Yes, there are others, although they are predominantly used outside of United States.
The European Union Energy Label is used on electrical appliances (as well as lightbulbs and cars) and provides a more gradated rating than just a certification like Energy Star. The scale is from A to G with the A being the most efficient, with different definitions of how it is calculated depending on the type of item.
An alternative certification is done by TCO Development, which is owned by the Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees (a trade union organization, whose acronym in Swedish is TCO). Besides energy usage, the TCO label has requirements in emissions, ecology, and even ergonomics. It applies to computers and some of their accessories/peripherals such as displays, as well as cell phones and office furniture.
