Green lighting products can reduce costs, energy consumption and CO² emissions. How? They offer us all a significant environmental improvement in energy efficiency, combined with extended reliability.
We help make choices easier thanks to our green logo. This logo clearly identifies products that are significantly more energy efficient compared to their competitors or predecessors. The articles carrying this logo are either delivered with and an energy efficient light source (LED, Power-LED, CFL-I, …) or are only to be used with such a light source.
But, nowadays it goes beyond making choices easier or focusing on plain energy saving. Over the last few years, environment (climate change) and energy efficiency (scarcity, compatibility) have been important topics on the political agenda. This has resulted in changes to legislation on energy efficiency, and use of materials.
The focus of the EuP Directive is to set minimum energy efficiency requirements, which means phasing out products that cannot fulfill these requirements and developing alternative products that will. In support of the energy efficiency requirements, the lighting industry will have to give information about the energy efficiency of products in much greater detail...
REACH is a new European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use. It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances. The new law entered into force on 1 June 2007...
