Smeg- Environment & Sustainability


Our Italian headquarters 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, not only its sympathetic design, but its use of sustainable resources, from rainwater harvesting through to the generation of solar energy.

Responsible design

Smeg's domestic appliances from ovens through to hobs, cookers through to dishwashers, washing machines to fridge freezers have all been designed with longevity in mind and to reduce environmental footprint where possible.

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 of Hazardous Substances) and REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical Substances), going further than just the minimum requirements.


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.
