    Signify releases 2000 Environmental Product Declarations

    March 21, 2024

    Signify releases 2,000 Environmental Product Declarations, covering 70,000 product variations, in drive to advance transparency and sustainable innovation

    Eindhoven, the NetherlandsSignify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, has committed to sharing the environmental impact of its full range of products. The company has already made available more than 2,000 Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), covering more than 70,000 product variations around the world. Signify also discloses product information through the Declare labelling system for customers in the Americas. As the EPD program continues, all products worldwide will ultimately receive EPDs.


    Municipalities, businesses and individuals are increasingly looking for fast, effective ways to reduce their environmental footprint. As lighting currently accounts for 12% of global electricity consumption and 5% of global CO2 emissions1, transitioning to energy-efficient LED lighting can significantly reduce global electricity consumption. EPDs quantify products’ environmental impact over their full life cycle, enabling comparisons to comparable products and empowering customers to make informed decisions on lighting investments.


    In addition to driving greater transparency for customers, EPDs are advancing evidence-based sustainable innovation within Signify, providing a quantified footprint, which acts as a baseline for further improvements in next generation product iterations.

    Signify is committed to making a low-carbon future a reality, by offering businesses, cities and consumers energy-efficient products, systems and services that can reduce global electricity consumption for lighting by over a third. Being transparent about our products’ environmental impact gives customers the information they need to make informed decisions, whether they are lighting cities, offices or their own homes, as well as helps us meet our own sustainability goals.”
