The power of Lightronics

GOOD FOR PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT

In our view, entrepreneurship extends beyond developing and producing lighting. We are also committed to improving the future. By developing energy-saving and sustainable lighting, and by meaningfully adapting our entire business process. 

 

For example, we use the 700 solar panels on our roof to satisfy our energy requirements, we plant trees every year to compensate for our CO₂ emissions and we employ people with limited job prospects in the normal labour market (our ‘Baanbrekers’). We are very proud to have achieved level 4 certification on the CSR Performance Ladder and level 5 on the CO₂ Performance Ladder. This certification demonstrates how we work every day to create optimal lighting solutions for people and the environment.

Our ambitions

IKARES

In line with our sustainability policy, Lightronics is a participant in the IKARES project. The IKARES project aims to reduce the energy consumption and CO₂ emissions associated with lighting by at least 60 percent. A further goal is to install and operate this energy-efficient lighting without any adverse effects on quality of life and social safety in an area.

This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund.

Our talented people from Baanbrekers!

SOCIAL VALUE

Besides embracing our responsibility towards the environment, we at Lightronics also feel that we have a meaningful social role to fulfil. So we have provided employment for the amazing men and women sent to us by Baanbrekers, the local sheltered workplace, for more than 25 years. Subassemblies for various luminaires are painstakingly put together by our talented people from Baanbrekers. At the end of 2019, we set up a special area for them at Lightronics where their talents are put to optimal use.

Respect for human rights

CODE OF CONDUCT

To develop lighting for both people and planet, we require our suppliers to comply with the code of conduct of the International Labour Organisation (ILO). The ILO is a United Nations agency that monitors labour issues. This code of conduct covers topics such as child labour, compliance with the law, fighting corruption and respect for human rights.

A 100% circular future

RAW MATERIALS AGREEMENT

Lightronics signed the Raw Materials Agreement (Grondstoffentakkoord) in September 2018. This had led to various projects to improve the reusability of products and raw materials. Our ultimate goal is to achieve 100% circularity in the future. In a circular economy, waste does not exist and raw materials are reused over and over again. The Raw Materials Agreement sets out an agreed path to make the Dutch economy completely circular by 2050.

Reduction of C02 emissions

LEVEL 5 ON THE C0₂ PERFORMANCE LADDER

We are proud to have achieved certification at the highest level of the CO₂ Performance Ladder in 2019. This performance ladder is an instrument that measures the sustainability of companies, government departments and agencies in order to help them reduce their CO₂ emissions. The highest level is achieved when procedures implemented by the individual business to reduce CO₂ emissions are complemented by united action within the supply chain and the sector as a whole.
