AEG EcoLine is an independently verified accreditation that is assigned to AEG’s sustainability hero appliances that host the brands highest UK energy efficiency ratings.

According to AEG’s research-based approach and Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs), approximately 85% of the global climate impact of an appliance, during its lifespan, is generated when it is being used in the home by consumers. Therefore, to help reduce climate impact and continue providing high-quality performance, all AEG EcoLine products were designed to help the consumer to see quickly and easily which appliances are the most eco-friendly, with the most energy efficient uses and features.

The range includes washing machines, hobs, dishwashers, and freestanding ovens that feature AEG’s highest UK energy rating, such as the 9000 SteamPro Oven (Energy Rating A++), which is 20% more energy efficient than a traditional non-steam oven. Included in this selection is also the 9000 Series AbsoluteCare® 10kg Washing Machine that is rated 30% more energy efficient than other A rated washing machines on the market.

All appliances are designed with functions to ensure consumer needs are met and help reduce the environmental impact, including:

  • AEG EcoLine washing machines have an energy rating better than the best A rating on the market and with resource saving features such as AutoDose, which minimises detergent wastage, and AbsoluteWash, which cleans efficiently at 30ºC and saves 30% energy
