    CREATING A BETTER WORLD WITH A CIRCULAR ECONOMY

    SUSTAINABILITY IS IN OUR DNA

     

    Other companies may talk about sustainability, but at Vari-Lite, we deliver on it. From the beginning, we have created innovative lighting solutions and advanced technologies for the entertainment industry designed to make performances—and life—much better.

     

    A circular economy ensures that resources and products remain in use for as long as possible, minimizing waste for a positive impact on the environment and society.

     

    Our products and solutions maximize reusability, serviceability, and upgradeability, and minimize value destruction to preserve value and avoid waste-to-landfill.​

     

    We’re all in this together. Contact us to learn more about how our solutions help create a better world.

    SUPPORTING A CIRCULAR ECONOMY

     

    Vari-Lite contributes to a circular economy by extending the product life cycle. We are known for high-quality, long-lasting products, with many of our luminaires and control devices still in use years, or even decades, after they were first released.​

     

    Every part on a Vari-Lite luminaire is replaceable, with recyclable LED and conventional drivers and modules that prolong the life of the fixture and minimize the need to purchase a new one. Our non-luminaire portfolio can also be easily updated, offering modular designs that enable our customers to update individual power modules, processors, and user interfaces without affecting or replacing the entire infrastructure. With regular, free software and firmware updates to our consoles, luminaires, and other products, our users get new features and creative tools without waste.

    REDUCING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

     

    • Luminaires serviceable using standard, widely accessible tools easily replace driver, controls, and LED boards.
    • Replaceable and recyclable LED and conventional drivers, modules, etc. – drivers and LEDs can be replaced in all fixtures.
    • Lifelong monitoring and preventative maintenance scheduling – lifelong monitoring of lamp hours and lifetime of the fixture.
    • Service centers, extended warranties, and managed services with end-of-contract return options – prolong product lifetime with value-added services.
    • Replaceable power control processors, power modules, and architectural control components ­– update just the part of your infrastructure that needs updating and keep what still works.
    • Regular software, firmware and fixture library updates, plus support for industry standards such as GDTF, DMX, RDM, sACN, Art-Net, CITP, etc. – long-term support for new features, new fixtures, and new devices from across the industry.
