Luxo & The Environment
Our luminaires are designed to last a long time and therefore require energy-efficient solutions. Luxo, as part of the Glamox Group, contributes to the improvement of the environment by delivering good products that save energy for the end user.
As much as 90 percent of a luminaire’s impact on the environment derives from the energy consumed, whereas production, transport and recovery account for a mere 10 percent. That is why we are determined to be a forerunner in the development of the best solutions: Better lightsources, efficient reflectors, new optics and modern control systems make for good luminaires that save energy when the products are in use.
Our goal is to produce energy-efficient products using energy-efficient lightsources, 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
Luxo 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.
