Our spirit: Lightability™
With a century-long tradition of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit, we pushed the limits of our business towards smart lighting.
This requires us to broaden our expertise to not only light the urban environment but also bring more services to interact with the public space and its people.
Lightability™ is how we describe our mission coupled with our beliefs
- We help local authorities to establish open, interoperable platforms and provide easy-to-integrate infrastructure that not only improves the quality of life in cities but also the quality of democracy.
- We care for the tax-payers’ money and will provide the best cost/benefit for citizens. Hence we encourage a more effective use of public finances by integrating public policies and operational cost reductions through new technologies.
- We stimulate active, open and inclusive participation of actors belonging to a city’s innovation eco-system to foster the social, environmental and economic development of businesses and citizens.
- We strive to create inclusive environments that stimulate accessibility for people with disabilities, encourage gender and ethnic equity, and bring new opportunities to vulnerable places in cities.
- We encourage and implement training initiatives for citizens, planners and public managers on lighting & smarter cities in an open, transparent and non-biased way.
After more than a century of innovation, we realised that there was still no word to explain what we do, something that goes far beyond lighting.
So, as problem-solvers and as engineers, we invented one. We call this skill Lightability™.
It’s about being experts in using light. The ability to make that light human.
It’s our drive to grasp and explore everything there is about the potential of light. For everyone.
But Lightability™ is not just a skill. It’s an attitude.
It’s reimagining the way light is used through efficiency, innovation, sustainability and expertise.
It is the capacity to use the power of light to improve the world at large.
Because the light we help bring is more than physical.
It gives hope, makes love stronger, and protects what matters to us. It is one that always finds a way to make things better.
And turning to history, the pioneers of the past created new terms, shaping culture and societies, breaking old boundaries to build smarter, connected communities.
That is what we strive to deliver: innovation.
We are pioneers lighting the way for the visionaries. So that their ideas can shine.
Because lighting can empower people, impact lives, support communities, transform spaces, cities - and the planet.
For 115 years we have been experts at using light to its fullest potential. And we’ll keep on doing just that.
All of this is connected.
All of this is Lightability™.
