SUSTAINABILITY and The Lighting Industry

SUSTAINABILITY and The Lighting Industry

SUSTAINABILITY: AN OVERVIEW SUSTAINABILITY: THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY SUSTAINABILITY: THE UK LIGHTING INDUSTRY

They seek it here, They seek it there ...

Yesterday, upon the stair, I met a man who wasn't there. He wasn't there again today, I wish, I wish he'd go away...

“Sustainable development meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” The Brundtland Commission: World Commission on Environment and Development 1987

But What Does It Mean In Practice?

RAY ANDERSON came up with the idea of climbing MOUNT SUSTAINABILITY as a description for what this adventure would be like Ray Anderson (1934 – 2011): founder of Interface Inc.

At the moment, most of us are here, WANDERING around in the foothills Low energy Response to outputs (products) global problem Ends justify any means Climbing Mount Sustainability

And a few have already got the hint that there’s SOMETHING a bit bigger going on Recycled materials / waste reduction Low energy outputs (products) Response to global problem Ends justify any means Growing awareness of resource limits Escalating costs of raw materials Climbing Mount Sustainability

The sea-change starts in the COMPANY, with senior management The Company Recycled materials / waste reduction Low energy outputs (products) Response to global problem Ends justify any means Growing awareness of resource limits Escalating costs of raw materials Grow awareness amongst staff Trained staff make efficient industry Climbing Mount Sustainability

Then the Company reaches out to meet those CUSTOMERS demanding change The Market The Company Recycled materials / waste reduction Low energy outputs (products) Response to global problem Ends justify any means Growing awareness of resource limits Escalating costs of raw materials Grow awareness amongst staff Trained staff make efficient industry Fair and transparent competitive practices A robust marketplace exposes ‘greenwash’ practices Climbing Mount Sustainability

And before we knows what’s happened, there’s an entire COMMUNITY on board Community The Market The Company Recycled materials / waste reduction Low energy outputs (products) Response to global problem Ends justify any means Growing awareness of resource limits Escalating costs of raw materials Grow awareness amongst staff Trained staff make efficient industry Fair and transparent competitive practices A robust marketplace targets ‘greenwash’ practices Outreach into the local area, based on company experience Awareness moves out from the company into the home Climbing Mount Sustainability

World Community The Market The Company Recycled materials / waste reduction Low energy outputs (products) Response to global problem Ends justify any means Growing awareness of resource limits Escalating costs of raw materials Grow awareness amongst staff Trained staff make efficient industry Fair and transparent competitive practices A robust marketplace targets ‘greenwash’ practices Outreach into the local area, based on company experience Awareness moves out from the company into the home Reduction in resource extraction and spoilage Sustainability ‘drivers’ reach critical mass – paradigm shift Climbing Mount Sustainability

YES - But What Does It Mean In Practice?

‘Organisations around the world, and their stakeholders, are becoming increasingly aware of the need for and benefits of socially responsible behaviour. The objective of social responsibility is to contribute to sustainable development.’

‘ISO:26000 is being, and should be taken, seriously. It is a powerful statement of the moral and practical issues facing companies and other organisations. Adrian Henriques: chair of the UK Committee on ISO:26000

Fair Operating Practices

Community Involvement Development

Sustainable Practice has also introduced us to the principle of The Triple Bottom Line

Let’s look briefly about The Triple Bottom Line

And so Sustainability Became Corporate Social Responsibility

OR

- to some people Sustainability Became Corporate SOCIALIST Responsibility

Time to make our excuses and leave ? ? ?

Dame Ellen MacArthur and The Circular Economy

The Circular Economy is not a new idea – its where it all started

The World Economic Forum, Davos: 2014 Several chief executives in Davos were keen to show that THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY is not about corporate social responsibility. McKinsey managing director Dominic Barton says "We have to demonstrate this is a win win, that you can make money and help use resources more sustainably," he said. "This is not CSR or a sideshow, but is fundamental.

SO: for now, SUSTAINABILITY = THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

But does any of this matter?

Recent research commissioned by The Chartered Institute of Marketing indicates that more than 75% of marketers believe that a company’s sustainability practices will increasingly affect customers buying decisions. Chartered Institute of Marketing: ‘Shape the Agenda’ 2007

What is the UK construction industry response to all of this? Let’s talk: SUPPLY CHAIN

… specifying sustainability measures during the building’s design and procurement stage can result in cost savings over the operational life of the building for little or no additional upfront cost.

But where is the UK lighting industry in all of this?

Houston – we have a problem

ITS COMPLEX . . . and that’s THE problem

What are the major Sustainability issues for the UK lighting industry as we move into an LED operating environment?

Energy Management

William Jevons Energy Management and The Jevons Paradox

Energy Management

Energy Management Some interesting data is presented (Fouquet and Pearson, 2006) which shows how the huge improvements in the lighting efficiency and the cost of lighting have driven demand ever higher, which of course raises the issue as to what happens as very efficient LED lighting becomes widely available.

So what happens next? What can we do?

We can get involved and start asking some questions.

Environmental Product Declarations and Life Cycle Assessments

To meet the ambitions of our clients and project partners, the minimum that we should require from manufacturers are Life Cycle Assessments of their products.

Can we create a level playing field - a slingshot moment?

and we can also get involved …
