Does the ENERGY STAR certification cover the energy used to manufacture, package and dispose of the product? Follow

No. ENERGY STAR is used to designate products that use significantly less energy than the typical product alternatives without sacrificing product performance. For these products their major environmental impact is a result of the energy they use, which typically comes from the burning of fossil fuels. At this time, the energy required for manufacturing, packaging, or disposal is not assessed. EPA intends to do more work in this area in the near future.
