The lighting industry is taking the lead in sustainability, first by delivering significant energy savings for lighting products and systems. The industry also has a great track record in prolonging the lifetime of products, in collection and recycling and in the reduction of hazardous substances.

Our ambition is to further minimize our ecological footprint and continue to deliver sustainable products and business models.

LightingEurope supports the industry to apply sustainability principles and will continue to advocate to decisionmakers how these principles should be reflected in rules impacting lighting.

There are dedicated collection schemes for lighting products. We therefore partner with the European association EucoLight.
