VELVET radiant sustainability: the transformative benefits of low-carbon aluminum lighting fixtures

In an era where environmental consciousness is no longer a choice but a responsibility, VELVET is leading the way in revolutionizing the lighting industry by prioritizing sustainability. 
As a pioneer European cinema and TV LED luminaires manufacturer, VELVET is committed to producing lighting fixtures that not only illuminate film and TV sets efficiently but also contribute to a greener future.

By integrating low-carbon recycled aluminum into their products, VELVET is setting a new standard for green illumination with a host of tangible benefits.

For six years now, the VELVET factory in Barcelona has been running only with energy from a green supplier. We have also incorporated various manufacturing and packaging processes using recycled materials to help reduce environmental impact. Our products are made entirely in our factory in Barcelona and most of our suppliers are local within a radius of less than 50 km. The rest of our manufacturing partners are European. 
Our professional consumers, now more than ever, are conscious of the ecological footprint of the products they purchase. Lighting fixtures made with low-carbon aluminum appeal to this environmentally conscious base and also contribute to a real social responsibility. VELVET can proudly claim a more sustainable and environmentally friendly product “made to last”.
Utilizing low-carbon aluminum in lighting fixture manufacturing is a testament to VELVET’s commitment to circular economy principles. This approach not only conserves natural resources but also reduces the demand for new aluminum extraction, mitigating the ecological disruption caused by mining activities. By integrating recycled materials into our supply chain, we contribute to the creation of a closed-loop system, where products are designed with end-of-life considerations in mind, promoting sustainability throughout the product lifecycle.

Aluminum, renowned for its lightweight, robustness and corrosion-resistant properties, has long been a staple in the manufacturing of lighting fixtures. However, the conventional methods of aluminum extraction and transformation are energy-intensive and contribute substantially to greenhouse gas emissions. The advent of low-carbon aluminum seeks to address these environmental concerns, offering a greener alternative with numerous benefits:

1. Reduce our/your carbon footprint:

With the introduction of recycled low-carbon aluminium VELVET continues its effort to reduce its own and its customers’ environmental footprint associated with the production of professional LED lighting fixtures. 
Traditional aluminum manufacturing processes are energy-intensive, relying heavily on fossil fuels. By adopting advanced technologies and renewable energy sources, VELVET minimizes the environmental impact, making each lighting fixture a beacon of sustainability. 

Low-carbon aluminium products carry a carbon footprint below 4 kilo CO2-equivalents (CO2e) per kilo aluminium and are designed to help customers reach their sustainability goals and meet the growing demands of climate-conscious consumers. 

Customers who choose VELVET’s LED luminaires can rest assured that their lighting solutions are contributing to a healthier planet.

2. Promote circular economy principles:

VELVET takes a proactive stance on waste reduction by incorporating recycled aluminum into their LED light luminaires. Recycling aluminum requires only a fraction of the energy compared to primary production, reducing the demand for new extraction and curbing the environmental disruptions caused by mining activities. This commitment to a circular economy aligns with global sustainability goals, fostering a closed-loop system where materials are reused and repurposed, minimizing waste and maximizing resource efficiency.

3. VELVET energy efficiency and cost savings

VELVET LED technology, with the best lux/watt ratio on the market, is renowned for its energy efficiency and a very low associated energy consumption which makes it very cost-effective over time. VELVET’s lighting fixtures become even more environmentally friendly combining its effiency with low-carbon aluminum. The use of advanced materials and manufacturing processes not only reduces the environmental impact but also translates into tangible cost savings for professional customers who can enjoy the benefits of cutting-edge LED lighting without compromising on sustainability.

4. Regulatory compliance and incentives:

VELVET products are 100% made in Europe with comitted local suppliers. VELVET’s use of low-carbon and recycled aluminum not only ensures compliance with existing regulations but may also open the door to incentives offered by several governments promoting eco-friendly initiatives. By staying ahead of regulatory requirements, VELVET not only contributes to a cleaner environment but also enhances its economic viability in a changing landscape in the media supply industry.  

5. Innovation and industry leadership:

VELVET’s commitment to low-carbon aluminum is not just about meeting current environmental standards but also about driving innovation within the industry. By investing in research and development, VELVET aims to continuously improve the efficiency of its manufacturing processes, setting new benchmarks for sustainable lighting solutions. This commitment to innovation not only benefits the environment but also solidifies VELVET’s position in the LED lighting industry. 
VELVET’s integration of low-carbon aluminum in the manufacturing of LED luminaires represents a significant leap towards a more sustainable and responsible future. The multifaceted benefits, ranging from reduced carbon emissions to cost savings for customers, position VELVET as a trailblazer in the realm of eco-friendly lighting solutions. As businesses and individuals increasingly prioritize sustainability, VELVET’s LED lighting solutions emerge not just as luminous and efficient fixtures but as beacons of environmental responsibility, lighting the way to a greener and brighter future.
