Signify and and the National Hockey League (NHL) have announced their partnership to help the more than 4,800 ice rinks across North America, from major arenas to community facilities, transition to sustainable LED and connected lighting.
These solutions can help the ice hockey industry reduce its environmental footprint by improving energy efficiency, while also delivering health and wellbeing benefits and an enhanced fan experience.
Max Paulsen, Director, Business Development, NHL, said:
The NHL is committed to advancing sustainable business practices and reducing the environmental impact of all levels of hockey for future generations of players and fans. Upgrading to LED and connected lighting is better for our planet – and offers a practical and cost-effective solution for rinks across North America.
Through our partnership with Signify, rink owners will have the opportunity to reduce operational costs, streamline maintenance and focus resources on improving the holistic, in-venue experience. We are thrilled to name Signify the Official Lighting Partner of the NHL and look forward to working together to support facilities’ switch to sustainable lighting solutions.
Signify offers custom lighting services to help sporting venues assess their current equipment and create a plan according to their needs, whether it’s a retrofit upgrade or installing a new connected lighting system like Interact Sports.
Signify also provides high-quality lamps, luminaires and software for a range of indoor and outdoor applications, from UV-C disinfection lighting to help disinfect locker rooms to colour-changing exterior façade lighting to excite spectators.
Martin Stephenson, Head of North American Systems & Services, Signify, said:
We are proud to partner with the NHL and bring better, sustainable lighting solutions to hockey facilities across North America. Together, we can have a positive impact on the sport’s environmental footprint and on all who play and enjoy the game.
