Clean Lighting Coalition Industry Pledge
As CLiC industry partners, we commit our organization to increase access to clean lighting technology to protect consumers and the planet from toxic mercury.
We commit our institution to phase-out the manufacture, sale, distribution, and/or installation of Compact Fluorescent Lighting by 2024 and Linear Fluorescent Lighting by 2025, in line with what has been proposed under the United Nations’ Minamata Convention on Mercury, thereby supporting the global phase-out of mercury-based fluorescent lighting and accelerating the global transition to LEDs.
We reaffirm that a global transition to clean lighting must be equitable. As wealthy countries lead the lighting transition, the rest of the world must not be treated as a dumping ground for toxic, outdated products like fluorescent bulbs. Consumers in under-served markets must also have access to high-quality, zero-mercury LED lighting.
This CLiC Pledge is a non-binding gesture of support for the global clean lighting transition.
