Because sustainability and innovation improve all our lives, TLA is pleased to support the carbon-neutral shipping program from RBW.

As part of their continued sustainability efforts through their B Corp commitment, RBW is proud to announce that all orders will now ship carbon neutral!

Because helping you to achieve your project’s sustainability goals is important to the team at RBW, they have taken this first step towards exploring ways in which they can further their sustainable order fulfillment capabilities. When you design with RBW luminaires, you’re helping to make a net positive impact on the environment and the communities we live in.



TLA RBW Sustainable Shipping



RBW was founded on the belief that light can make a positive impact on our daily lives.

As their company continues to grow, they strive to make a positive impact on all of their stakeholders, including our customers, our employees, and our planet, too. In 2019, they achieved a major milestone on our journey by becoming a certified B Corporation, a new kind of company that balances profit with purpose.

As a B Corporation, they’re held to rigorous standards of ecological and social accountability, lighting the path to achieving their own long-term goals.

Through the integrity of their business, they work to empower our communities and strengthen the health of the environment, preserving our planet for generations to come.

RBW runs on kaizen, a philosophy of continuous improvement.

At its heart, kaizen is about eliminating waste at every level, from our energy consumption to our carbon emissions. It inspires RBW to seek more sustainable materials, energy-efficient technologies, and smarter production methods so that their customers can better achieve sustainability goals while completing projects.
