LED Tubes Launching in July to Deliver Best Alternative to Natural Light
June 16, 2020
Sustainable building design is widely recognized for positively impacting health, well-being, and productivity. The voluntary international WELL Building Standard®  prescribes evidence-based best practices for the application of high quality - and circadian-supportive lighting - solely focused on the health and wellness of building occupants. Lighting in offices and other similar workplaces may also benefit from the well-being outcomes of natural light. Recent research within the smart-buildings community finds that 90% of office business costs are related to employees, i.e. salaries, benefits, etc. . Only 1% goes for energy, and of that only half (0.5%) for electricity . Lighting solutions that increase energy efficiency only leverage the 0.5% of costs. However, lighting solutions that increase employee well-being and productivity will target the 90% of costs. With Natural Light for Natural Living, SYLVANIA Natural Series provide value well beyond what simply switching to LEDs can provide in meeting WELL Building requirements.
