End-of-life luminaires: Taking our responsibilities seriously | a panel discussion
In the second Recolight online discussion we explore the options for luminaries at the end of life. We need to look for ways to extend their life through reuse, refurbishment, extended warranties, & leasing business models. And no longer see them as a single life product.

How do we truly make lighting a part of the Circular Economy’?
- What happens to light fittings when they’re removed from a ceiling?
- If we’re lucky, the luminaires are recycled. If we’re not, they end up in a skip.
- Could they be reused, repurposed, upgraded, returned to original manufacturer?
- How do we maximise the sustainability of the products we make, sell, and specify?
Our panel of industry experts will discuss how these opportunities can become a reality for the lighting industry.
Please join in the debate with host Ray Molony and panelists:
- Bob Bohannon | President of the Society of Light and Lighting 2020-21
- Claire Snow | Director, ICER
- Chris Miller | Director, Skinflint
- John Bullock | Publisher and editor, The Light Review
- Matthew Paskin | Design Director, Whitecroft Lighting
- Nigel Harvey | CEO, Recolight
We encourage you to ask questions in advance on the registration form. There will also be a Q & A session on the day.
The first Recolight panel discussion was held on Friday 6 November.
Are replaceable light sources, drivers and other components the best route to a Circular Economy for the lighting industry?
