Philips Lighting’s 2020 carbon neutral commitment

"Everyone at Philips Lighting is enthusiastic to play their part in making our company as sustainable as possible.


We're well on our way to becoming carbon neutral in all our operations by 2020, saving energy in factories and offices, optimizing our logistics and supply chain, and reducing business travel.


We've already reduced our carbon footprint by 54% since 2007 and increased our use of renewables globally to 67%. By showing leadership on our journey to carbon neutrality, our employees are becoming ambassadors for sustainability."


Nicola Kimm, Head of Sustainability, Environment, Health & Safety

Philips Lighting declared its intention to become carbon neutral at the UN Climate Change Conference COP21 in late 2015.


The commitment includes the operational carbon footprint as defined in the Philips Lighting annual report. It covers full scope 1 and scope 2 emissions, and emissions from both logistics and business travel.

In 2016, Philips Lighting financed the following three carbon offset projects. In total, they sourced 122,000 metric tons of carbon credits, offsetting 23% of their 2016 operational carbon footprint.
