Tutoring in sustainability

Stricter CO2 and climate targets up to the aspiring green zero in 2050 require concrete measures from politics and business as soon as possible. A simple and extremely effective step in the right direction is to convert to modern, efficient and sustainable GLT tubes.

Fact is: Outdated light sources such as FL fluorescent tubes are power guzzlers and cause greenhouse gas emissions to rise. In 2015, the share of the products covered by the new EU directive* in total electricity consumption within the then 28 member states of the European Union was 12.4%. This corresponds to 336 TWh and greenhouse emissions of 132 million tons of CO2. Simply by switching to efficient LED lamps, for example GLT TUBES, electricity consumption could be reduced by 41.9 TWh annually by 2030. This means that half of the lignite power plants still in operation in Germany could be shut down.

There are no more excuses!

The switch to GLT TUBES is environmentally friendly and pays off for the industry and the public sector from day one. It is easy to implement and has only advantages: 

  • Reduction of energy costs by 80%
  • Reduction of CO2 emissions by 80%
  • Minimization of maintenance and servicing costs
  • Increase in profitability in the company
  • Improvement of the ecological balance
  • Reduction of the amount of waste and hazardous waste in particular
  • Support for the circular economy - LED TUBES from German LED Tech are recyclable and can be put back into operation

Make your contribution now

From September 1st, 2021, the outdated lighting technologies may no longer be manufactured and placed on the market, there are still transition periods for use until 2023. However, there is no reasonable reason not to switch to GLT TUBES immediately. Let us make a valuable contribution - for the profitability of your company and to achieve our common climate goals for a successful Green New Deal for Europe.

Our team will be happy to provide you with more information about our efficient, durable and sustainable GLT TUBES "Made in Germany".
