Simon Reed, CEO (EMEA), Feilo Sylvania comments on the announcement

“With imminent changes such as the SLR legislation for lamps and luminaires sold in the UK and the European Union, it is those who best understand and act with speed and compliance that will ensure a safe environment for the consumer and also gain the greatest commercial benefit. LightingEurope will continue to help members like Sylvania to gain an advantage on trends and regulatory knowledge. In addition, emerging opportunities, such as UV-C lamps and luminaires that can offer germicidal benefits, are an example of where Sylvania, with its seven decades in germicidal knowledge, can educate and inform members and the market on how this technology can benefit us all. We will continue helping businesses and consumers to realise best lighting practices and support the challenging post-Covid economy through more efficient lighting, smart controls, and supporting the shift to 'work from home' and hybrid working practices with best-in-class lighting solutions.”

“We are very happy to welcome Sylvania back to LightingEurope,” states Ourania Georgoutsakou, Secretary General of LightingEurope. “As a global player with outstanding technical competence both in general lighting and in special applications, Sylvania will help drive our strategy for the EU lighting industry to accelerate the uptake of good lighting and UV-C disinfection technologies and to move EU renovation policies beyond energy efficiency.”
