‘Schre-viours’: See it to believe it

With rising energy costs there has never been a better time to review your lighting costs and consider the opportunities that are available to lower them. Depending on your existing luminaire technology and control system, savings of up to 80% are achievable. Over the last 12 months we have helped over 30 schools and campuses improve not only their annual running costs but also deliver real improvements to the learning environment, attracting great reactions!

‘The new lighting is good; the quality of light diffusion and the light levels are brilliant. We can alter the light levels to suit the specific requirements of the spaces. I would definitely recommend them.’

Future proof: Schréder EXEDRA

Schréder’s EXEDRA is the most advanced remote lighting management system on the market that paves the way for further reaching applications in a smarter city. It is a connected control solution through which we can ensure additional savings are secured, and as classrooms change in their needs – when educational leaders decide, different light levels can be provided. Using Schréder EXEDRA, we can remotely monitor, manage, and control our luminaires to continue to expand energy-saving activities and reduce or eliminate actions that waste energy.

However, we at Urbis Schréder are not just concerned about maximising energy savings and minimising carbon footprint. Our priority is always to ensure safety for people by providing the right light in all circumstances. Schréder EXEDRA integrates advanced features for programming the most efficient dimming profiles based on endless variables (calendar days, special events, seasons, etc) while providing safety, comfort, and a sense of well-being for people.

Together for our future:

Sustainability has been a topic close to the heart of the Schréder family shareholders for generations and featured strongly in our company’s mission statement. Our role as market leaders motivates us to take part in the global battle against climate change and contribute to a respectful economic development. We help communities face their biggest challenges, making the world more sustainable. In 2019, we formalised this commitment by conducting our first materiality assessment. Based on the materiality assessment, we developed a cohesive, company-wide sustainability strategy. We called it the “Together for our Future” project and launched it in early 2020. The project is structured around three axes encompassing the relevant and prioritised SDGs and targets:  

  • Together for our Planet
  • Together for our People
  • Together for our Community
