Eliminating plastic from consumer packaging
Signify actively strives for a reduction in the environmental impact of its products and has now started eliminating all plastics from packaging for consumer-related products with the aim to be plastic-free in 2021. In Q3 2020 the new plastic-free packaging for LED lamps launched in Europe, removing over 500 metric tonnes of plastic waste per year. In total, the move to plastic-free consumer packaging will avoid the use of over 2.5 million kilos of plastic annually. In this presentation, we will share our approach, successes and struggles to find alternative materials and packaging redesign.
