Lighting product design for a Circular Economy

Joining the Sustainability Revolution | A practical workshop showing how to validate sustainability of lighting products

Lighting product design for a circular economy is an in depth one day workshop.

Hosted by industrial designer Simon Fisher of F Mark, the CPD-accredited* event showcases considerations and regulations that are influencing design for a Circular Economy within lighting.

The workshops provide updates on the regulatory landscape for lighting, with a focus on practical delivery of TM66 and TM65.

You will learn

  • How TM66 and TM65 combine to validate both the circular and embodied carbon content of products already designed.
  • How these metrics can be used in future developments to better inform circular decision making in the design phase of the project.

We physically run through the process with a sample product and show the outcomes, hopefully demystifying the process!

The course may also be booked as an in-house, single company event
please contact us for more details.


*CPD accredited,  a certificate is issued to all who attend.
Recolight is a member of the global CPD Certification Service.
