We need to accelerate the switch toward energy-efficient connected LEDs. This will contribute to countries meeting their targets to reduce emissions.
In the approach to the UN’s COP26 Climate Change Conference, a sense of impatience has echoed across news channels. The clock is ticking and the world is warming. There’s a widespread sense of unrest that calls for action, not words, to minimise and avert the damage we as human beings have caused to the planet we share.
