As early as 2016, and as part of our energy and climate policy, the regular lights in our network have been completely replaced by LEDs, reducing our energy consumption and energy-related CO2 emissions by 50%. This makes us the first network in the world to be equipped solely with LEDs.

Our network lighting accounts for 19% of the electricity we consume. This is why we were very quick to turn to LED technology, which consumes two to three times less energy than incandescent lights while providing the same brightness, and lasts three times as long (five years). This means less waste is generated.
A LED (Light Emitting Diode) is an electrical component that emits light in response to the passage of an electric current.
Did you know?
light fittings have been equipped with LEDs, which is more than the number of public lights in the City of Los Angeles!
Today, our entire network of 303 metro stations and 65 train stations is equipped with LEDs. This means 300 km of corridors and 250,000 light fittings.
