It is time for our industry to become more sustainable.
For the last 20 years, the contribution of LED technology to energy savings has been a significant factor—accounting for at least 30% of the overall picture of eco-lighting. With LED technology firmly taking root it is now time to enter in the phase of redesigning the fittings to further take care of the environment. This is about circular economy, easier maintenance and removing plastics from this field. While some regulations will arrive from the European Commission, we want to go further and anticipate important future changes.
LVMH Lighting and TEMELOY created a THINK TANK in May 2018 with more than 25 lighting suppliers to collaborate in the fields of eco-design innovation, services, and reliability.

OUR RATING SYSTEM
The Lighting for Good Charter.
In order to reduce environmental impact and to obtain data and information about the life cycle of a product, we partner with the research organization CIRAIG to process Life Cycle Analysis. Based on this analysis we determined criteria used in a rating system – the Lighting for Good Charter – which can be applied for any lighting apparel through our scorecard.
