The world’s most influential companies hold the key to millions of dollars in untapped energy savings, The Climate Group said today (July 6, 2018), as the global not-for-profit launched a new call to action to the private sector to fast-track the uptake of connected LED lighting worldwide.

Representing up to a third of global energy demand, buildings are a key target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Installing LED lighting is the easiest, most immediate action a company can take to lower its carbon footprint and significantly reduce its energy costs.

According to Signify (formerly Philips Lighting), a world leader in connected LED lighting, a global switch to LEDs across the private sector could generate US$94 billion in cost savings while avoiding 403 million tons of CO2emissions. That’s equivalent to taking roughly 265 million cars off the road for a year.
