Smeg HQ has been named one of the most innovative sites in Italy thanks to its intelligent consumption management and sustainable development policies. In 2007 it won the Modena Domotics Competition, part of the "Bio-architecture Week" held in the city.

Responsible design

Smeg ovens, hobs, coffee machines, cookers, dishwashers, washing machines, washer-dryers, hoods, sinks, refrigerators and freezers are all designed with environmental considerations in mind.

The greatest emphasis is placed on the choice of materials, such as steel, glass, aluminium and brass, which can be easily recycled using carefully-planned separate collections.

In addition, Smeg fully complies with the stipulations of the EU directives RoHS (Restriction oHazardous Substances) and REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical Substances), going further than just the minimum requirements.

The RoHS directive places stringent restrictions on the use of hazardous materials and substances such as lead, cadmium, mercury, chromium VI, polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs).

The REACH regulation concerns the handling of chemical substances and aims to ensure that human health and the environment are protected to the fullest extent.


Smeg's commitment to the respect of the environment, as well as its attention to the social impact of its business, is reflected in its Quality, Environment and Health and Safety Policy and in the Management Systems it has adopted, which are certified in accordance with international standards UNI EN ISO 9001, ISO13485 (Quality Management System for Medical Devices), UNI EN ISO 14001 and ISO 45001.
