Our Commitment

Tamlite, are committed to providing our customers with the most sustainable and circular lighting solutions possible. That is why we are proud to be the first lighting manufacturer in the UK to achieve TM66 certified status for 30 of our product ranges. Currently, Tamlite is at the forefront, boasting an impressive accomplishment - over 50% of the products, to achieve the prestigious TM66 assured status, belong to us.
TM66 is the product verification scheme developed by the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) and the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE). It provides independent verification of lighting manufacturers' circularity claims, ensuring accuracy and credibility at product level.

Assured Product Status

For each product to achieve TM66 Assured status, Tamlite has undergone a rigorous assessment process. This has involved demonstrating our commitment to circularity principles in all areas of our business, from product design and manufacturing to end-of-life management.

Being TM66 Assured is important to Tamlite for several reasons. Primarily, it demonstrates our commitment to sustainability and circularity. We believe that the lighting industry has a responsibility to reduce its environmental impact, and TM66 is a key tool in helping us, and our customers, to achieve these goals.

Secondly, TM66 Assured gives our customers confidence that they are choosing sustainable and circular lighting solutions. This is increasingly important to businesses and organisations, as they are under increasing pressure to reduce their environmental impact.

Finally, TM66 Assured helps us to stay ahead of our competitors. As the demand for sustainable lighting solutions continues to grow, those manufacturers that are TM66 Assured will be in a strong position to meet this demand.

Our REVO Sport holds a score of 2.7, which makes it one of the highest scoring products assessed by the LIA so far. Tamlite have over 20 products certified, and Tamlite always remain committed to the circular economy and improving the sustainability of our products.

Thought and Technical Leadership

Thought leadership and technical leadership in the lighting industry are essential for driving innovation and progress. Thought leaders, like Tamlite, are at the forefront of the industry, shaping thinking and setting trends. We like to feel that we have a responsibility to envision the future of lighting and developing novel solutions to meet the needs of a changing world. Our technical leadership manages the responsibility for developing and implementing the technologies that make thought leadership possible.

Thought and technical leadership, at Tamlite, is essential for several reasons. Firstly, it helps us to ensure that we remain at the forefront of innovation. As thought leaders we are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible, exploring innovative technologies and developing new ways to use light. Being technical leaders too makes us responsible for bringing these ideas to life, translating them into practical products and solutions.

Furthermore, thought, and technical leadership in the lighting industry helps to raise awareness of the importance of lighting for human health and well-being. As thought leaders we are continuing to educate the public about the impact of light on our circadian rhythms, our sleep, and our overall well-being, with our technical leaders developing new lighting solutions that are designed to promote human health and well-being.

As thought and technical leadership in the lighting industry helps to drive sustainability and energy efficiency, we continue to advocate for the use of more energy-efficient lighting technologies and for the adoption of sustainable lighting practices.

Together, let us continue to make a positive impact on the industry and the environment.
