The Change Initiative is a unique one-stop marketplace, providing a carefully selected and created range of household products and appliances as well as sustainable solutions for the community, business and government. The project is also intended to act as a hub of information and services for anyone interested in the environment.

The lighting for the project meets all criteria to fulfill the LEED Platinum status for energy-conscious and sustainable design & construction by using the latest lamp and lighting control technologies to reduce energy consumption in a considerable way.

Daylight and occupancy sensors control the lighting in all public areas as well as in the dedicated office, meeting and training rooms. Zonal lighting in the retail and show room areas is automatically dimmed when there are no visitors or enough daylight is available. Solar tubes in the first floor allow for additional daylight harvesting for office and display spaces.

All energy-saving measures result in a highly efficient, flexible and attractive lighting installation.
