Sustainability begins when a designer first sits down at a CAD station and doesn’t end until our product is recycled at the end of its useful service life. Along the way, we do everything we can to help our customers achieve their sustainability goals. It’s why we take great pride in the number of times our customers have achieved their targets.

Material Content and Processing

Building in sustainability from the start

In many ways, materials play a critical role in sustainable design throughout their life cycle:

  • Material conservation. Minimizing material overuse can cut waste while reducing transportation costs.
  • Recycled materials. All of our aluminum extrusions are made from recycled aluminum.
  • Safer composition. We’re committed to using finishes free from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).


Reducing jobsite clutter

Our innovative packaging techniques reduce material use, transportation costs and jobsite recycling—all while protecting the products themselves. We use automated shrink-wrap technology to significantly reduce the use of cardboard cartons, allowing installers to see the products before removing the protective packaging.


LEED building design

Lighting that helps you meet LEED® requirements

We offer the performance that sustainable buildings need in order to meet the strictest LEED criteria. Axis Lighting products offer high optical efficiency, flexible lamping choices and high efficiency drivers. Our luminaires deliver the illumination you need while maintaining power densities required by LEED and other programs.

Modern Building


From integrated controls to connected lighting

Axis Lighting can help you achieve your lighting design vision while remaining on the cutting edge of sustainable architecture. Find out more about our Controls-Ready program, offering all the support you need to ensure the successful implementation of lighting control projects. Discover Axis’s advanced expertise in connected lighting to future-proof your facility, including wireless, PoE and other state-of-the-art connected controls.


LEED® installation support

Integrated controls and daylighting

The Axis Lighting portfolio includes integrated controls that substantially reduce energy consumption and meet LEED criteria for daylighted spaces. Axis is also a strategic partner to most of the available controls manufacturers. That broad knowledge of available platforms enables us to assist you in making sure controls are deployed and installed properly.


End of life

Creating a “cradle-to-cradle” life cycle

Because they are made from aluminum, steel, zinc and plastic, Axis Lighting luminaires have a favorable “cradle-to-cradle” life cycle. At the end of their useful life, they can be easily disassembled and separated for recycling.


Lean design and production

Sustainably manufactured

From design through production, our industrial engineers optimize the manufacturing process with state-of-the-art, efficient machinery. All our products are made in North America, lowering transportation costs and minimizing our carbon footprint.
