A new series of workshops on how to calculate circular and carbon metrics for lighting products has been announced by circular lighting expert Recolight. The educational event explores the latest guidelines, standards, and legislation, Life Cycle Assessments and associated metrics.
The focus is on practical delivery of TM66 and TM65. Delegates will learn:
• How TM66 and TM65 combine to validate the circular and embodied carbon content of products already designed.
• And how these metrics can be used in future developments to better inform circular decision making in the design phase of the project.
Hosted by lighting product designer, Simon Fisher of F Mark, the CPD-accredited events also look at the approaches and techniques to creating lights with long use, repair and upgradeability built in.
Fisher estimates that 80 per cent of a light fitting’s environmental impact is determined at the design phase. He says: ’To quote [environmentalist] Ellen MacArthur, “waste is a design flaw; In nature it doesn’t exist”’.
The workshops are intended for technical managers, design and engineering managers, quality managers, compliance engineers, sustainability managers, marketing managers, product managers, and any others that influence product design. They are a roundtable environment with a maximum of 12 delegates, giving the opportunity for full interaction, feedback, and questions for each topic. Places are available for Wednesday 21 June, in London, with more dates to be announced.
