Energy use and our environment are inexorably linked. No matter how hard we try, using innovative efficient new luminaire designs and controls, an installation will always have a carbon footprint. But, how much energy is used in the production of luminaires adding to that carbon footprint?

One light can indirectly produce one tonne of CO2 per annum from its energy use alone, what can we do about it? A balance must be achieved between the quality of the lit environment from the user’s viewpoint and all aspects of the environmental impact of the installation throughout its operating life. Are you passionate about helping to save the environment, and would you like to save money at the same time? This presentation answers these questions and suggests a modern approach to reducing all our carbon concerns.
