With its solar cells, Wi-Fi and mobile device charging, the Steora smart bench Steora provides a excellent user experience while its lighting system creates a safer environment.

So what is Greentech, really? According to Per Järnebrink, CEO of EWF ECO, it is more of an attitude than a product.
-For me, Greentech is more a consistent sustainable business vision, which characterises a whole production model with the goal of improving the environment. At EWF, we include an assessment of environmental impact in each of our product processes.
Smart City Solutions
EWF ECO recently signed an agreement with the start-up company Include. The agreement covers the sale and marketing of the smart bench Steora (or star in latin). As previously mentioned, the bench combines solar cells, Wi-Fi, mobile device charging, and lighting.
– Steora which product fits well in the EWF ECO's thoughts on smart city solutions, where we as a vision to improve the street and park environments for cities, municipalities and commercial partners. The bench provides very social services as it provides a sense of security to the surroundings. Today, we rely on all our products, such as mobile phones, tablets and computers. Steora provides easy access to both Wi-Fi and charging for all, out in nature and areas of social interaction.
– When we talk about sustainability on EWF ECO we mean everything from economic, social and environmental sustainability. A product or service is not sustainable for real if it does not manage to cover all three. It is through all three as a product in the end can be classed as Greentech.
EWF ECO working a lot with products designed to provide the public with an added value beyond the basic functionality. A good example of what it is, is their dustbin BigBelly. Bigbelly is a waste and recycling systems that can solve the problem of managing waste in public environments.
– We installed the BigBelly in Norrmalm in Stockholm and has so far managed to reduce the transport of over 90 percent. The annual haul, for garbage trucks, dropped from 41 000 kilometers to today's 3 100 kilometers. Carbon dioxide emissions decreased by approximately 35 tonnes. With Sweden's new energy goals in mind, we would be able to provide considerable help on the way, just by swapping out some trash cans.
EWF ECO has the business model to introduce, establish and deliver smart Green & sustainable solutions to public and commercial partners in the Nordic region, primarily. Starting in 2012, the EWF ECO AB sold the product, BigBelly Solar, as exclusive distributor of BigBelly Solar Inc. Agency covers except Finland Sweden also & Norway.
