‘Walk the talk: at KBC we think that’s important’, says Iwan Barrez. He is the sustainability manager and project leader for Light as a Service (LaaS) at KBC Corporate Banking.
‘We offer our customers solutions that are both sustainable and profitable. That’s how we ended up with Signify.’
But in the last few years we’ve evolved into something much more than a ‘lightbulb manufacturer’, explains Philip Eeckhout, Corporate Account Manager at Signify.
‘Our focus is on circular solutions, more convenience for our customers and more comfort for users.’
Using LED lighting means companies can save up to 70 percent on their energy bills. KBC was a leader here, making the move to LED as early as 2013. ‘Since then, we've made the switch in all our large buildings. In the Boerentoren building in Antwerp, that delivered a massive saving: the investment paid for itself within three years.’
