‘We consider sustainability to be a driver of growth and an integral part of the Philips DNA,’ said Philips Lighting chief Rudy Provoost. ‘By doubling our investment in green innovation by 2015, we re-confirm our ambition to deliver meaningful and sustainable solutions.’ The company pointed to its 12W EnduraLED lamp, a replacement for the 60W GLS, as an example of green innovation.
