    Sustainability is central to the Signify strategy. It is the company purpose to unlock the extraordinary potential of light for brighter lives and a better world. Signify is focused on increasing the energy efficiency of its products and reducing energy use in production processes. Through its sustainable lighting and sustainable operations, Signify is addressing population growth, resource challenges, and digitalization.
