The third Lighting & the Circular Economy webinar – next steps for the Lighting Industry

register for Recolight webinar_Lighting & the Circular Economy 15 Sept 2020

The third Recolight webinar in our Lighting & the Circular Economy series will look at the next steps required for the lighting industry to move towards a Circular Economy. This will follow on from the conversation of our first two webinars.

In the first webinar Defra, Lighting Europe, and Recolight presented new regulations & standards for lighting. In the second we were joined by the lighting industry who challenged us to be more sustainable and presented solutions  to enable this.

Ray Molony will introduce and chair the session.

Helen Loomes, Business Development Directorat Trilux Lighting, will present Repro-light;  a European research project that aims to support the European lighting industry in moving towards a more sustainable and competitive future.

Michael Grubb, Creative Director, will share the success of his studio’s Re:lit project.  A project that since 2014 has taken perfectly fine lighting equipment that would be sent to landfill and put them in a new environment to be used.

Owain Griffiths is Head of Circular Economy Strategy at Oakdene Hollins. They  support organisations and policy makers transitioning to a circular economy. He will discuss the size, barriers, and opportunities to deploying a Circular Economy model.

The Webinar will conclude with a panel discussion addressing the end user; their expectations, requirements, and how the lighting industry should position themselves with a Circular Economy model.


Ray Molony Editor of Lux Review“It’s vital that the industry has a meaningful dialogue with its customers and other stakeholders about how we play our role in fixing our wounded planet. Inevitably, there will be extra costs associated with sustainable and circular economy measures, and we need to address these honestly and holistically.”
