    Light for brighter lives and a better world

     

    Signify, the world leader in lighting, is committed to make the low-carbon future a reality. We offer businesses, cities, and consumers the energy-efficient products, systems, and services to reduce global electricity consumption for lighting by over a third—and we want to show you how you can do your part.

    We’ve proven our commitment to innovation and sustainable leadership with breakthrough technologies like ultra-energy efficient lighting and EyeComfort lighting, design for circular economy, use of sustainable materials that can be recycled and bio-circular, and phasing out of most plastic packaging materials for consumer products. We don’t plan to stop now: in fact, we’re doubling down on our efforts to move forward more quickly—and to help our customers move more quickly, too.

    We’re working to double our positive impact

     

    Leadership means showing the way—and in terms of sustainability action, we’ve done just that. We have been using 100% renewable electricity in our operations since 2020.

    With our Brighter Lives, Better World 2025 program, we are taking specific, measurable actions to double our positive impact on the environment and society, using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as our strategic compass.

    Let’s flip the Green Switch together

     
    Transitioning from conventional lighting to connected LED lighting can save up to 80% on lighting-related energy consumption. We call this transition the Green Switch, and it’s one of the quickest and most effective ways that you can make progress toward your sustainability goals.

    We’re committed to helping you make the Green Switch today—whether you’re a mayor, a business entrepreneur, a sustainability manager, a homeowner, or a lighting professional.
     

    Make a difference with sustainable lighting

     

    Sustainable lighting means lighting products designed to be energy-efficient, serviceable, and upgradeable. It means lighting designed to help us see well, feel well, and perform well. At Signify, it also means building a sustainable value chain, including circular solutions designed for long service life, repair, and recycling.

    We’re committed to offering products, systems, and services that enable our customers to make more sustainable choices. With the number of light points worldwide estimated at approximately 31 billion,* the potential impact is enormous.
