    The EU is convinced of the many benefits of LED and is putting them in the spotlight: With the implementation of the EU Ecodesign Regulation on September 1st, 2021, EU countries will phase out numerous conventional light sources to switch to more environmentally friendly, energy efficient lighting.

    Two new regulations for more sustainabilty


    As of September 2021, the EU will implement two updated regulations:  the Ecodesign Regulation (SLR) and the Energy Labelling Regulation (ELR). Both have the goal of further expanding the lighting industry’s lead in sustainability by delivering significant energy savings for lighting products and systems.
