>Sustainability

All of our projects will be circular and zero CO2 by 2030 this is our pledge, and this is how we will get there

Our Manifesto

We go beyond the green-washing and the bling.

Sustainability is not only a box to tick for us. It is a core value that we implement in all projects through concrete actions, a developed approach, efficient process and refined method.

Our 4 pillars:

  • Wellbeing
  • Circularity
  • Energy Saving
  • Light pollution

Sustainability services

Human-centric lighting can be a big empty word but everybody wants it. We know how to make your projects human centric. We offer this service to revise your current lighting project or reality to make users happy getting all those long term benefits.

 

We strive to produce lighting designs that make our cities and buildings more inclusive, safe, resilient, and healthy.

Expectations of lighting for a space are not any more mere illumination. It is known now that lighting can and does more than that. Lighting affects our productivity, our wellbeing and the overall experience of every place we go to.

 

Building a new project today without implementing human centric lighting design is a missed opportunity, and we can advise and design it.

 

Whether a luminaire/lighting equipment can be repaired and refurbished or a project could
be suitable for circular luminaires and buy-back schemes, we advise our clients
on the best solution for their project needs and goals.  

The circular economy is a valid alternative to the linear (consumption) economy and will be profitable. It is gaining traction by the day. Lighting, with its fast technological advancements, follows with a particular set of technical challenges that need to be understood, navigated and eventually resolved. We are experts!

The era of throwing something away just because it is cheaper to replace it with a new one is over. 

It isn’t anymore just about using LED. There is so much more to it and we help our clients navigate this complexity. Reducing light points, questioning light levels based on specific space features, thinking of maintenance early on, implementing control systems are some of the other ways we reduce energy consumption.

Protecting and restoring ecosystems and supporting biodiversity is crucial for reaching world sustainable goals. Every Municipality, regardless of its size, can make a difference for the world, for its residents, for its biodiversity and for its energy bill.

Our sustainable approach

Sustainable spaces

From private homes to complex building projects. We work with architects to enhance and elevate their designs with concealed, functional and sustainable lighting solutions.

Lighting design that is well coordinated with the other disciplines leads to better designed spaces and happier users.

Sustainable neighborhoods

Sustainabile lighting applied to green/blue recreational areas, a specific street, a new built part of town.

These are the opportunities to ignite change within a municipality and urban fabric of a town.

Sustainable cities

Over the years we worked with many municipalities to achieve their visions, enhance their assets and improve residents wellbeing through sustainable lighting masterplan strategies.

Sustainability ranks high on every municipality agenda, lighting design can follow that and lead the way for other disciplines too.

What goes on in our heads at all times...

To light, or not to light?

Is it useful? 

Is it well focused?

Is the lux level as low as it can be?

Can it be dimmed?

Is the color temperature appropriate?
