The Clean Lighting Coalition (CLiC) aims to leverage expert knowledge and clean lighting stakeholders to transition global markets to safe, cost-effective, and energy-saving LED lighting by removing the exemption for fluorescents in the Minamata Convention on Mercury. Mercury and its compounds are highly toxic to people and threaten environmental and ecosystem health.
The LED industry has however invested heavily, and is continuously innovating in development of clean, affordable, zero-mercury lighting making the exemption unnecessary. Now is the time for the industry to work together and signal that mercury is no longer needed in lighting.
CLiC aims to support the LED industry:
- Increase global sales of LED through the promotion of clean, zero-mercury lighting
- Open new markets for LED suppliers in unregulated markets that are currently dominated by fluorescent lighting.
