The aim is to save energy in all areas of production and administration and to increase energy efficiency. The use of renewable energies also plays a decisive role, according to a company report. Osram also wants to make its upstream and downstream supply chain even more energy-efficient.
“In line with our vision of 'Light for a better world', our energy-efficient products and solutions provide us with a great lever to drive climate protection forward,” explains Ingo Bank, CFO of Osram Licht AG. “The energy-efficient products and intelligent lighting control solutions are already helping Osram customers reduce their carbon dioxide emissions by five million tonnes a year.”
According to the United for Efficiency (U4E) initiative of the United Nations Environment Programme, a consistent global switch to energy-efficient lighting could reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 390 million tonnes per year and save consumers around 50 billion dollars in energy costs.
