“As a Campus, we consider it natural that visitors should encounter the best and very latest technology. This technology ensures significant energy savings and produces lower carbon emissions. In addition, we will not have to do anything with our lighting system for the next ten years; Philips will handle all of that” explains Harrie Arends, Operations Manager at High Tech Campus Eindhoven.
Derk Bots, Sales Manager at Philips Lighting, explains why Philips is taking the lead in creating a circular economy: “In a circular economy, we use natural resources efficiently. By definition, it stimulates innovation in reusing materials, components and products. By offering entrepreneurs the opportunity to purchase circular lighting, Philips contributes to a sustainable economy and helps entrepreneurs do the same. It also stimulates innovation. For instance, the contract with the Campus includes options for introducing more innovations at a later date.”
