CPD seminar – Sustainable Lighting for Railway Stations of the Future

With Great British Railways (GBR) replacing Network in Rail in 2023, the UK rail industry is focusing on sustainable lighting for the railway stations of the future.

This CIBSE accredited CPD seminar looks at how this will be achieved through the rail industry’s 4S framework: Sustainability, satisfaction (customer), safety and stewardship. We will look at what GBR considers a sustainable luminaire, the circular economy and sustainable product design. How manufacturers can aid safety measures and improve customer satisfaction will be examined and stewardship measures explained. The CPD will conclude with some rail lighting best practice advice.
