An instant success on its debut in 2022, Circular Lighting Live has become the defining gathering of the supply chain to assess its progress towards net zero.

A visit to Circular Lighting Live, shows just how far the lighting industry has come in the last few years.  The one-day conference and exhibition is organised by UK’s leading environmental compliance scheme Recolight.

Aimed at the full supply chain, including manufacturers, suppliers and specifiers, it takes place on Wednesday 9th October 2024 at the Royal College of Physicians in London.

The event brings together over 300 of the lighting industry’s top executives to consider how our sector can become part of the circular economy.

On the agenda in 2024 is the legislative and regulatory landscape, the role AI can play in assisting firms with data, the opportunities and challenges of the emerging lighting remanufacturing ‘ecosystem’, 3D printing, circular design and sustainable materials including bioplastics.

Speakers include Signify chief design officer, Ton Borsboom, who will explore  if AI and digitalisation represents the next revolution in sustainable design, and Orms architect Rachel Hoolahan, who will explain how each luminaire is set to get its own materials ‘passport’.

For 2024, the organisers have a more expansive exhibition floor and included a dedicated track for lighting designers.

In the Designer’s Track, lighting designer Paul Beale, founder of 18 Degrees, will share how a decision to salvage hundreds of office lights ignited a journey to forge connections throughout the industry.

Free to specifiers, Circular Lighting Live 2024 will feature leading experts, specifiers and policy makers who will share their insights into forthcoming standards and legislation, emerging technologies and new business models.

Exhibitors include ASD Lighting, BELL Lighting, Glamox, Holophane, Llumarlite, Regen Initiative, Signify and Stoane Lighting.

Commenting on the importance of the event, Ray Molony, event chair said “Many have well-established environmental plans in place and will cheerfully deluge you with data about the provenance of their luminaires. Others are just embarking on their journey towards a circular economy. But what’s clear is that the mass movement has begun and it’s gaining momentum. Phrases like ‘remanufacturing’, ‘circularity’ or ‘embedded carbon’ are becoming common currency, and lighting designers are having serious conversations with clients about reusing luminaires.“
