Research & Development
In the financial year, the Zumtobel Group employed 512 people (FTE) in R & D.
One of the main focuses of R & D continues to be the technology shift, primarily driven by the development of light sources.
Possible environmental impacts are already taken into account in the development process.
The Zumtobel Group, with its brands, is the first company in the lighting industry to be able to offer EPDs in accordance with ISO 14025 and EN 15804 for all its new products.
These projects deal primarily with the effect of light on humans in a variety of applications.

Klaus Vamberszky, Executive Vice President Technology

»In the R&D sector our efforts are ­focused on lighting quality, ­energy ­efficiency, intelligent controls and ­materials. That way we can build sustainability into the innovation process.«
