Announcing Net Zero Lighting Conference

How to sustainably manufacture lighting equipment

Organised by The LIA and Recolight held at 15 Hatfields Conference Centre, London, Thursday 2nd May 2024.

The LIA and Recolight are delighted to be collaborating on the Net Zero Lighting Conference 2024, taking place on 2nd May in London. The agenda highlights net zero focused manufacturing practices within the lighting industry which covers: strategy, materials, energy, packaging, and best practice delivered from a variety of key players and experts in the industry.

The day will kick off with a welcome from Ayça Donaghy, CEO of The Lighting Industry Association, followed by an assessment of lessons learned and successes in minimising carbon footprint in their own organisation by Nigel Harvey, CEO of Recolight.

The conference places emphasis on the practical steps that lighting manufacturers can take to reduce the carbon emissions of all parts of their operations to contribute to the low carbon economy. The two organisations have come together to organise this conference in recognition of the vital importance of this topic to our industry, drawing upon their combined expertise.

Commenting on the news Ayça Donaghy, The LIA CEO said "The LIA are pleased to announce our collaboration with Recolight as we collectively drive the industry to achieve Net Zero. The move to a net zero economy is no longer an option, it is an imperative. Specifiers and customers are increasingly demanding substantiated proof of green claims, be they embodied carbon, circular economy capability or wider life cycle assessment. Governments will not be far behind. Manufacturers need clear routes to follow, expert help and cross industry coordination. Now is the time to move from speeches to action, where auditing carbon becomes as second nature and as comparable as our audited financial accounts. What you can measure you can manage. Net zero is our responsibility."

And Nigel Harvey, Recolight CEO added "2023 was the hottest year ever recorded – we all know that the climate crisis is the defining issue of our generation. Every organisation needs to be working towards net zero. But the challenge is significant. Recolight are delighted to team up with the LIA to help our industry get to grips with this vitally important task."
By joining forces on this issue, the LIA and Recolight will help the members of both organisations and the wider industry as they seek to fully decarbonise.

We invite the lighting manufacturing industry to join us at the Net Zero Lighting Conference 2024 for a day of learning and practical strategies to push the lighting industry towards a sustainable and environmentally conscious future.
