What is Circular Economy?From a Linear to a Circular lifestyle
For many years, people have been living a linear lifestyle, where raw material is being extracted, produces, consumed and thrown away. Many resources get lost, and our planet’s resources is getting smaller over time. Therefore, we need to think different to secure the future of our common raw materials.
Circular economy is the answer! Circular economy is a sustain-
able and responsible model, where products are innovative and able to be recycled in an eternal cycle, where no resources are lost and materials keep their value. The concept is also called “cradle-to-cradle” and the visions are clear; products designed with circular economy are going to have a positive effect on the environment, people and our economy.
We need to end our linear production pattern and work determined to create products within a circular economy model. We succeed with this by creating products with a long lifespan that can be upgraded when needed and by using few materials that can be recycled for new products.
Circular Economy & ECOLITEA sustainable circuit
As a supplier of LED-lighting, sustainability has always been a part of our DNA. We wish, in cooperation with our customers, to make a difference for the green development in Denmark, and the rest of the world in the long term. That’s why we have created ECOLITE, which is our first product with offset in circular economy. With ECOLITE, we want to create a new standard for lighting and not least to take our product range towards becoming even more sustainable.
Circular economy is not just about looking forward, but also to correctly remove or re-use previously used materials.
As a part of LITE’s circular strategy, we are helpful with the documented effect of the environmental initiatives, by changing traditional luminaires to ECOLITE. Together with our business partner, we ensure you that the old luminaires will be correctly disassembled and re-used. Besides this our product is built with few components so that it’s easy to separate. The thought behind this is that all components, one by one, can be swapped or repaired if anything breaks. Defect components are being sent to recycling, to be re-used into a new value chain.
