Philips continuously strives to make it simple for consumers to reduce their impact on the environment, particularly in the areas of lowering energy consumption, reducing material usage in production and packaging, reducing the use of hazardous substances, and improving recyclability. In line with this holistic approach, Philips Econova TVs represents the next step in eco-design.

The Philips Econova has been awarded an A++ Energy Label due to its extremely low power consumption. This is obtained through the use of Edge LED, increased glass transitivity, and dynamic dimming video algorithms. So when power is not needed it is not used.
