Rako Controls creates environmentally friendly brochure

Smart lighting controls manufacturer, Rako Controls has launched its new brochure for 2023, but this year the company has focused making it sustainable and environmentally friendly.

While offering an overview of the Rako product range, including multiple user interfaces from the refreshed app to the extensive choice of keypads available, the brochure features insights, innovative products, technical information and case studies.

It also demonstrates the application of Rako’s products and wired and wireless systems through helpful illustrations and project examples.

Sustainability was of upmost importance to the company, conscious that printed material can be less desirable. Therefore, Rako printed the finished brochure on recycled paper stock and made it a carbon neutral print product. It is also wrapped in a compostable sleeve which can be disposed of with food waste or in a compost bin.

“This brochure means a lot to us,” said Paul Wafer, director of Rako. “A lot of hard work has gone into creating it and careful thought has been put into how it has been printed. Sustainability is important to our customers and to their clients and it has made us think about what we are doing ourselves, not just for the brochure but as a company as well.”

Rako intends to continue making its company more sustainable and has highlighted within the brochure the ongoing initiatives it is doing to lessen its impact on the environment, which includes removing polystyrene chips, bubble wrap and plastic tape from its consignment packaging and replacing them with recycled paper alternatives.

Currently, 79% of the company leased vehicles are either fully electric or hybrid and the company also offers employees a ride to work scheme to encourage employees to cycle into work if they are within cycling distance. By spring 2023, solar panels will also be installed across Rako’s offices and manufacturing facility increasing its use of green energy.
