Sustainability

Digital LED lighting still represents the most deliverable low carbon building service in both retrofit and new build. It is a key technology in delivering government sustainability policy and achieving Net Zero targets.

Lighting sustainability is more than just energy efficiency, we need to understand and mitigate the environmental impacts through life from cradle to cradle. This brings topics such as embodied carbon, circular economy, persistent organic pollutants, critical raw materials, repairability, durability and green supply chain management.

Sustainability brings a new language, new acronyms, and a new set of metrics. We communicate and train members at every step of their sustainability journey.

CIBSE LIA TM66 Assured Product Verification Scheme:

By participating in the Scheme, lighting manufacturers can have their circularity claims independently verified. This verification process ensures the accuracy, objectivity, and consistency of the ratings provided by manufacturers for their luminaires.

CIBSE Endorsed TM66 Training:

The course sets circular economy in general and specifically TM66 and CEAM into the wider space of sustainability, including Life Cycle Assessments and Net Zero, giving an in depth understanding of the delivery, practice and communication of sustainability in building services.

Module 1 - The course sets circular economy in general and specifically TM66 and CEAM into the wider space of sustainability, including Life Cycle Assessments and Net Zero, giving an in depth understanding of the delivery, practice and communication of sustainability in building services.

Module 2 - This course briefly refreshes your knowledge of Module 1, before becoming an online interactive workshop session running a notional luminaire through TM66’s Circular Economy Assessment Method.
