The adoption of LED lighting has tremendous environmental benefits for its reduced energy use, yet the environmental impact of lighting extends beyond energy use – from the materials used to create a lighting product, to how a product is manufactured, operated, and maintained, to disposal or re-use at end-of-life. This webinar will provide a holistic view of the environmental impacts of LED lighting across its full life cycle, including embodied carbon and emissions, hazardous material concerns, and depletion of resources. Attendees will learn about methods, tools, and resources they can use to develop and support a more sustainable and circular lighting economy.
Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
