2023 saw exciting advancements in our sustainable lighitng solutions, with the launch of the industry's first Grade A LED Ribbin Tape. Exclusively available through Applelec, this super high efficiency ribbon tape has multiple benefits including:

  • 131% increase in ov erall efficiency

  • Up to 50% energy saving/running costs

  • 2 watts per meter

  • 227 lm/W

  • 20% increase in brightness

  • one tree planted with every order




The first of its kind!

This year we launched our next generation, eco-friendly light panel, Green Applelec LED Light Sheet 2.0, the first and only, UK manufactured light panel embedded with Grade A LEDs. Featuring the same eco friendly properties as its predecessor, Green Applelec LED Light Sheet 2.0's Grade A LEDs provide an impressive 35% energy saving when compared to Geade B LEDs. Exclusively available through Applelec, our environmentally friednly light panel helps facilitate more eco conscious schemes.


The Applelec Forest


Alongside planting a tree with every eco signage and lighting order, in 2023 the Applelec team started an internal initiative to use the ECOSIA internet browser to offset the carbon footprint of our delivery van, aiming to plant 288 trees in 2023. The team smashed this target, planting an amazing 424 trees. Add to this our yearly donation to JUST ONE Tree in place of sending a Christmas Card, plus sales of our ECO product range, takes the total number of trees currently in the Applelec forest to an amazing 882! We couldn't be prouder of everyone's efforts, and we look forward to seeing what we can achieve together in 2024.
