Another example is NatureConnect, Signify’s latest skylight that has been inspired by the qualities of natural daylight and the way it affects behaviour and wellbeing in the workplace.
It gives the perception of an endless sky for freedom and is built from a combination of energy efficient LED’s.
In a previous article, CHN also explored the way Signify has been improving LED-based smart-street lighting systems that have a wide variety of benefits, including helping societies move towards a circular and more environmentally friendly economy.
“We can’t afford not to take bold climate action – it’s needed, and it’s needed now” said Eric Rondolat, CEO of Signify in a recent video address. “If the current crisis is like a bad dream, the nightmare of a climate crisis will prove far worse for humanity,” he added.
The good news is that Signify leads the way in pioneering energy efficiency in lighting, a vital instrument in the toolkit for reaching net-zero targets in line with the Paris Agreement, and the coronavirus hasn’t impacted the company’s commitment to fighting climate change.
“We remain on course to achieve carbon neutrality later this year. Currently 94% of our energy comes from renewables, soon this will be 100%, and 82.5% of our revenues come from sustainable products, systems and services,” said Rondolat.
Although the pandemic has made it feel like climate action has taken many steps backwards, plans to increase energy efficiency across various sectors reveal that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
