    • Generated between 61% and 64% Climate action revenues, on track with our 72% target for 2025
    Eindhoven, the NetherlandsSignify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, has published its first-ever Climate Action Report, illustrating the progress we’re making in taking climate action across our entire value chain. In the first year of our ambitious five-year Brighter Lives, Better World 2025 sustainability program, we are on track to double the pace of the Paris Agreement 1.5°C scenario and have generated between 61% and 64% of Climate action revenues, contributing to our ambition to double our positive impact on society and the environment by the end of 2025.

    Climate change is one of the most important challenges we face. Pollution and overconsumption rapidly increase greenhouse emissions, warming the planet at an alarming rate. The 2021 IPCC report announced code red for humanity and laid out the disastrous effects of increased temperatures. Melting ice caps raise our sea levels, endangering coastal human settlements. Warmer ocean waters lead to acidification, diminishing animal life and vegetation. Higher temperatures cause more intense storms, floods, heavy snowfalls, and longer and more frequent droughts. And reduced freshwater availability limits our ability to grow food and crops.  

     

    “In 2021, the world was still warming faster than ever. There is a widespread sense of unrest that calls for action, not words, to minimize and avert the damage we, humans, have caused for the planet,” said Eric Rondolat, CEO of Signify in the Climate Action Report. “For Signify, this means we need to amplify our efforts, not only in our operations, but across our entire value chain, and help our stakeholders play their role in minimizing the impacts of climate change.”

    1 To ensure our efforts are in line with the targets of the Paris Agreement, all our commitments are based on Science-Based Targets.
