Reducing energy consumption is a vital part of achieving the carbon footprint reduction targets set out in The Planet Mark sustainability certification. One effective way to do this is through efficient lighting.

Planet Mark certified business Fagerhult create environmentally friendly lighting solutions for public spaces; indoors and outdoors, from offices to hospitals. Now they have gone a step further and created the Fagerhult Life Cycle Cost Calculator.

This tool has been specially designed for those of you looking at new lighting options, to compare solutions based on cost and carbon savings. Simply, the calculator forecasts energy and carbon savings from energy efficient lighting upgrades, meaning that you can find the solution that fits your needs the best.

Furthermore, this calculator has achieved The Planet Mark Certification for Services which includes verification of the methodology, calculations and reporting within the Fagerhult Life Cycle Cost calculator. Tony Browne, Managing Director of Fagerhult Lighting commented

“As a lighting manufacturer the greatest contribution we can make towards a sustainable built environment is to produce luminaires which use the least amount of energy while still providing the right light levels for the activities being undertaken.

Thanks to the emergence of LED technology the opportunities for energy efficient lighting is every increasing. However we have to be realistic. Capital costs and payback are major considerations for our customers and we wanted a way of demonstrating this accurately at an early stage.

Thanks to our Planet Mark certification we can now do this with total confidence that the solutions we propose will offer the savings we promise, peace of mind for both our customers and us.”
