We keep industry working – but what kind of person works for us?
The project comprises a new LED lighting unit, revolutionary business model and service that encourage the purchase of energy-efficient lighting whilst also eradicating all waste at the end of the product’s life.
Although other companies sell LEDs, RS twinned the best energy-efficient LED technology with a buyback scheme for customers’ old lighting units and a closed-loop waste management service. The key benefit of this is zero waste at the end of the product’s life, since they are repurposed or refurbished and resold or all materials are recovered.
The LED technology reduces energy use by up to 80% and offers customers maximum longevity, whilst the buyback scheme removes the barrier created by the product’s high purchase price, accelerating the take-up of the new product.
The project has been a great success and has seen sales rising significantly since its launch. RS won both the 'Environment Product/Service Award' at the Environment and Energy Awards 2014 and the Green Apple Environment Award for this scheme.
Over the next three years, the team will roll this offer out across the Group.
