Integrated into our daily business.

We strive to always do our best and in a responsible manner make sure that we treat people well and that we continuously lower the impact on the environment. We call our sustainability agenda ‘Positive change for better living’ and it is an integrated part of our business strategy and our daily operations.

Why Light Matters

Energy-efficiency is high on the agenda to reach the climate goals and the lighting industry has a part to play. Lighting accounts for up to 15 per cent of global electricity consumption and by using the latest smart lighting solutions, we can potentially reduce energy consumption by up to 90 per cent.

With our footprint, we know that in average 88 per cent of the lifetime GHG emissions of our luminaries comes from the use phase. That is why we put a lot of effort in contributing with new technology and knowledge to help our customers optimise the use of the luminaires. We also are a Group with essential knowledge when it comes to production. We are constantly developing our products to minimise resource consumption and waste as well as using recycled or renewable material.

Our sustainability efforts

Our ambition is to contribute to a better world through smart lighting solutions. We want everyone who comes into contact with our solutions to be able to fully do what they want in the best possible way, thanks to our lighting.

Contributing to better lives

When it comes to people’s well-being, studies in recent years have shown how important light intensity and color temperature can be, for example that light’s color temperatures can create warm light that has a soothing effect and helps us to relax, or cold light that energizes and activates us.
