Recolight has announced a new series of workshops to help manufacturers integrate circular economy principles into the design of lighting products.
The one-day in-person workshops will outline circular economy standards and specifications that companies can use to show the circularity of their products. They will also provide practical guidance on circular design issues, including design for long and extended use, upgradability and repairability, replaceability, material selection, use of recycled raw materials, and design for recovery. A series of case studies will be used to show how these requirements can be implemented in practice. Additionally, attendees have the opportunity to bring their own business product to the workshop, for review by attendees, to consider how it could be adapted for greater circularity.
The workshops will feature a roundtable environment with a maximum of 12 delegates, providing the opportunity for full interaction, feedback and questions for each topic. The workshops take place on four dates:
April 7 – London
May 17 – Birmingham
June 7 – Leeds
June 14 – London
To match the ethos of the event and in line with Recolight’s own net zero ambitions, all venues are within walking distance of major train stations, to encourage attendees to join using public transport.
The course is presented by Simon Fisher, Founder and Director of F Mark, a consultancy specializing in the design, development and engineering of lighting products and associated systems. Simon has already led seminars on many topics related to the design of lighting products. He is a Fellow of the Society of Light and Lighting and sits on technical committees related to the circular economy and lighting refurbishment, both at the Lighting Industry Association and the British Standards Institution.
Discounts on course fees are available for companies that are member growers of the Recolight Compliance Program.
