2 Environmental Sustainability Minding our Ps and Qs Processes ISO environmental certifications for all of our US and Canadian manufacturing facilities We promote recycling at every phase of product life Products More TCLP passing product types than any other lighting manufacturer Use of recycled mercury in all fluorescent and HID lamps Lead-free glass tubes in fluorescent lamp and lead-free solder in many lamp types Lower mercury content in OCTRON 800 series (<3.5 mg) and PENTRON (<2.5 mg) lamps by 40-50% Longer life planned for OCTRON 800 series Packaging We use organic soy-based inks on all packaging Reduction of plastic packaging for DULUX EL compact fluorescent lamps by 40% Performance Lamp performance is maintained while reducing environmental impacts Quality OSI is committed to quality and performance in all of our products and services Quantification We can help business and consumers quantify energy, environmental and financial savings

3 Mercury in lamps Important factors in lamp selection: Lumens (light output) Watts System configuration Life Cost Too little mercury leads to early replacement More overall mercury use Excess replacement costs Lighting is like an employee… it goes unnoticed until it stops performing!

4 What is low mercury? No Industry or Legislative definition of low mercury Reduction of over 87% in 4 T8 lamps There is a limit to low mercury without performance issues How much mercury? 6 mg = ounces 3.5 mg = ounces 30,000 lamps at 6 mg = less than ½ ounce Hg One thermometer =.5g – 1g of Hg 40% of total man-made mercury emissions come from power plants burning fossil fuels Reduce power plant emissions by lowering energy consumption Wattage (system – lamp and ballast) is key Industry Average Hg Dose 4 Fluorescent Lamps 6 mg 48 mg

7 Issues arising with LEED ® EB Limits competitive bidding LEED applicants find difficulty in soliciting 3 bids as required by their own purchasing guidelines Sometimes leads to choice of less efficient lamps to comply Calculation is driving building owners away from efficient lighting Specifying incandescent and halogen lamps rather than fluorescent because they are not included in calculation Easier to make up for energy inefficiencies in lighting elsewhere in order to meet energy performance prerequisite Mercury is sole driver of lamp selection without regard for cost, wattage, or even energy efficiency Could lead to overall INCREASE in mercury contribution Ignores all factors in favor of the one that has the least harmful effect Doesnt require lamp recycling

8 LEED Issues, contd Lamps cannot be LEED-certified. -- Not a product certification Only buildings can be LEED-certified. USGBCs intent was not to apply a whole-building calculation to products Picogram-per-lumen-hour measurement is not a lamp-by-lamp comparison Nor do all lamps individually need to meet the maximum picogram- per-lumen-hour measurement The measurement is for a weighted average of ALL mercury- containing lamps purchased for a project

9 ECOLOGIC Product Offering (TCLP Compliant) Fluorescent ECOLOGIC Products: OCTRON T8 Product Line 2, 3, 4, 5 and 8 T8 lamps in Standard and High Performance Product lines T12 4 and 8 lamps U-Shaped lamps T8 and T12 Products SuperSaver Energy Saving T8 lamps 800 Series Lamps <3.5mg Hg; 700 series to follow (early 2006) PENTRON T5 Product Line All Standard and High Output products are ECOLOGIC Compact Fluorescent Pin Base Lamps DULUX Single, DULUX Double and DULUX Triple tube CF lamps are ECOLOGIC

10 ECOLOGIC Products (cont.) HID Product Line LUMALUX ECO (High Pressure Sodium) LUMALUX PLUS/ECO (Non Cycling HPS) LUMALUX Mercury Free Metalarc PRO-Tech PAR Lamps Lead Free soldered bases in LU and MH Lamps CAPSYLITE Tungsten Halogen Lamps Lead Free soldered bases (reduce heavy metals)
