The enthusiasm for healthier buildings has aligned with advances in LED technology, controls and research exploring the human biological response to light. This alignment has led to a rise in health claims related to lighting, yet there is still much to learn regarding the relationship between light and human biology. This webinar will look back at the background of circadian metrics, and look forward to the opportunities and challenges facing the future development and implementation of circadian metrics in the built environment.
