At ruwido, we are convinced, that for creating a liveable future, immediate action is essential. We have taken action and have created a remote control as sustainable as possible, that is generating 70% less CO2 compared to a traditional one manufactured in Asia.
It is a future-proof product architecture for the next decade.
Our innovative product architecture is built without using silicone, printing, lacquering or plastics made from harmful materials. With this and a significant reduction in components, our carbon footprint is now 70% smaller, leading the way to a healthy and sustainable living for all.
Our new architecture not only addresses the urgent issue of rising temperatures caused by excessive CO2 emissions, but also eliminates often overlooked harmful substances found in inks and lacquers, ensuring the well-being of both humans and the environment.
In order to enhance a product's environmental performance, it is crucial to prioritize extending its lifespan during the development process. Although high-quality products may appear more expensive initially, they prove to be more cost-effective over their entire lifespan, thanks to reduced support costs.
With minimal return rates, this approach not only leads to economic and ecological savings in replacement products, but also ensures high customer satisfaction.
We strongly believe that producing our remote controls in Austria is the optimal way to uphold our exceptional quality and sustainability standards.
Since 2012, our energy has come exclusively from local renewable sources, with 85% generated through water, 10% through wind, and 5% from other. By having all stages of design, development, and manufacturing take place in one location, we can ensure that our remote controls are crafted using only renewable energy, under excellent working conditions, and with the highest quality standards.
