Stoane Lighting appoint Irene as new Sustainability Lead

Back to all news

With a Chemistry doctorate, a Materials Science academic background and a passion for sustainability, Irene Mazzei PhD shaped her career to focus on practical issues, tackling environmental challenges and finding tangible solutions.

As part of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership between Stoane Lighting and Edinburgh Napier University, Irene added vital impact quantification to Stoane Lighting's sustainability strategy. She has also spent much of her time sharing her research with lighting designers, manufacturers, and practitioners across the wider built environment, focusing on the importance of harmonised environmental impact assessment strategies across the lighting industry.

As a natural follow-up from the Knowledge Transfer Partnership, in her new role as Stoane Lighting’s Sustainability Lead, she will continue to interface with national and international initiatives with the aim of promoting consistent and harmonised practices for the environmental assessment of lighting. Irene’s Materials Science background will conveniently merge with Life Cycle Assessment to advise the best solutions for sustainable design and manufacturing of lighting products.

In addition, Irene will lead on a Stoane Lighting environmental impact assessment service that they believe will be beneficial to lighting equipment specifiers. Irene can analyse the relative impacts of buying new over re-manufacturing, can provide detailed assessment of products and design details in order to quantify and reduce impacts at the specification stage. With a tremendous depth of knowledge on sustainability and Life Cycle Assessment, she can help with navigating terminology, standards and interpreting and comparing data.
