As a business we are committed to reducing our own carbon footprint and to working with our clients to reduce theirs. Switching to LED lighting can reduce impact on the environment, help to achieve carbon reduction commitments and improve the working environment. As LED lighting is more energy efficient, cost-effective and durable than existing standard filament, halogen and fluorescent strip lights it can also produce significant energy, cost and CO2 savings.
Switching to LED makes commercial sense
Lighting accounts for a significant percentage electricity consumption at most commercial premises. Switching to LED lighting can yield a saving of between 60% and 90% of lighting costs, quickly recouping the necessary investment. Migrating commercial lighting to LED lighting can reduce maintenance costs – LED lights on average last 50 000 hours – 42 000 hours more than traditional bulbs – which speeds up pay back.
Examples of real savings that have been achieved at our own premises and for some of our clients.

Switch to LED for happy tenants
In terms of keeping tenants happy, LED lighting produces more natural warm light than traditional lighting and less noise and heat. Commercially switching makes sense and everyone wins.
