As part of our overarching company vision, we have already made great strides in minimizing our impact on the environment. We have reduced our carbon footprint by 42% since 2007, and now we are taking the next steps. As part of our new sustainability program, ”Brighter Lives, Better World”, Philips Lighting is committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2020. This commitment to carbon neutrality includes combustion in operations, purchased electricity, logistics and business travel1.
We declared our intention to become carbon neutral at the UN Climate Change Conference COP21 in late 2015.
