Protecting the Planet

As part of making the world better, safer and more beautiful with light, we are committed to building a more sustainable future - both through our products and the way in which we operate

Product Impacts

Our largest positive contribution to protecting the environment comes from developing lighting solutions that reduce the energy use and GHG emissions during their use phase, thereby supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy. We also reduce the impacts embedded within our products by avoiding or minimizing the use of hazardous substances, setting standards for supplier envionmental performance and innovating to improve the efficiency of lighting solutions

Operational Impacts

Our manufacturing operations are the primary contributor to our own environmental footprint. To reduce this impact, we pursue comprehensive programs to improve the efficiency of manufacturing, lower energy and water use, reduce waste, and reduce negative impacts from chemical processes.
