Transparency throughout the complete product life cycle
To provide our customers with clear information on the environmental impact of each luminaire, Schréder relies on a product life cycle analysis tool (Instant LCA), developed in collaboration with an independent agency (in accordance with the principles of ISO 14040:2006). The results are available in the Product Environmental Profile (PEP) documents. They summarise the luminaire’s life cycle assessment, by examining its environmental impact throughout its life cycle, from raw material extraction to end of life. The PEP documents are available upon request to all customers to help them demonstrate their regulatory compliance and commitment to minimising their environmental footprint. Products designed for a circular economy Schréder takes the circular economy into account, right from the offset. From the concept phase, design guidelines not only take into account the production and environmental impact of our luminaires. They facilitate removing components and increasing the standardisation of parts and the materials' separability once their working life is over. The Schréder Circle Light Label designates products that are optimised for a circular economy without compromising on quality. We assess our luminaires to evaluate their potential circularity through 12 objective criteria in 5 categories:

The luminaires are rated with a comparative scale from 1 star (least circular) to 4 stars (most circular). To support our customers in making an informed choice and developing a truly circular economy, only luminaires with 4 stars are granted a Circle Light Label.
