LEDCity wins Green Business Award

Zurich/Kriens LU – LEDCitiy has been awarded this year’s Green Business Award. The Zurich-based company convinced the jury with its intelligent lighting system.

LEDCity has won the Green Business Award 2023. The Zurich-based company, founded in 2017, has developed an intelligent lighting system that uses around 50 percent less energy than conventional LED lighting with motion sensors. This year, 28 applicants competed for the most important sustainability award in Switzerland. In addition to LEDCity, Haelixa with its DNA marker for raw materials and namuk with its high-quality children’s outdoor label had also reached the finals, inform the organizers of the Green Business Award in a statement.

“LEDCity’s solution convinced us because it shows how we can use technology and artificial intelligence to address challenges in the energy industry,” jury president Doris Leuthard is quoted as saying in the release. For LEDCity CEO Patrik Deuss, the award shows “that we are on the right track with our energy-saving and at the same time quickly amortizable lighting system”. In addition, he said, the win underscores “our commitment to sustainable innovation.”

LEDCity uses up to five sensors per light source. In addition to brightness and movement, humidity, temperature and CO2 concentration are measured. The data obtained can be used, for example, by security systems or for planning cleaning operations.

This is the fifth year that the Green Business Award has been presented by the cooperation Green Business Switzerland. It recognizes “solutions that combine ecological innovation with economic success,” according to the release. Green Business Switzerland is backed by players from business and environmental protection. The cooperation was initiated by the Swiss Environmental Foundation and the Go for Impact association. ce/hs
