Brighter Lives,

Better World

A promise and a commitment

 

By changing the way we create and use light, we can improve lives and have a positive impact on the planet. We have made some bold promises that we’ll deliver on by 2020. 80% of our revenues will be sustainable and we’ll also deliver 2 billion LED lamps and luminaires to the world. As a company, we’ll be raising our own sustainability bar by promising to be carbon neutral by 2020.
