Environmental responsibility

Signify has led the transformation and decarbonisation of the lighting sector and recently announced its 2040 Climate Transition Plan, setting out its vision to reach net zero by 2040. The company has reduced GHG emissions across the entire value chain by 50% since 2019 and continues to advocate for energy efficiency and an accelerated energy transition. With the new partnership comes a commitment from Signify to share knowledge and expertise to support the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team in developing its Climate Transition Plan.

Well-being and performance

To win in Formula One, every team member must perform to their full potential at every moment. Signify’s lighting innovations will augment the team’s efforts to create optimal conditions for athletes, engineers and team members, helping them see, feel, and perform at their best. NatureConnect, Eye Comfort and other technologies will bring the power of daylight indoors to aid concentration, reduce eye strain, and support the body’s natural rhythm and ability to adjust to a challenging global schedule.

Unforgettable experiences

Signify’s lighting shines on night circuits in Singapore and Las Vegas, ensuring the fastest show on earth is perfectly lit. Signify also delivers immersive TV and gaming surround lighting for those who are not on the track, transporting fans home to the heart of the action.
