Reduced material consumption In 2022 we continued to work on our luminaire designs to reduce material consumption. Not only are our new products designed with this eco-friendly philosophy, but we also decided to look back at our product portfolio and significantly redesign our existing products to reduce their aluminium content. Despite our strong commitment, our broad product portfolio does not allow us to optimise everything at once, so we started with our high runner products to make the biggest positive impact in the shortest time. Good examples of new products in 2022 are the AMPERA EVO range, where we have reduced the aluminium content by an average of 15% for all sizes, or the AXIA 3 EVO 1, where the aluminium content has been reduced by 50% compared to the previous AXIA design. While our engineering teams are improving our product portfolio with new, lighter products, our sales team is working hard to promote these solutions, resulting in a continuous reduction in the material emissions of our products. In 2022, we achieved a 26% reduction compared to our 2018 baseline.
Thanks to these actions, we have been able to provide citizens and communities with an increased lumen output (more light), improving safety and well-being in public spaces, without aggravating our environmental impact. In addition to these actions, we continue to look for ways to improve our global waste management at our factories through our different local programmes that promote reuse, recovery and recycling. Since we started measuring the environmental footprint of our operations, we have identified the following 4 main emission sources: 1. Product materials 2. Logistics 3. Employee mobility 4. Infrastructure I. Product materials The main source of GHG emissions is related to the materials we use to produce our luminaires. This accounts for 72% of our total company emissions.
