MAKING

EFFICIENCY
A SIMPLE CHOICE

TAKING THE TRUSTED BLUE LABEL TO NEW HEIGHTS


The ENERGY STAR brand is recognized by 85% of people in America as a symbol of energy efficiency. EPA asked Crosby to help take advantage of this high awareness to elevate the brand to be more than a label on energy efficient appliances. The time was ripe to reinvigorate ENERGY STAR as the leading resource of energy saving advice and guidance. And to educate America about the brand’s leadership in certifying energy efficient new homes and helping business partners save billions in energy costs.

Drawing a contrast with the dizzying array of energy saving voices, blogs, and resources available today, we positioned the venerable ENERGY STAR brand as “the simple choice” for all things energy efficient.

We developed shareable branded content for use by EPA and its more than 16,000 ENERGY STAR partners, which represent America’s leading manufacturers, retailers, utilities, public sector organizations, and businesses.

To help communicate helpful and timely information and to aid the brand’s retail partners in promoting seasonal messages, we create engaging graphics that tell the ENERGY STAR story simply and persuasively.
