Lighting and the Circular Economy
Announcing Recolight’s webinar series for 2021
Recolight have announced a new Circular Economy webinar series for 2021. It will build on the events held in 2020, and the progress being made by the lighting industry. All webinars will be chaired by Ray Molony who said:
“It’s vital that the industry continues this conversation if it’s to address its responsibility to the wider world. For too long the sector has been a rule-taker. These webinars are helping us come up with a strategy that’s built from the bottom up.”
The first three webinars are:
- Luminaire design: The Circular Economy regulations you need to know – 30 March
- Return of the lamp: How the replaceable revolution will change lighting – 29 April
- How to go net zero: A lighting manufacturer’s guide to becoming carbon neutral – 27 May
The Recolight webinar series in 2020 examined the Circular Economy for lighting. Discussions ranged from new regulations for lighting, through to extending the life of luminaires.
A range of Lighting Producers, specifiers, and designers presented positive initiatives being undertaken to reduce the impact on the environment. One of the topics still up for debate is whether the return of replaceable light sources, drivers and other components is the best route to a Circular Economy in the lighting industry.
Recolight CEO Nigel Harvey said,
“I’m encouraged to see the lighting industry taking steps to become more sustainable. It is a given that we produce light sources that are very energy efficient. Moving beyond that and adopting circular economy principles in how we manufacture those products will soon be a must do, and not just an ought to do.”
More events will be announced for later in the year.
