The two-day conference, hosted by Resource Innovation Institute (RII), will offer educational programs, roundtable discussions, and networking opportunities focused on policies, programs, and practices to advance efficient greenhouse and vertical farming. It will bring together multidisciplinary leaders interested in furthering efficient practice in greenhouse production and vertical farming to build consensus on government regulations, utility and efficiency program support, and technology integration.
Two of Signify’s own will participate in the conference program: Bram Lansink, the Global Marketing and Strategy Director for Horticulture LED Solutions, will join the Executive Roundtable on Tuesday, November 1, to discuss innovation and sustainability in indoor and greenhouse farming and what the future looks like. Blake Lange, Business Development Manager for Signify’s City Farming team, will participate in a discussion focused on best practices in CEA utility and efficiency programs.
The conference host, RII, is a non-profit organization founded in 2016 for the purpose of driving the acceptance and embracement of resource efficiency in the CEA industry. RII’s purpose aligns closely to Signify’s ambitious sustainability goals: to enable a more sustainable future through products, and systems and services, which includes the development and adoption of energy-efficient LED lighting in indoor agriculture.
Signify’s Brighter Lives, Better World program, established in 2020, sets ambitious and comprehensive targets including increasing the energy efficiency of the company’s portfolio to reduce emissions and drive carbon reductions at suppliers, a focus on circular products (products that can be reprinted, refurbished, reused, or recycled), and achieving carbon neutrality, which the company realized in 2020.
