What we do

LightingEurope’s mission is to achieve the lighting industry’s Strategic Vision to deliver the value of lighting by 2025.

The lighting industry is harnessing the potential of LEDification and Sustainability and is delivering energy-efficient and sustainable lighting products.

The increased Value of Lighting to society will come from Intelligent Lighting Systems and Human Centric Lighting.

LightingEurope liaises with European legislators to share our members’ technical expertise and to help shape a healthy regulatory framework with simple rules that are better enforced, benefit people and the planet and foster a fair competitive business environment in Europe.
