Adam succeeds Stefan Geissdörfer in this role. His appointment reflects LEDVANCE’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship. Reporting directly to Executive Senior Vice President Jue Wang, Adam is responsible for:

  • Corporate sustainability: overseeing reporting, taxonomy, and compliance.
  • Product-related sustainability initiatives: enhancing the sustainability of the LEDVANCE product portfolio.
  • Security, environment, health, and safety: ensuring safe and environmentally responsible operations.

In his new role, Adam will define strategic sustainability goals and targets for LEDVANCE, continuing to build on the company’s strong foundation in environmental responsibility.

Said Adam about his new role: “I am honored to take on the role of Senior Director of Global Sustainability at LEDVANCE. Our primary focus will be to drive sustainability initiatives that provide direct and meaningful benefits to both our customers and the environment. While maintaining rigorous reporting and compliance standards is essential, our ambition is to implement practical solutions that enhance the sustainability of our products and operations, making a significant positive impact on the planet.”
