In September, Signify, formerly Philips Lighting, became a fully carbon neutral company.

Since announcing its commitment at the Cop21 climate summit in Paris, the company has shifted to energy efficient technologies, optimised logistics, reduced business travel, and converted to 100% renewable electricity.
