As with all of us, Tamlite Lighting has a vested interest in promoting good sustainability practice within the company and the wider lighting industry. Tamlite is one of the largest privately-owned UK manufacturers, so we have a responsibility to ensure our processes, technologies and products are in line with our commitment to ensuring a healthy planet for all.
Tamlite Environmental offers a complete recycling service when carrying out lighting projects and upgrades. We are committed to reducing landfill waste through specialist recycling means, ensuring that previous luminaires and lamps are effectively recycled and brought back into the Circular Economy, or are responsibly disposed of if required.
With over 2 million tonnes of electrical waste discarded every year, the need for efficient recycling is clear. Tamlite Environmental, in partnership with EWRG, has safely recycled over 75 million lamps since 2000, and continues to provide an outstanding WEEE recovery service today.
We have only one planet, and it is critical that all of us take charge and do what we can to reduce our waste.
Recycling only goes so far. It is paramount that manufacturers and producers are more responsible, and design away non-essential plastic and other non-recyclable materials from their products and packaging, in order to reduce pollution in our rivers and oceans, as well as our reliance on landfill.
Tamlite has an experienced product design team, focused on creating luminaires that align with the principles of the Circular Economy.
The Ellen Macarthur Foundation, a leading figure within the Circular Economy, suggests that designing products with materials geared around longevity can reduce carbon emissions by over 40%.
Tamlite manufactures fittings that are built using quality materials, designed to ensure the internal components can be easily changed and maintained in situ.
It is critical that manufacturers, designers and specifiers all take it upon themselves to carry out the most sustainable processes possible when delivering lighting solutions.
