Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s Lighting for Health & Wellbeing newsletter for March 20, 2023. In a past issue, I promised we would expand our mix of health and wellbeing content to include the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) efforts influencing business strategies, product development, and design practices. The current edition of this newsletter is off to a good start, if I do say so myself. 😉

You’ll find an inspiring and thoughtful case study on a lighting design for a special-needs school environment; tough questions on whether the UV-C LED market has missed its opportunity with disinfection technology; and a deep dive with a large lighting company executive on modernizing the organization with professional development, streamlining manufacturing operations, and meeting objectives on its path to greater ESG accountability in products and business.

Please stay in touch about content we publish and to propose contributed articles. Also, please let me know if your organization has begun working on ESG plans and goals – at any scale. What is most critical to your business success? Please share your progress and your challenges.
