It's not just Google going fully green. During the UN Climate Chance Conference, Philips pledged to become carbon neutral by 2020, telling others at the summit in Paris that it wants to "play its part in reducing greenhouse gas emissions by cutting its carbon footprint to zero."


As announced in a recent press release, Philips outlined that it has already taken action towards this goal, offering business incentives to clients who operate on renewable power as part of the RE100 program.

Eric Rondolat, CEO, added "We've reached the climate change checkout and all the contributions from around the world have proved insufficient to prevent a potentially catastrophic rise in global temperatures. The world must set more ambitious goals to improve energy efficiency," further paying homage to LED lighting as a major player towards great energy efficiency.
