Another initiative of the Carbon Labelling project was the development and implementation of a CO2Star label for lubricants (motor oils). With innovative (synthetic) lubricants 2-6% fuel savings can be achieved and thus, carbon emissions can be reduced. The CO2Star label was applied to four lublicants of the German fuel retailer Q1 in a pilot initiative of the Carbon Labelling project.
The CO2Star campaign was also linked to the German information campaign on motor oils by the dena (Deutsche Energie Agentur, Germany) “ich-und-mein-auto”. This campaign informs consumers about efficiency savings through improved motor oils. Please also visit the website of the campaign: http://www.ichundmeinauto.info
