Sustainability

We’ve been making robust, long lasting luminaires since 1963. As part of the Fagerhult Group, our sustainability promise is to create action for a better environment and a brighter future.

Environmental accreditation

We are accredited to the ISO 14001 Environmental Management system. Our purpose built high quality manufacturing facility has helped us reduce our carbon footprint. Rain water harvesting, solar panels, material recycling and plastic reduction have resulted in our facility being awarded the BREEAM ’Excellent’ accreditation.

Sustainable manufacturing

In accordance with our sustainability strategy, we have recently upgraded older machinery to state of the art high efficiency, low energy consumption machines. Material recycling is a very important part of our manufacturing processes. We limit the use of plastic and we even make our own boxes.

Environmental benefits of LED

With a view to reducing CO2 emissions and energy consumption, the replacement of less efficient light sources to LED is becoming increasingly important. LED lighting can potentially reduce electricity use by between 50-60% and the level of light output can reduce the number of luminaires required.

Sustainable technology upgrades

Energy efficiency is a key part of our sustainability promise. Our luminaires incorporate a removable internal gear tray to enable sustainable technology upgrades, ensuring long life lighting and low electricity consumption.

The robust construction of our luminaires, made from recycable materials including aluminium or steel, enable the internal technology to be upgraded without the product housing needing replacing.
