5 reasons to maximize triple-bottom-line with human-centric lighting
James Tu, CEO, wrote an article for University Business titled, “5 reasons to maximize triple-bottom-line with human-centric lighting.”
The past year has driven many university leaders to view their facilities from a different perspective. Between the COVID-19 pandemic and 2020 tying 2016 as the warmest year on record, the focus on wellness and the environment has never been greater.
Advanced, human-centric lighting systems, or HCL, can positively impact both. This approach can also lower operating costs, achieving “triple-bottom-line” benefits surrounding financial, environmental, and human vectors, such as:
- improving the wellness of the university community through better lighting;
- reducing environmental impact from sustainable lighting systems;
- maximizing long-term investments and return on the lighting upgrades.
Government incentives add even more reasons for university leaders to seize the opportunity to make these important upgrades to their infrastructure.
