We select ultra-efficient drivers, controllers and electronics with the highest power factor as possible to ensure as much energy that is expended is used on light output.
The EU legislation restricting the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC) has been our foundation from the beginning.
In addition to the EU WEEE Directive (2012/19/EU) which sets guidelines for distributors, where possible, and in coalition with our partners, we further develop the program.
From concept to development to production, we strive to be responsibly austere in both energy consumption and material expenditure. REDUCE helps us to reuse and recycle.
*Stats from 2007 until June, 2016
We calculate this running total by dividing all products we ship into their wattage consumption. An 8 watt bulb is worth 8 and a 250 watt high bay is worth 250. As the efficiency of our products rises, this number lowers per product.
Contemporary lighting (sometimes referred to as 'strike' lighting as something is burned to produce light) such as incandescent, fluorescent and metal halides burn anywhere from 2 to 10 times the amount of energy LED requires for the same amount of light.

Below are some costs (in USD cents) from different countries at the top and bottom of the scale of worldwide energy pricing in 2015.
Averaged from all recorded data in 2015.
Energy production by source
Average % home energy lighting bill
Average % industrial lighting usage (of total produced)
Average % public lighting usage (of total produced)
