    NEW YORK & SOMERSET, New Jersey – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, and the National Hockey League (NHL) today announced their partnership to help the more than 4,800 ice rinks across North America, from major arenas to community facilities, transition to sustainable LED and connected lighting. These solutions can help the hockey industry reduce its environmental footprint by improving energy efficiency, while also delivering health and well-being benefits and an enhanced fan experience.

     

    “The NHL is committed to advancing sustainable business practices and reducing the environmental impact of all levels of hockey for future generations of players and fans,” said Max Paulsen, Director, Business Development, NHL. “Upgrading to LED and connected lighting is better for our planet – and offers a practical and cost-effective solution for rinks across North America. Through our partnership with Signify, rink owners will have the opportunity to reduce operational costs, streamline maintenance and focus resources on improving the holistic, in-venue experience. We are thrilled to name Signify the Preferred Lighting Company of the NHL and look forward to working together to support facilities’ switch to sustainable lighting solutions.”

     

    Signify offers custom lighting services to help sporting venues assess their current equipment and create a plan according to their needs, whether it’s a retrofit upgrade or installing a new connected lighting system like Interact Sports. Signify also provides high-quality lamps, luminaires and software for a range of indoor and outdoor applications, from UV-C lighting to help disinfect locker rooms to color-changing, exterior façade lighting to excite spectators.

    We are proud to partner with the NHL and bring better, sustainable lighting solutions to hockey facilities across North America. Together, we can have a positive impact on the sport’s environmental footprint and on all who play and enjoy the game."
