Recolight announces new Circular Economy webinar series

(UK)- Series will begin with session on luminaire design on 30 March.

Recolight has announced a new series of webinars dedicated to the Circular Economy for 2021. The series will build on previous talks held in 2020, and will highlight the progress that has been made in the lighting industry.

All webinars will be chaired by Ray Molony, who said: “It is vital that the industry continues this conversation if it is to address its responsibility to the wider world. For too long the sector has been a rule-taker. These webinars are helping us come up with a strategy that’s built from the bottom up.”

The first three webinars in the series are:

  • Luminaire Design: The Circular Economy regulations you need to know – 30 March
  • Return of the Lamp: How the replaceable revolution will change lighting – 29 April
  • How to get Net Zero: A lighting manufacturer’s guide to becoming carbon neutral – 27 May

The Recolight webinar series in 2020 examined the Circular Economy for lighting. Discussions ranged from new regulations for lighting, through to extending the life of luminaires.

A range of lighting producers, specifiers, and designers presented positive initiatives being undertaken to reduce the impact on the environment. One of the topics still up for debate is whether the return of replaceable light sources, drivers and other components is the best route to a Circular Economy in the lighting industry.

Recolight CEO Nigel Harvey added: “I’m encouraged to see the lighting industry taking steps to become more sustainable. It is a given that we produce light sources that are very energy efficient.  Moving beyond that and adopting circular economy principles in how we manufacture those products will soon be a must do, and not just an ought to do.”

All sessions are free to join, with more events to be announced for later in the year.
