Lumileds has released its 2020 Sustainability Report that details 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, supporting the company’s commitment to making the world safer, more sustainable, and beautiful with light. In 2020, the company averted 6.42 million metric tons of use-phase CO2 through its LED products. Lumileds follows a formalized sustainability agenda that identifies specific priorities and tracks progress.

Lumileds has aligned its sustainability efforts with external frameworks such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 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’ Climate Action and environmental results in 2020 were significant with reductions of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Energy Consumed, Waste Produced, and Water Used.

“Despite the challenges of a global pandemic and its impact on the end markets we serve, Lumileds remained committed and on track toward reaching our sustainability goals,” said Matt Roney, CEO. “Our scientists and engineers continued to increase product performance while achieving significant reductions in energy use, carbon emissions, waste generated, and water consumption.”

An intrinsic part of Lumileds’ mission is its commitment to a safe workplace with diversity and inclusion as core values. Employee Health and Safety remains the highest priority. In 2020 all Lumileds’ manufacturing sites were migrated and certified from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001 as the basis for its Occupational Health and Safety Management System.

Lumileds recently reviewed its environmental, social, and governance issues that have the greatest impact on its business and the highest importance to its stakeholders. From that effort, nine priority issues form the focus of Lumileds’ sustainability efforts. Those are:

Employee Health and Safety

Product Energy Efficiency

Circular Economy

Business Ethics

Responsible Supply Chain

Hazardous Substances

Employee Engagement and Workforce Diversity

Improving Vehicle and Road Safety

Climate Change and Carbon Footprint
