We have deliberately chosen the name CEDER. The sustainability of the CEDER tree symbolises the vision of Lightronics. In this vision, corporate social responsibility, social return, circularity, social safety and quality are important core values.
For example, we plant trees to compensate for our CO₂ footprint. We are committed to creating social value and are synonymous with comfortable lighting that helps optimise social safety. This approach creates high added value in streetscapes, with a special place reserved for the CEDER.
1 - Aluminium top hood and cap, silver anodised
2 - Aluminium LED plate and electronics unit, easily replaceable
3 - Optical lens, (optional) polycarbonate
4 - Aluminium support pipe
5 - Diffuser, polycarbonate
6 - Aluminium collar, anodised or non-anodised
CIRCULAR IN ALL ASPECTS
The CEDER has been designed for maximum circularity. Reduce, reuse and recycle are the main keywords here. We minimise the use of raw materials, maximise the reuse of parts and make high-quality recycling possible. The design has been optimised to eliminate glue and sealant application operations. The collar can be recycled at the end of the luminaires’ service life and used as a base material for a new light post, or a similar component. The aluminium parts are anodised to allow future recycling without additional treatment to remove a coating.
PREPARED FOR THE FUTURE
The CEDER can be equipped with smart electronics and sensors. The luminaire can be made future-ready by incorporating Zhaga connectors in the housing. Because the LED plate and driver unit can also be replaced quickly and without tools, subsequent integration of the latest lighting technology is fast and easy. The housing of the CEDER is built from smart sub-assemblies to ensure fast assembly of the final product with minimal use of tools.
We have created a special place at Lightronics for our talented people from Baanbrekers. We have worked with this sheltered workplace for more than 25 years and currently employ 13 talented people who would otherwise have poor job prospects in the normal labour market. Among other tasks, they assemble components for the CEDER. These subassembly* activities could even be carried out at a different location within the municipality. This is how we make a positive contribution to social corporate responsibility. *One of the requirements for a valid CE mark is that a functional test must be carried out in accordance with the IEC 60591-1 standard.
We make every effort to keep our CO₂ footprint as low as possible, for example by installing 700 solar panels to make our production fully energy-neutral. And by planting trees every year, we help restore the Earth's natural environment. These initiatives replenish natural resources, such as trees, that have been lost due to industrialisation and also contribute to CO₂ compensation.
