Dialight Accepted by Carbon Trust Accredited Supplier Scheme

Dialight, the innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, today announced that it has become an ‘Accredited Supplier’ in the Carbon Trust’s recently launched Green Business Directory. The directory features suppliers which have been independently assessed and accredited via the Carbon Trust Accredited Supplier scheme in order to aid organisations looking to install energy efficient and low carbon technologies.

The news comes on the back of new research from the Carbon Trust that found while 96 percent of businesses surveyed said that energy efficiency is an important consideration when purchasing or upgrading equipment, only half were confident about manufacturers’ energy efficiency claims. 58 percent of those surveyed said that they would benefit from a trusted database of accredited suppliers in advance of purchasing equipment.

Hugh Jones, Managing Director of Business Advice at the Carbon Trust, said: “Our survey showed that return on investment is the most important factor for organisations considering investing in energy efficiency and low carbon technologies – but accurate business cases require accurate information from suppliers. The Green Business Directory will make it easy for organisations to find independently accredited suppliers who have demonstrated their success in delivering sustainable, low carbon solutions in what is a crowded and fast-growing market.”

The accreditation process requires applicants to submit case studies of their work and answer a number of questions –including several on insurance and whether the company holds recognised qualifications for quality assurance, environmental management and health and safety.

“Our independent accreditation by the Carbon Trust demonstrates that Dialight has a significant track record in the design and delivery of successful, high quality, low energy lighting solutions,” said Roy Burton, Dialight’s Group Chief Executive. “Beyond meeting the specific requirements of the Carbon Trust, our products have proven in third-party testing to be highly durable as well as energy efficient. Even under the harshest conditions, our LED systems deliver exceptional lighting and long-life performance that make total cost of ownership a winning proposition for even the most demanding applications.”

In addition to lighting, the Green Business Directory covers key technologies such as AM&T (automatic metering & targeting), HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), controls, compressed air, solar PV, biomass, energy efficient UPS (uninterruptible power supplies) and IT, energy efficient hand dryers and voltage management.
