Five years since announcing its commitment to Cop21 delegates in Paris, Signify has become 100% carbon neutral.

Signify has achieved this through renewable energy contracts, impact mitigation through reforestation and solar energy investments, and a comprehensive look at emissions from offices to the factory floor and beyond into supply & distribution chains.

“It’s a great reminder that growth and energy consumption need not go hand-in-hand,” said Harry Verhaar, Signify’s Head of Global Public and Government Affairs, adding “they can be decoupled, enabling socio-economic development while at the same time contributing to protecting our climate.”

They’ve done this as they’ve grown through accelerating the transition to low-energy LED light sources for residential and commercial use.
