Light improves health and well-being

Industrialization impacts the environment and human beings. OSRAM products help to protect our natural environment and promote our health. This applies, among other things, to the purification of air and water as well as the cultivation of plants using artificial light. Helping people to increase their efficiency and ability to regenerate is also a part of this topic. And our LEDs reduce the amount of energy consumed by light.

OSRAM enables urban farming, the cultivation of plants in the middle of the city. With special "light recipes" we control how fast and how tall plants grow or how sweet or intense they taste. Without genetic engineering, only with light. NASA and OSRAM are currently researching how salad production in space can be used to supply astronauts. This knowledge can also serve as a basis for urban food supply in the future.

The New OSRAM - Health & Well-being

Our mission - Well-being and Health

Main areas of health and well-being

Light is a source of vitality. OSRAM explores this energy to allow people to live healthier lives. We are developing new ways of accessing medical support, protecting and maintaining good health, and living self-determined and confidently. This includes the design of suitable lighting for increasing productivity and the enjoyment of life. We concentrate on these main topics:

  • Human Well-Being: Light enhances medical technology and patient regeneration, screens vital and fitness data and analyses the quality of food.
  • Environmental Health: Light supports plant growth in urban spaces and improves the quality of air and water.
  • Energy Efficiency: LEDs and smart lighting control reduce the societal energy demand.
