Climate and energy

    The time to switch to energy-efficient lighting is now


    The world is facing a rapidly warming climate and an energy crisis that is now truly global. Energy-efficient lighting has an important role to play in climate action initiatives for cities, businesses, and consumers.


    “There has never been a more urgent need for efficient solutions that reduce the amount of energy we consume,” says Maurice Loosschilder, Head of Sustainability at Signify. “If we want to live in a carbon-neutral world in 2050, at least half of the change we need to make will come from reducing our energy consumption.”

    Let’s flip the Green Switch — together


    Lighting accounts for 12% of global power consumption. Compared to conventional lighting, connected LED lighting can save up to 80% on lighting-related energy consumption. We call this transition the Green Switch, and it’s a quick and effective way 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.
