The en.lighten initiative addresses the challenge of accelerating global market transformation to environmentally sustainable lighting technologies by developing a coordinated global strategy and providing technical support for the phase-out of inefficient lighting. This will reduce global GHGs from the lighting sector and mercury released from coal combustion. The en.lighten initiative was created in 2009 as a partnership between the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), OSRAM AG and Philips Lighting with the support of the Global Environment Facility (GEF). The National Lighting Test Centre (NLTC) became a partner in 2011.
