We very much look forward to supporting our new members and their customers as they transition towards a circular economy,” said Nigel Harvey, Recolight CEO.
Towards the end of 2021, the company launched new circular economy services to facilitate reuse of lighting equipment, and to avoid the unnecessary recycling of surplus new lighting. Recolight’s commitment to the circular economy and to protecting the environment are key drivers for its new members: “For Trilux, there can only be one answer to the global challenge of climate change: sustainable management and continuous improvement. Recolight share our vision and hence are our preferred
WEEE partner,” said Wissam Choucair, Commercial Director at TRILUX Lighting.
Nicola Marques, Marketing Director at C.U. Lighting commented: “Sustainability is very important to CU Phosco Lighting. We are confident that working with Recolight will help us to further minimise our environmental impact.”
“The environmental credentials of all our suppliers is important to Urbis Schreder, so one of the reasons we chose to move our WEEE compliance to Recolight was their public commitment to achieving net zero by 2030,” said Kate Pickard, Marketing Communications Manager at Urbis Schreder.
“At OrangeTek we are working hard to implement circular economy principles, and being part of the Recolight scheme will help us achieve those goals,” said Wilbur Tarn, Director at OrangeTek.
