Sustainability

Ceravision's products comply with EU and EC directives regarding the use of hazardous materials in electrical and electronic products (RoHS) and the use of materials permitted under the initiative to provide a high level of protection for human health and the environment from chemicals (REACH).

The products satisfy EC regulations 245/2009 and 347/2010 defining the eco-design requirements for tertiary sector lighting products.

Lamp design, electronic control gear, reflector design and lighting controls all contribute to the overall efficiency and effectiveness of a lighting system. Ceravision's small source size, very high lamp lumen maintenance factors (LLMF) and luminaire light output ratios (LOR) combined with a wireless lighting control system, all provide the end user with schemes that have low environmental impact and low total cost of ownership.

The components and processes used in Ceravision's products are selected to minimise the impact on the environment. Of the materials making a typical luminaire, more than 80% can be recycled. The product can be readily disassembled so that materials can be re-used and recycled.

Ceravision's products comply with the applicable international standards, enabling lighting schemes to be designed to satisfy the appropriate standards. Our designers encourage clients to make as much use of daylight as reasonably practicable.

To comply with the WEEE Directive and the UK WEEE regulations, Ceravision is registered with a producer compliance scheme.

Ceravision plays a full and active role in lighting industry bodies. The company and its staff are, for example, members of the Lighting Industry Association (UK) and the Commission Internationalé de l'Éclairage (CIE). Ceravision is represented on several technical committees involved in defining the future standards and codes of practice for the lighting industry.
