In the following pages of this report, you will find that a wonderful effort has gone into maintaining our industry’s Home Appliance 2025 vision and call for action: our members have continued to provide valuable contributions to the European economy, to smarter and better EU regulation for the sector, to advancing sustainable lifestyles for EU citizens and to further developing smart(er) living in a connected home environment.
During 2017, our members have worked hard to develop new and innovative technologies that help everyone in Europe lead more comfortable, sustainable and healthy lives. But 2017 has not only been a fruitful year for our members, it has also been an exciting year for our association as we readied ourselves for our newly refreshed corporate identity. With the release of this report, CECED has become APPLiA. You will find a first look of our new identity in the following pages. I am sure you will enjoy the read. In the meantime, we welcome any feedback you may wish to send us in response. Our door continues to be open!
