Lighting and the circular economy webinar - New regulations and standards for lighting - listen to replay

Lighting & Circular Economy | New regulations & standards for lighting

The Recolight webinar held on 28 May 2020 gave an update on what you need to know about new regulations, standards and commercial requirements for lighting.

Defra’s Circular Economy Team, LightingEurope, and Recolight provided an essential introduction to the changes. The webinar was introduced and chaired by Ray Molony.

Sustainability is rapidly moving from “The right thing to do to safeguard our planet” to “A must do to stay in business”. The earlier companies start, the more likely they are to be able to meet/exceed the new requirements.
