Right to Daylight

Eneref Launches #RightToDaylight to Advance Daylighting as a Right

Natural interior daylight in the home and workplace offer a healthier environment. Research has demonstrated that people function better under natural lighting conditions that align with our circadian rhythm.

Everyone has the right to “favorable conditions at work,” according to Article 23 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Further, the UN Human Rights Council “Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights,” (as proposed by UN Special Representative John Ruggie) declares that “business enterprises” should respect human rights.

That is why Eneref Institute launches a new campaign, #RightToDaylight.
