Lighting Control for a more Sustainable World

The trend for boosting a building’s eco-credentials is on the rise. Learn how Casambi can play its part.

In a world of constant change, the concept of sustainability is increasingly incorporated into our daily lives. And not least into construction projects – where exciting new approaches to green building design and refurbishments aim to reduce environmental impact and gain alignment with the UN’s  Sustainable Development Goals. A building is no longer simply a structure prepared for human activities, but also a place designed to optimize space and material use while actively improving its occupants’ health and well-being. 

Green building rating tools are increasingly used to assess and recognize buildings that meet certain standards. Assessment programs like LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), and WELL (WELL Building Standard) – to name but a few – help buildings guarantee their environmental, social, and economic sustainability performance. Each certification system has its own requirements and assessment criteria, but all consider energy savings and lighting.  

Did you know that Casambi can play its part in helping you to achieve credits? Our wireless lighting control solution not only enables energy saving but also confers social benefits by improving visual comfort and personal safety. 

Here’s a lowdown of some sustainable lighting strategies to which Casambi can contribute: 

Energy efficiency is but one facet of sustainability. Other benefits must be thrown into the mix to make a truly positive impact on the world – from helping to protect natural resources, consuming fewer materials, contributing to lowering greenhouse gases emissions, developing environments that enhance the well-being of people in both the short and long terms, and reducing operational and maintenance costs. Casambi is proud to play its part in enabling a sustainable future.
