Green is not just a colour nowadays; it has become a policy, a way of life and one of the most rapidly developing sectors in the whole industry. Producing “green” – that is, ecologically friendly – products is demanded by clients, supported by markets and perceived as excellent way to improve company brands.
It is not just a hip trend that will slowly fade away. All the aspects of ecological production and consumption – energy efficiency, recyclability, longer lifetime of products – are becoming a major factor in cutting costs in the companies and households. Illumination is a field that allows for huge ecological advancements, usually by replacing lamps, employing sensors that decrease illumination according to amount of daylight and using a plethora of other new technologies.
Chief ecological advance in illumination industry is the current rise of LED technology: it does not contain toxic metals, is extremely efficient and very flexible.
