Environmental management at LEDVANCE includes the sustainable use of energy, water, waste and chemicals as well as the monitoring of emissions. In addition, the environmentally conscious design and recycling of products play an important role.
For LEDVANCE, assuming social and corporate responsibility means protecting the environment, ensuring occupational health and safety, and preserving natural resources. Thus, we set up a corporate EHS policy and guidelines in order to integrate these issues into the overall management on a corporate-wide level.
To be able to assess the sustainability of our products we have set primary and secondary performance characteristics.
In order to continually monitor the degree of achievement of our objectives for environmental protection, data from all LEDVANCE plants is regularly collected and used to compile comprehensive reports.
Responsibility for environmental protection at LEDVANCE lies clearly with company management and is supervised by the EHS department which handles company-wide coordination and continued development. At individual plants, managers and their department heads are responsible for practical implementation. The plants receive support and advice from our environmental experts on energy, water, waste, chemicals and air pollution.
Sustainability plays an important role for us also in transport logistics because the combustion of fuel produces CO2 emissions. LEDVANCE records these CO2 emissions so that they can be minimized by making the most efficient use of transport facilities.
Avoiding waste and finding optimum waste disposal possibilities is very important to us when developing our products. We continuously strive to make our products as recyclable as possible.
We use a scientific method to assess the environmental impact of our products – the life cycle analysis – considering all environmental aspects of a product throughout its entire life cycle.
