Powering our Lyngard factory in the UK

Sustainable energy

Power for the factory and our kilns comes from electricity. The first step was to change how we are powered as a business.

We switched our supply to SSE Green Electricity.

This means that, as of May 24, 2024, the Lyngard factory's power is 100% generated by wind and hydro assets, matched annually to Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs), enabling zero-emission reporting.

Circularity of products

At Lyngard, our journey toward sustainability and environmental stewardship is more than just a commitment; it's a driving force behind everything we do. After becoming carbon literate, we recognized the importance of continually improving the manufacturing and design processes of our products. We are excited to share the steps we've taken and the progress we've made in embedding sustainability into the core of our operations.

Step 1: Embracing the Circular Economy

Our first major step was attending a circular economy course with the Lighting Industry Association. This comprehensive training provided us with deep insights into the challenges we face in transitioning to a circular economy and the strategies to overcome them. The course was instrumental in helping us understand the importance of designing products that minimize waste, maximize resource efficiency, and extend product life cycles.

Step 2: Measuring Our Progress

With newfound knowledge, our next step was to measure how Lyngard products align with circular economy principles. This involved a thorough evaluation of our manufacturing processes, product designs, and overall sustainability practices. Understanding our current position was crucial in identifying areas for improvement and setting ambitious, achievable goals.

Step 3: Achieving TM66 Certification

We are proud to announce that our dedication to sustainable manufacturing has been recognized through the TM66 certification. This certification is a benchmark in the lighting industry, assessing the circularity of products or product groups. The focus is on product longevity, ease of repair, and the ability to remanufacture parts. Achieving TM66 certification involved rigorous scrutiny of our products' life cycle and their impact on the environment.
