Our luminaires have long lives. This requires energy efficient solutions. Glamox contributes to the improvement of the environment by delivering good products that save energy for the end user.
As much as 90 per cent of a luminaire’s impact on the environment derives from the energy consumed, whereas production, transport and recovery account for a mere 10 per cent. That is why we are determined to be a forerunner in the development of the best solutions: Better light sources, efficient reflectors, new optics and modern control systems make for good luminaires that save energy when the products are in use.Environmental policy
Our goal is to produce energy-efficient products using energy-efficient light sources, manufactured through energy-efficient and environmental-friendly processes. Several of our production units hold the ISO 14001 environmental approval. Our environmental routines are integrated in our quality systems.
The most important environmental aspects of our operations are:
- Energy consumption related to the end user’s use of our luminaires
- Product lifetime, choice of materials and recyclability of products
- Consumption of energy and materials in product manufacture
- Transport of raw materials, semi-finished goods and finished products
- Waste from operations
Glamox satisfies the RoHS Directive (Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment
) which aims to restrict the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. We do so through careful choice of electric components and suppliers.
Our products satisfy the WEEE Directive (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
) which requires products to be developed and designed to facilitate materials or energy recovery.
