Eco-design in the Lighting Sector: A Sustainable Approach for the Future

In an increasingly environmentally conscious world, eco-design emerges as a crucial practice for companies seeking to reduce their ecological footprint. This approach, focused on integrating environmental criteria into product design, has become essential in the lighting sector to drive sustainability.

What is Eco-Design?

Eco-design, also known as sustainable design, is a practice that looks for minimize the environmental impact of products throughout their life cycle. This involves carefully considering each stage, from raw material extraction to manufacturing, use, and the final disposal of the product.

Principles of Eco-Design Applied to Lighting

1. Selection of Sustainable Materials

In eco-designing lighting systems, the choice of materials is key. Opting for recycled or low-impact environmental materials can significantly reduce the product's ecological footprint. Additionally, efforts are made to minimize the use of toxic substances during manufacturing.

2. Energy Efficiency

The implementation of low-energy LED technologies and the optimization of electrical circuits are common strategies to improve efficiency, durability, and reduce energy consumption over the product's lifespan.

3. Durability and Repairability

Promoting the durability of products and facilitating their repair are fundamental elements of eco-design. Designing luminaires that can withstand the test of time and be easily repaired reduces the need for replacement and, consequently, waste generation.

4. Modular Design

Modular design allows for the updating of individual components without replacing the entire system, prolonging the product's life, and decreasing waste generation. It also facilitates adaptation to technological advancements without discarding the entire equipment.

5. Recyclability and Circularity

Circular economy is an important aspect of designing sustainable lighting systems. The design of new lighting products should consider ease of disassembly and recycling at the end of their life cycle.

Practical Application in the Lighting Sector

1. Low-Energy LED Luminaires

LED luminaires are a popular choice in lighting eco-design due to their energy efficiency and durability. Furthermore, companies aim to use recycled materials in the manufacturing of these products.

2. Intelligent Management Systems

The implementation of intelligent management systems that automatically adjust light intensity according to specific environmental needs contributes to more efficient energy use.

3. Component Recycling
Companies committed to eco-design are establishing recycling programs to collect and reuse luminaire components at the end of their life cycle.
Eco-design in the lighting sector is not only a necessary response to the current environmental crisis but also an opportunity to innovate and lead the way towards a more sustainable future. By adopting these principles, the lighting industry can illuminate not only spaces but also the path towards more responsible and environmentally friendly business practices.

Luminaires designed by Normagrup Technology

At Normagrup Technology we provide solutions designed according to the principles of Eco-Design. In addition, all our products use LED technology for their operation. These are some of our most sustainable products:

  • ELEMENT: A surface downlights family based on equipment obsolescence where all components are replaceable and recyclable.
  • POLART: Recessed downlights with an attractive, sustainable design and multiple adaptation possibilities.
  • VIA: Family of emergency luminaires that concentrates versatility, efficiency and brilliance in a super small size. Possibility of recessed, surface and wall installation.
  • SIGNAL: Versatile exit signs with multiple accessories to cover any installation need.


Since 2023, Normagrup Technology became the first Spanish brand to obtain the N Sustainable AENOR certificate in recognition of their commitment to the environment, society, and governance.

In addition, we have held the ISO 14000 environmental certification since 2015.
