Environmental Responsibility

The history of Helvar is also the history of saving energy. We have developed important energy saving solutions for the luminaire industry.

For the good of the environment


Helvar's advanced
solutions can achieve
up to 80%  energy savings


Lighting is the single biggest energy user in offices. Helvar ’s advanced solutions can achieve up to 80%energy savings compared to traditional solutions. As the temperature of a luminaire drops when it is dimmed, air-conditioning consumes less energy. This can be exploited with lighting control and detectors that ensure that there is a correct amount of light -and only where there are users.

We develop products and services that help people save energy. Accordingly, we improve our own production methods in order to make them more environmentally friendly. We regularly evaluate the products and production methods of our suppliers and subcontractors -also from an environmental perspective. What ’s more, we co-operate closely and openly with authorities as well as customers in environmental matters.
