    With LED lighting installed on our sites instead of conventional lighting, we expect lighting-related energy consumption to decrease by up to 65% and as much of a decrease in associated carbon dioxide emissions."

    Customer Challenge


    Air Liquide is aiming to reduce its CO2 emissions by 33% by 2035 versus 2020, and targeting full carbon neutrality by 2050. Therefore, it has identified levers to reduce the CO2 footprint from its industrial activities. Furthermore, Air Liquide believes that each action, however small, should be considered for implementation. That's why an upgrade of the lighting network was identified as an efficient and cost-effective project. Teaming up with world leader in light, Signify, the ALight initiative was born.

    Light as a Service


    Air Liquide’s lighting upgrade is delivered through either a CAPEX or Light as a Service (LaaS) contract model. The latter is the most cost-effective and hassle-free way to greatly improve your lighting infrastructure, while preserving your financing capacity to more business-oriented projectss. With LaaS, Air Liquide only pays a fixed monthly amount, most of the time offset by the savings achieved. This price covers an agreed amount of light, guaranteed energy savings, as well as all design, installation, and operational costs. No upfront investment is required.


    Signify will also carry out annual health checks and preventative maintenance on the lighting and recommend any new technologies or innovations that are developed in the future. With Light as a Service, Air Liquide can rely on years of lighting expertise and a detailed plan that ensures the highest quality of light with the energy savings to match.
