Carbon neutral

Our 2020 carbon neutral commitment


Everyone at Signify is enthusiastic to play their part in making our company as sustainable as possible. We’re well on our way to becoming carbon neutral in all our operations by 2020, saving energy in factories and offices, optimizing our logistics and supply chain, and reducing business travel. At the end of 2016 we had already reduced our carbon footprint by 54% and increased our use of renewables globally to 67%. By showing leadership on our journey to carbon neutrality, our employees are becoming ambassadors for sustainability.
