The Lumileds’ report entails how its lighting solutions are contributing to positive changes in energy usage, safety, and health and wellness, supporting the company’s commitment to making the world safer, better and more beautiful with light.

Lumileds follows a formalized sustainability agenda that identifies specific priorities and tracks progress. For example, in its global LED and automotive lighting operations, the company recently surpassed its 2020 operational goals relative to 2015 including:

  • 41% reduction in emissions (20% goal)
  • 25% reduction in energy consumption (20% goal)
  • 25% reduction in water usage (20% goal)

The sustainability objectives are based on creating value for customers through sustainable innovations, reducing the environmental footprint of the company’s operations, driving improvements in the supply chain toward compliance with the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and preventing injuries.

Lumileds has aligned its sustainability efforts with external frameworks such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and identified four SDGs to which it can make the most significant contribution: climate action, good health and well-being, affordable and clean energy, and responsible consumption and production.

Lumileds’ development of energy-efficient, low-carbon LED lighting technologies supports urgent action to combat climate change. An IHS market analysis estimated that Lumileds LEDs reduced total carbon dioxide equivalent emissions of lighting globally by 39 million metric tons – equivalent to shutting down 11 coal-fired power plants in the United States.

Further, by the end of this year, all Lumileds facilities worldwide will be ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 certified. Lumileds also certified against the International Automotive Quality Management Systems standards – IATF16949:2016, which outlines the requirements on designing, developing, manufacturing, installing and servicing automotive products.

Lumileds is promoting good health and well-being with innovations like the VisionPlus headlamps for automobiles which increase road visibility by 60%, alongside, the company is also developing light source technology for digital lighting, which can enable next-generation high resolution headlighting systems as well as further improving the seeing, sensing and being seen functions of automated driving systems—all of which help to increase road safety and driver comfort.
