Vitality Cascade Flex
Whitecroft Lighting is experiencing increased interest in its Circular Economy strategy with the introduction of the "Cascade Flex Vitality" - one of the world's first recessed luminaires to be awarded the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Bronze level certificate. In this context, the Manchester-based manufacturer of lighting fixtures has introduced its new Circular Economy platform. Supported by EPEA, the company is driving sustainability as an innovation vector to keep the material quality of its luminaires high throughout their life cycle - such as through repair, regeneration, reuse and material recovery.
"This is the beginning of a new, more sustainable business model. The move towards circular solutions will have a direct impact on the whole lighting industry in the UK". Matt Paskin, design director at Whitecroft Lighting.
But circular product design alone is not enough. It requires partnerships, for example for new services around the product, to develop solutions together and be part of the solution.
