Recolight: Circular Economy webinars for autumn 2021

Recolight have announced new Circular Economy webinars for the Autumn. All webinars will be chaired by Ray Molony who said: “There is definitely a shift in attitudes happening in the lighting industry, and we’re starting to look seriously at the implications of adopting circular economy principles.  Companies that ignore this shift risk looking out of touch.”

  • The specifier’s role in the Circular Economy – 16 September
    Specifiers are becoming pivotal in driving the uptake of circular economy principles for new lighting projects. In this webinar we bring together a panel to debate how specifiers and end users can maximise the use of product circularity in new projects.
  • Extending the life of luminaires – 7 October
    The need to no longer see luminaires as a single life product has been widely discussed in the Recolight Webinar series. Progress is being made, and we hear of initiatives undertaken to facilitate remanufacture and reuse.
  • Designing sustainable luminaires – 28 October
    Explores how luminaire producers can adapt their designs to encourage products to be reused or upgraded at the end of first life, or at least to be more efficiently recycled.


A range of Lighting Producers, specifiers, and designers will share their insight and positive initiatives being undertaken to reduce the impact on the environment. We will also hear from Defra on how they may encourage and incentivise product reuse.

Previous webinars this year discussed:

Recolight CEO Nigel Harvey said, “The Recolight webinars have bought together the lighting industry helping all to adopt a Circular Economy approach. Much progress has been made since we started, not just with action undertaken by the industry, but also legislation. The generosity of our panellists to share their knowledge and experience is invaluable with helping to move the industry towards a sustainable model.  It has been genuinely heartening to see the continuing high level of interest and attendance our webinars have attracted.”

All are free to join, head to the Recolight Events page for more information and to register.


We were established by the UK lighting industry in 2005 primarily for the purpose of operating a Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Compliance Scheme on behalf of lamp producers in the UK. Our operating model is based upon one developed by the European Lamp Companies Federation (ELC) - a European Trade Association for lamp manufacturers - although the implementation is different in each country, reflecting the different national implementations of the WEEE Directive EC2002/94
