A new series of workshops on how to calculate circular and carbon metrics for lighting products has been announced by Recolight. The educational event explores the latest guidelines, standards, and legislation, life cycle assessments and associated metrics.
The focus is on the practical delivery of TM66 and TM65. Delegates will learn:
- How TM66 and TM65 combine to validate the circular and embodied carbon content of products already designed
- And how these metrics can be used in future developments to better inform circular decision making in the design phase of a project
Hosted by lighting product designer, Simon Fisher of F Mark, the CPD-accredited events also look at the approaches and techniques to creating lights with long use, repair and upgradeability built in.
Simon estimates that 80% of a light fitting’s environmental impact is determined at the design phase. He says, “To quote environmentalist Ellen MacArthur, ‘waste is a design flaw; In nature it doesn’t exist.’”
The workshops are intended for technical managers, design and engineering managers, quality managers, compliance engineers, sustainability managers, marketing managers, product managers, and any others that influence product design. They are a roundtable environment with a maximum of 12 delegates, giving the opportunity for full interaction, feedback, and questions for each topic. Places are available for Wednesday 21 June, in London, with more dates to be announced.
Delegate feedback from previous Recolight workshops:
“Simon delivered a superb CPD workshop explaining and unravelling the complexities of the circular economy from the perspective of designers and manufacturers. Interactive and informative; this is knowledge sharing at its finest,” says Jago Wickers of LUMINO.
