Founded on the belief that the natural night is a disappearing resource, IDA is the recognized authority on light pollution. Since 1988, IDA’s mission is to call attention to the hazards of light pollution. IDA guidelines seek to curtail and reverse degradation of the nighttime visual environment and the night sky, minimize glare and obtrusive light by limiting outdoor lighting that is misdirected, excessive, or unnecessary, and help protect the natural environment from the damaging effects of night lighting. They work with manufacturers, planners, legislators, and citizens to provide energy efficient options that direct the light where you want it to go, not uselessly up into the sky.
