Sustainability - Our Global Commitment

Our commitment to environmental sustainability extends well beyond the bulb.

Environmental stewardship is a fundamental part of our business ethic. We increasingly use fewer natural resources, save energy in our manufacturing, reduce power plant emissions, and recycle lamps and other materials to ultimately avoid adding millions of pounds of waste ​each year to landfills.  And our commitment extends to our customers, as well by helping them save energy and reduce their carbon footprints.  At LEDVANCE, protecting our environment and caring for our communities aren't just the right things to do they're the only things to do.

Global Lighting Challenge

LEDVANCE announced its participation in the Clean Energy Ministerial Global Lighting Challenge (GLC) with a commitment to selling 2.5 billion energy efficient LED Lamps by 2023.  The Clean Energy Ministerial is a forum of countries working together to promote the global transition towards clean energy generation and consumption. The Global Lighting Challenge, launched in the winter of 2015, is a campaign focused on deploying 10 billion high efficiency, high quality affordable light bulbs, in an effort to combat climate change.  Achieving the goal of selling 2.5 billion LED Lamps by 2023 is estimated to save the equivalent amount of energy typically produced by 75 medium sized coal fired energy plants.
