    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.

    Nedre Hanasand increases tomato yield by 30% by using Philips LED grow lights

     

    The Nedre Hanasand nursery, based in Norway, has increased their quality tomato yield by 30% year-round and improved the farm’s environmental profile thanks to Philips GreenPower LED toplighting.

    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.

    Remarkable results for vertical farming

     

    Our sustainable LED grow lights enable vertical farms across the EU to achieve remarkable results.

    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.

    An appetite for change

     

    With a growing population and increased food demands, how can lighting for food support the EU Green Deal’s biodiversity initiative?

    Aquaculture LED lighting optimizing growth results and improving fish welfare

     

    Sustainable aquaculture is essential for enhancing fish production and welfare throughout Europe’s seas.

    How can lights power Europe’s agribusiness?

     

     

    Food producers need to embrace innovative technologies as a way of future-proofing agricultural systems.

     

    Fresh, locally produced salads all year round,

    with Signify’s LED grow lights

     

    Swedish vertical farmer and salad producer Ljusgårda plans to increase its production 20-fold to better contribute to sustainable food production.

    Innovative greenhouse lighting boosts pink tomato growing in Poland

     

    Supporting innovative sustainable practices throughout the EU, we installed Poland’s first ever greenhouse lighting.
