Preserving biodiversity with LED lighting for food

    A farm-to-fork strategy that works for the climate, producers, and consumers


    Food systems account for nearly a third of GHG emissions and consume large amounts of natural resources. Sustainable food production, on the other hand, ensures fresh, healthy food for all while limiting its climate impact and securing fair economic returns for growers and farmers. Transitioning to this method of sustainable food production can reduce emissions and restore biodiversity by conserving land and natural resources.

    What Signify's Green Switch can do

    Signify offers lighting specifically designed for more productive and sustainable food production methods, such as greenhouse food production, vertical farming and sustainable aquaculture. Our science-based LED light recipes help boost yield, increase predictability and improve plant quality, while our LED grow lights consume up to 50% less electricity than conventional options. Our aquaculture lighting boosts yields, improves feed conversion and improves animal welfare.

    Solar lighting can enhance the growth of fish


    Philips solar lighting has been proven to stimulate fish growth and improve water quality, making fish farming a more sustainable practice.

    LED lighting aids sustainable fish farming


    The Kingfish Company in the Netherlands worked with Signify to design and implement an effective lighting system that would help to stimulate fish growth.

    LED lighting enables year-round crop production


    Dutch strawberry grower, Dutchberries has installed Philips GreenPower LED toplighting compact over four hectares, helping to optimize growth all year round.

    Produce even more vegetables with LED lighting


    Philips LED lighting helps local growers improve their yield, reducing the need for carbon-producing importations. See how it's working for a Norwegian tomato grower.

    LED ensures controllability of plant growth


    World-renowned tomato cultivators, Bryte from the Netherlands and Den Berk Délice from Belgium, share their experiences with hybrid lighting during the first cultivation season.

    Improved climate control helps save energy with LEDs


    LED has a lower heat output which allows for better control of the greenhouse temperature compared to HPS. This will reduce the need for ventilation and therefore the loss of CO2 from the greenhouse.

    Lighting for food availability: an appetite for change


    The global population is growing faster than our food supply. Innovation in lighting is key to unlocking more efficient and more sustainable food production.

    Aquaculture LED lighting optimizing growth results and improving fish welfare


    Signify’s new Seacage 340W fish light helps to optimize growth results while reducing the need for sea lice treatment by up to 50%.

    Signify installs Poland’s first FULL LED lighting in a pink tomato greenhouse


    Signify, the world leader in lighting, has installed LED lamps in a Tomimaru Muchoo pink tomato greenhouse for the first time in Poland.
