Philips Lighting was inspired by architect Thomas Rau to create a circular lighting solution. Rau established Turntoo, a separate business to support Philips’ ‘Lighting as a service’ model, to preserve resources by giving a residual value to all lighting materials and components. Together, Philips and Turntoo provide end-to-end management and maintenance of the new, budget-neutral lighting system. Bruynzeel now has a greater degree of energy efficiency and control over their lighting infrastructure, as well as guaranteed reuse of the maximum number of lighting components.
Philips Lighting helped Bruynzeel reduce energy costs by 73% and improved working conditions for employees. The company reduced Bruynzeel’s carbon footprint by 231 tons of CO2, minimized maintenance, and allowed the company to focus solely on its business.
