We don’t wait for the solutions that will protect the future of audio, we develop them ourselves. We see the possibilities to design what’s best for the planet also better for the planet.
Recognizing that our solutions are being deployed and utilized worldwide on a continuous basis, it is our objective to minimize not only our direct environmental impact but also our broader, indirect influence. At AUDAC, we advocate for a more sustainable approach to designing solutions for future applications. This shift involves transitioning from a hardware-centric model to one centered around software.
This vision is founded on the development of products that are more adaptable, modular, and intelligent than ever before. This means that with AUDAC, you'll require fewer products to achieve the same outcome. Furthermore, you'll notice that new features are incorporated throughout the lifespan of your product, extending the longevity of your systems. This vision is also reflected in our 5-year warranty policy on all products.
However, our commitment extends beyond the 'why' and 'what' of our designs—it also encompasses the 'how'. One example of this is our modular and consistent approach to writing firmware and application software, ensuring that the products we design today serve as the foundational building blocks for tomorrow.

DO IT SUSTAINABLY (DOE MAAR DUURZAAM), is a Dutch television programme in which various developments and innovations within the sustainability sector are featured. The theme of the broadcast was Technology and Industry. An excellent opportunity for us to highlight the importance and applicability of AUDAC audio systems in new buildings and renovations.
Energy efficiency simply means using less energy to perform the same task. During the design process, we strive to achieve maximum results with our products using a minimal amount of energy. Several of our always-on products, for example, have been awarded the Energy Star label for their smart standby functions that reduce energy consumption when not in use. As our appliances are often never even switched off, this results in huge savings in both operational as in stand-by mode.
Energy-efficiency keeps being a priority during the planning phase of a sound installation. Combining the optimal sound dispersion of our loudspeakers with a strategic placement enables our team of professionals to create an impressive sound experience with the minimum amount of loudspeakers.
We live in exciting times. With the help of the accelerated digital evolution, we as audio specialists make sure that our products always have that slight edge over the rest. Even after the product already has been installed for quite some time. Our modular audio systems can be easily upgraded with interchangeable modules and software updates. This eliminates the need to buy a new device every time new technologies come onto the market.
Not only the technology behind our products is important, we also look at the way we manufacture and distribute our products. For the packaging of our products, we keep the use of plastic to an absolute minimum and instead opt for a completely naturally biodegradable cardboard.
We have made the size of our packaging as compact as possible to create an optimal transportation efficiency. This philosophy gets taken even further with our most recent ultra-compact products like the AMP203 and the MFA series, which decrease the amount of trucks needed for transportation even more.
AUDAC has recently acquired and cultivated 21 hectares of forest privately. Among these, some were formerly fields that have now been transformed into forests. These are now classified as category 3 forests, indicating that they will be preserved in their current state.
Throughout this initiative, over 6000 trees were planted. Additionally, certain areas of the forests now serve as vital pathways connecting larger forested areas for wildlife to traverse.
AUDAC is committed to advancing this effort by expanding and continually reforesting these lands.
As a proud family-owned enterprise, we embrace a long-term perspective that extends far beyond quarterly profits. This continuity in ownership allows us to make decisions that prioritize environmental and social responsibility, ensuring that we leave a positive legacy for generations to come. This commitment to sustainability also extends to our valued AUDAC partner network. By maintaining our familial roots, we foster enduring relationships built on trust, integrity, and shared values.
We’re not finished yet. It’s important that we keep searching for new ways to decrease our carbon footprint. Engage with us and tell us what you think we can do to help you and our planet. Together we are working towards a greener future!
