CIBSE and the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) have joined forces to introduce an innovative product verification scheme aimed at promoting circular economy practices within the lighting industry. This scheme, known as the TM66 Assured, will provide independent verification of lighting manufacturers’ circularity claims, ensuring accuracy and credibility
The TM66 Assured product verification scheme, developed by the LIA and endorsed by CIBSE, is now an essential component of the comprehensive TM66 toolkit to assess the circular economy credentials of lighting products throughout the supply chain. It leverages CIBSE’s TM66 Creating a Circular Economy in the Lighting Industry guidelines and the TM66 Circular Economy Assessment Methods (CEAM). These were developed by a cross-industry team of manufacturers, specifiers and associations whose insight and ideas ensured TM66, published in 2021, would be both easy-to-use and widely applied.
TM66 offers practical guidance and tools to enable the lighting sector to adopt sustainable, circular practices and has already gained recognition and adoption by major specifiers and organisations within the industry. In the future, it is envisaged that this will be extended to cover other areas of building services engineering beyond lighting products.
