- André van den Berg, Executive Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer Schiphol Group
Schiphol is one of the sustainable airports in the world. The airport has made it a top priority to reduce energy consumption and continuously looks for ways to build sustainably. All of these efforts serve a single goal: to become the most sustainable airport in the world. When Schiphol decided to remodel Lounge 2 they saw a huge opportunity for making further progress in this direction with sustainable LED lighting.
The right lighting
The Philips Circular lighting solution was the best option. The principle is simple: instead of buying a luminaire, you buy light. This incentivizes Philips Lighting to manufacture high-quality, sustainable lighting systems, which are modular in design and fully repairable. When the contract period has expired, the customer can choose to extend the contract with upgrading the existing lighting or opt for new lighting. Luminaires can be returned to Philips Lighting for reuse or recycling. The specially developed sustainable Philips luminaires, which hang in an attractive pattern in the transfer hall above the passenger’ heads, comply with the stringent requirements of the circular economy concept. These luminaires have been specifically designed to allow fast and easy repair or replacement.
