Sustainable Workspace: Reduce Your Environmental Footprint with LED lights

” The kind of impact you make on Earth will outlast its impact on you”.

The inception and further development of Earth day revolve around ideas of ‘conservation’, ‘preservation’ and ‘sustainability’. These blossomed the very moment saving the environment became everything but a pretentious fad. Communities, business organizations, in particular, shifted their focus from making an impact to become a driving force behind it. This approach brought in cleaner technologies, sustainable practices, and innovative developments into play. The core idea of businesses today is to no longer remain just a name but invoke inspiration among their employees as well as consumers.

It has successfully laid down the groundwork for businesses to not just advocate sustainability but also to implement it. Architectural changes were made, and office spaces were no longer confined to that burdensome vibe that employees wanted to get away from. It worked in favour of both business owners such as you and socially conscious employees. Businesses brought employee wellness at the workplace by employing energy efficient technologies, boosting employee morale, innovating and finally multiplying their revenue. Employees on their part got more productive, collaborative and broke away from the ‘shackled to desk’ mentality.

One of the biggest areas where you can reduce the environmental footprint of your business is through energy efficient lighting solutions. Work-spaces have thus begun to move away from the ‘why’ of being sustainable and are now focusing on its ‘how’.

 Here are a few ways how you can bring about better productivity, build better-bonded teams and inspire collaboration by energy efficient lighting.

LED lights: Emitting Energy Efficiency

LED lights use a semi-conductive diode to emit light differently from their counterparts. Simply put, free electrons give out light when current passes through them. Popular as ‘solid state’ lights, LED lights are the most sustainable lighting options for work-space future. Creating different lighting zones becomes a possibility for you as these lights offer different temperatures with their brightness. In addition to this, they are brighter, consume less power, have low wattage, last longer, have extended energy efficiency and can substantially reduce long term replacement costs.

Harnessing Daylight with LED lights

According to a study conducted at Cornell University, the presence of natural lighting reduced eyestrain among employees by 51%, drowsiness by 56% and headaches by 63%. Natural lighting is the most requested workplace amenity as employees connect it to high comfort and productivity. Your work-space can make the most of it in its design with large glass facades with the ability to regulate both heath and light. Complementing daylight with tactically placed LED lights and LED panel lights will better harness them both. This will cut down on your costs as well as improve productivity and create an ideal work environment.

Technologically enriched smart offices with LED lights

Cutting-edge technologies like the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence have instrumentally incorporated cleaner and more energy efficient businesses. Controlling temperatures, lighting and bringing in better workplace devices is how businesses are reducing their environmental footprint. The concept of a ‘smart office’ has become quite the reality today.  It is possible for you to leverage lighting technologies with motion sensors that map the entire workplace area, track activity and boost energy efficiency. LED lights by Havells have come to play a prime role in smart lighting technologies such as motion sensors, human-centric lights, security mapping, and smart sensors to make your work-spaces more energy efficient, productive and focused towards decreasing your environmental footprint.

A day that honors conservation and sustainability should do so in all walks of life. Your work-space can take a holistic approach to make a great statement with the least amount of environmental footprint. Channelising technologies with a holistic approach towards sustainability would help you not only create but also leave a better world for future generations.
