Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our Organisation is initiated by the EU-project STARS4ALL, which is creating a platform for social awareness and scientific networking in the field of light pollution -the negative impact of outdoor lighting e.g. streetlighting. We need a label to certify good practice of outdoor lighting for villages and companies, e.g. hotels. The label shall act like for example the trip-advisor label and promote the village as a touristic destination for the protection of its nightscape. Villages and companies shall be rewarded for the investment in sustainable, ecological friendly outdoor lighting.
The criteria for sustainable lighting will be (a) to use the lowest intensity that is needed for its purpose, (b) to direct the light to where it is needed and avoid especially horizontal and upward directed light, (c) to reduce the blue content of the light, using warm white or amber colored light instead of cold white light, (d) to limit the light emission to the time when it is used and to dim or switch it off at times, when nobody needs it.
