Ecodesign: Airedale’s stance

Airedale’s position on the Ecodesign Directive

As a British Manufacturer, we are driven by quality and efficiency at every stage of our research, development and manufacturing process. We meet the challenges of regulatory changes head on and innovatively.
The Ecodesign Directive is a ‘game changer’.

Introduced as part of the European framework to help the European Union (EU) achieve its 20-20-20 target for 20% energy efficiency improvement and 20% lower carbon emissions target, all to be realised by 2020.


All our ongoing products and systems will be designed to meet current and future Ecodesign and F-Gas regulations regarding energy efficiency and carbon emissions. We recognise that providing our customers with energy efficient solutions is a critical sustainable development opportunity for us all, subsequently it has been a pillar of our business for well over 40 years.


Airedale is committed to environmental responsibility and limiting the environmental impact of our units. For some, less proactive manufacturers, the Ecodesign Directive will cause some sizable headaches.

For Airedale, it is a proposition we welcome and relish, and a great many Airedale solutions are already Ecodesign compliant.
