Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, and the National Hockey League (NHL) recently announced their partnership to help the more than 4,800 ice rinks across North America, from major venues to community facilities, switch over to sustainable LED and connected lighting.

‘signify’ stated that these solutions can help the hockey industry reduce its environmental footprint by improving energy efficiency, while also delivering health and wellbeing benefits and providing an enriching and exalted experience to fans.

The National Hockey League (NHL) is a professional ice hockey league in North America, currently comprising 31 teams: 24 in the United States and 7 in Canada.

‘signify’ quoted Max Paulsen, Director, Business Development, NHL, as asserting, “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.”

Added Paulsen, “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 Preferred Lighting Company 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 setting up 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 lighting to help disinfect locker rooms to color-changing, exterior façade lighting to thrill spectators.

‘signify’ further stated that LED and connected lighting can help reduce the carbon footprint, energy consumption and operational costs of sports facilities Martin Stephenson, Head of North American Systems & Services, Signify, maintained, “We are proud to partner with the NHL and bring better, sustainable lighting solutions to hockey facilities across North America.
