Our Products

Cree LED lighting products are created with energy-efficiency in mind. Not only do Cree LEDs use less energy to produce the same amount light as a traditional bulb, they also produce less heat, saving energy on air conditioning. Cree continues to innovate to create the most efficient lighting products on the market because Cree understands that saving energy also means fewer GHG emissions and more money in your pocket.

Our Manufacturing

Cree recognizes the future possible environmental, social, and economic impacts associated with climate change and increasing energy demands. In addition to providing energy efficient products, we strive to reduce GHG emissions and improve energy efficiency at all Cree sites.


EP100 is a global, collaborative initiative of influential businesses that pledge to double their energy productivity.

Cree has doubled its manufacturing energy productivity from 2011 to 2014, and has pledged through EP100 to double it again by 2020. We measure our energy productivity in terms of our product output: lumens produced per unit of energy consumed during manufacturing. Cree achieved its EP100 goal for lighting products in 2017. A new company-wide goal is currently being developed.


CDP runs a global disclosure system of self-reported environmental data.

In 2016, Cree disclosed its company-wide GHG emissions and climate change risks and opportunities to CDP for the first time. We will continue calculating our GHG emissions in the future because measuring GHG emissions helps us recognize and work toward lowering our impact.
