Today’s UK/European lighting business would not survive without supplies from ‘the developing world’ – but the problem of verifying the ethical audits of factories is contentious, and has recently been highlighted in the press, including The Guardian.
So how do we go about producing a credible system of certification for companies committed to sustainable management, design and production ?
I ain’t got an answer but I’d love to hear from anyone with ideas or experience as to how the situation could be addressed.

I have just read the article on ‘How to light a home to Part L1’. In fact, you don’t need to hide all the energy- saving lighting, as Franklite has proved by lighting the Green House for Huntingdonshire District Council.

Energy in lighting is going to be a big topic for the next few years. It is going to be important that the industry pulls together in a coherent manner to produce sustainable lighting schemes by default whilst allowing good and innovative design to be brought to the fore. This is achievable and design compromise can be avoided.
