Lighting for a
a fixed monthly fee for lighting. We do not have to worry about management and maintenance, we’ll benefit from innovations that occur in the meantime, and we will have maximum peace of mind.”
- Bart Sijben, Operational Manager, Bruynzeel Storage
Bruynzeel wanted to focus on their core business rather than the ownership and management of their lighting infrastructure. The company wanted a new level of control over energy use for lighting, as well as an end-to-end solution that would give them the ability to maximize recycling in line with their circular economy business agenda.
We were inspired by architect Thomas Rau to create a circular lighting solution. Rau established Turntoo, a separate business to support our "Light as a service (LaaS)" model, to preserve resources by giving a residual value to all lighting materials and components. Together, our team and Turntoo provide end-to-end management and maintenance of the new, budget-neutral lighting system. Bruynzeel now has a greater degree of energy efficiency and control over their lighting infrastructure, as well as guaranteed reuse of the maximum number of lighting components.
We helped Bruynzeel reduce energy costs by 73% and improved working conditions for employees. The company reduced Bruynzeel’s carbon footprint by 231 tons of CO2, minimized maintenance, and allowed the company to focus solely on its business.
A circular economy uses resources more effectively by creating rather than wasting, using rather than owning, and reusing rather than disposing.
