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
