VIDEO from Medialink and Philips: A New Call-to-Action Supports the Adoption of More Energy-Efficient Lighting in North America

    NEW YORK, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- A congressional coalition of energy
 efficiency advocates announced plans for proposed legislative action for a
 major shift toward incorporating high-efficiency lighting technologies in
 home and office settings. The call-to-action was introduced by Philips
 Lighting North America, the Lighting Efficiency Coalition, Congressman Don
 Manzullo (R- Ill.) and Senator Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) to support the adoption
 of more energy- efficient lighting in North America.
      (See video from Philips (NYSE:   PHG) at:

     The Philips-led Coalition is seeking to phase-out inefficient lamps
 through the substitution of existing energy-efficient alternatives -- such
 as compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), halogen lamps, and light emitting
 diodes (LEDs). These bulbs are not only a better environmental choice than
 incandescent light bulbs, but are more energy-efficient to operate.
     By adopting the proposed call-to-action, Americans can make a
 significant economic and ecologically responsible impact on the
 environmental footprint of North America and the rest of the world.
