Holophane and AEL cease production of all HID and Fluorescent products
In fiscal 2022, Acuity Brands announced our ambition to achieve Net Zero carbon emissions by 2040. Our strategic focus is to drive new product vitality, elevate customer service, and lead the industry’s technology transformation. As one critical part of this effort, the Holophane® and AEL® brands have discontinued the manufacturing of all fluorescent and HID luminaires as of May 1, 2023 and are only selling integrated LED products.
Our journey of transitioning from a portfolio fully comprised of fluorescent and HID fixtures to a robust offering of energy-efficient LED luminaires began more than a decade ago. As a leading infrastructure and industrial technology company, we continuously explore ways to improve overall efficiency and reduce our impact on the environment. This transition to an all-LED luminaire portfolio provides customers with a wide range of industry-leading options. We are continuing to take actions that have a meaningful impact on reducing both our own and our customers’ carbon footprints.
