WIN a £200 Experience Voucher Courtesy of Ovia

The UK generated 40.4 million tonnes of commercial and industrial waste in 2020. The EU estimates (2023) that member states produce more than 2.2 billion tonnes of total waste every year.

The current model of product development is ‘linear’; that is, ‘Raw materials – Design – Production – Distribution – Consumption – Collection – Waste Management/Landfill’, or simplified to ‘Take, Make, Use, Shred/Landfill’. It is this model that has raised the amount of electronic waste to unsustainable levels.

The circular economy is a model of production and consumption which places the emphasis on, ‘…sharing, leasing, reusing, repairing, refurbishing and recycling existing materials and products for as long as possible’.

TM66: 2021 Creating a circular economy in the lighting industry, published by CIBSE (Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers) ‘…sets out what designing and manufacturing to comply with circular economy principles entails, and it includes a checklist, a method of assessing a product’s circular economy performance, and real-world examples of good practice.’

TM66 provides practical guidance to all elements of the lighting industry, including clients, manufacturers, specifiers, wholesalers, designers and the like in how they might better take account of all the factors which impact upon the use, re-use and re-make of lighting products.

Ovia is committed to improving its circular economy for its lighting products and is working towards making sure all of its Inceptor luminaires meet the requirements of the TM66 Assured Product Verification Scheme.
