Signify has achieved carbon neutrality

Lighting company Signify has achieved carbon neutrality for all its operations.

The company announced that as well as achieving carbon neutrality for all its operations across the world as well as using 100% renewable electricity.

It has also revealed a new five-year journey in which it will focus on doubling its positive impact on the environment and society.

It has reduced its operational emissions by more than 70% since 2010, having shifted to more energy-efficient technologies at its sites, to more sustainable modes of transport and optimised logistics planning, and to less travel in a more sustainable way. It also uses 100% renewable electricity, supported through two power purchase agreements, one in Texas and a second in Poland. The balance of emission reductions is achieved through a carbon offsetting program with projects aimed at benefiting the wellbeing of local communities.

Eric Rondolat, CEO of Signify, said: “I’m extremely proud of all the Signify employees and thank them for supporting our carbon neutrality objective. It is a truly significant achievement for us and we call on many others to join us.”

“However, the world is still facing demographic change, urbanisation, climate change and resource scarcity. This is not a time to pause and celebrate, but a time to become even more ambitious and accelerate our efforts to address these challenges. Growth for sustainability and providing a great place to work are firmly anchored as central parts of our company strategy. This means that when it comes to sustainability, we will go beyond carbon neutrality and double our positive impact on the environment and on society in 2025.”
