May 10, 2022

Lumileds issued its 2021 Sustainability Report today detailing the company’s progress in supporting the transition to a low-carbon and sustainable economy. In the report, Lumileds highlights how its lighting solutions contribute to positive changes in energy usage, safety, and health and well-being. Lumileds follows a formalized sustainability agenda that identifies specific priorities and tracks progress.

Lumileds sustainability efforts are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the company has identified four SDGs where the most significant contribution can be made: Good Health and Well-Being, Affordable and Clean Energy, Responsible Consumption and Production, and Climate Action.

Lumileds is committed to taking urgent action to combat climate change by developing energy-efficient LED lighting solutions and through its ongoing commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in its operations. In 2021, the company averted 8.60 million metric tons of use-phase Carbon Dioxide (CO2) through its LED products.

Lumileds also reports a significant step forward towards fulfilling its strategic initiative to completely transition to electricity from renewable energy sources. Operations in Malaysia fully transitioned to 100% renewable electricity and operations in the United States transitioned to at least 40% renewable energy. This allows the company to reduce its Scope 1 and Scope 2 Carbon Footprint with more than 40%.

“Despite ongoing challenges associated with COVID-19 and other disruptive global events, the urgent need to accelerate decarbonization across the world has been top of mind,” said Matt Roney, CEO. “As such, we are unwaveringly committed to reaching our sustainability goals, motivated by the 1.5 degree warming scenario boundary. Our scientists and engineers continue to increase product performance while achieving significant reductions in energy use, carbon emissions, and water consumption.”

Lumileds also highlights how new microLED technology can further support carbon footprint reduction through energy efficient applications and enhance safety in automotive lighting applications. In the area of vehicle safety, the report covers the road-legal approval for LED retrofit light sources in Korea, Germany, Austria, and France, bringing the safety benefits of LED lighting to new cars and, importantly, to cars already on the road.

Other highlights covered in the report include safety awards for Lumileds’ manufacturing sites in Poland and Malaysia, underlining health and safety as Lumileds’ highest priority.
