GAP Lighting Limited

Corporate Responsibility Policy

Philosophy

GAP Lighting Ltd is a family owned business established in 1999 and is a leading manufacturer of LED lighting solutions. GAP Lighting is committed to fair and ethical trading and we ensure that all our factories maintain the highest possible standards of staff welfare and Health and Safety supporting the development of the communities in which we operate. As a company we insist that all our suppliers operate in a fair and reasonable way and treat their staff with respect. We will not tolerate any abuse of employee rights and will take all necessary steps to ensure our factories and suppliers do not breach the Ethical Trading Initiative Base Code concerning workers rights.

GAP Lighting is also committed to protecting the environment and takes all necessary steps to minimize the impact on the environment of our manufacturing and the transportation of our products. All our products are energy saving and made from responsibly sourced materials. We have a policy of continual improvement of our products to ensure they are as energy efficient as possible to further reduce the emission of greenhouse gases produced from the generation of electricity. We keep packaging to a minimum level to protect the products whilst being transported and thereby reducing waste from damages.

GAP Lighting supports Christian Aid promoting fair business practices and ethical international trade.
