How can the humble lightbulb transform your results?

Light is driving every single cell in your body right now. It affects how you feel, how you look - and how much you will remember of this sentence. Healthy lighting can boost your productivity, memory and mood. It can even help you to reduce your carbon footprint. Light can also be, quite literally, a killer.  A shocking rise in chronic conditions have been directly linked to our twilight indoor lives, from depression and learning difficulties to obesity, heart disease and cancer.

Just as an apple is not a healthy diet, a light bulb is not healthy lighting.  But, as part of an integrated approach to the built environment, the humble light bulb really does have the power to transform your results, Good for people, for planet and for profit.
