The Street Lighting Energy Efficiency Programme, which is forecast to deliver savings of £1.2bn while saving 2.6 million tonnes of CO2 emissions throughout Scotland over the next 20 years, picked up the prize for sustainability at the annual Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation (CIHT) awards. 

Funded by Scottish Government, the programme has been led by Scottish Futures Trust as a partnership with Scottish local authorities, Zero Waste Scotland, the Society of Chief Officers of Transportation in Scotland, Scotland Excel, and Scottish Enterprise.

Marissa Lippiatt, Head of Resource Efficiency for Zero Waste Scotland, said: “We work to create a society where resources are valued and nothing is wasted.  To do that, we work across a range of sectors on programmes which exemplify and help bring important resource efficiency principles to life.

“Investment in sustainable LED lighting delivers significant, long-term environmental and cost benefits. That’s why we’re delighted to have worked with Scottish Futures Trust and others to put this forward-thinking approach to street lighting into practice across Scotland.  It’s great to have the impact of this work recognised across the UK.”
