Sustainable Lighting Solutions from Lightenco
The lights we use in our daily lives often fade into the background of our thinking, however, for Lightenco, it’s an everyday bright, shining reality! Operating out of Ontario and Québec, Lightenco is an award-winning leader in efficient LED lighting design, knowledge, and advocacy.
Though a young company, their impact has been immense, with recognition and awards being presented to Lightenco from Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal. Awards from organizations such as Québec Entrepreneurial Contest for best business service, Montréal region and in Ottawa by Hydro Ottawa for their dedication to energy conservation and sustainability.
For Lightenco, their lighting work is designed to help save prospective businesses and organizations money in energy and maintenance costs while also reducing environmental impact. However, energy efficiency is only one component of the advantage of LED lighting. Better, cleaner lighting adapted for the needs of the space has health, safety and productivity benefits too. Knowing the full advantages of cleaner, controlled lighting systems is all part of Lightenco’s passion for a cleaner tomorrow.
In fact, Lightenco works with a range of organizations across Ontario and Québec to collaborate and support cleaner, more sustainable practices. Using LED technologies, Lightenco’s lighting systems are free of mercury, emit no UV/IR light, produce far less heat, and last over 50 000 hours. Further, Lightenco ensures that all lighting systems (many of which contain mercury) removed and replaced are properly recycled, an important step in protecting our environment.
Growing cleaner means growing together, so Lightenco is an active member in collaborative community organizations. As a member of organizations like HUB Ottawa or Futurpreneur, Lightenco contributes to fostering social innovation by working with other local social entrepreneurs. In doing so, Lightenco has established an excellent reputation for mentoring, all the while learning from the community which they serve.
For us here at Ottawa Centre EcoDistrict, Lightenco has continually provided their support by being one of our first sponsors. Lightenco has stood by Ottawa Centre EcoDistrict through our many events, including being a Gold Sponsor at our most recent event: #EnviroFest. It is through the support of Lightenco for organizations such as Ottawa Centre EcoDistrict and others that Lightenco shows its commitment for social, commercial, and environmental innovation.
