1 Lighting and Sustainable Design… A Consciousness for The Future Annual Conference 2002

2 Sustainable Design : Getting the “Green Light” “Sustainable design meets the qualitative needs of the visual environment with the least impact on the physical environment” I A L D / Sustainable Design Committee I A L D / Sustainable Design Committee November 2001 November 2001 “Sustainable design meets the qualitative needs of the visual environment with the least impact on the physical environment” I A L D / Sustainable Design Committee I A L D / Sustainable Design Committee November 2001 November 2001

3 IALD SDC Goals..to create an expanded awareness and consciousness of important global design issues in lighting, through educational seminars, articles and policy statements worldwide… Topics include: Energy EfficiencyEnergy Efficiency Daylighting IntegrationDaylighting Integration Lighting Control ProgramsLighting Control Programs Light Pollution and Light TrespassLight Pollution and Light Trespass Visual Performance and Human FactorsVisual Performance and Human Factors Durability and Maintainability of Lighting SystemsDurability and Maintainability of Lighting Systems Eco-Friendly Products and Processes/ recognition to manufacturersEco-Friendly Products and Processes/ recognition to manufacturers
