Our commitment to a greener planet
Sustainability at SMART
From the way we design our products to our corporate commitments, we take our environmental responsibility seriously. Check out some of the ways we’re working to reduce our carbon footprint.
What environmental responsibility looks like at SMART
Sustainability is a core value.
Within every part of our organization, we consider the economic, social, and environmental impact of our products and services. From a product’s initial design phase to its end of life, we’re driven to make the environment better and our operations and supply chains more green.
We source our minerals responsibly.
SMART is committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values on human rights, ethics, and environmental responsibility. We’re diligent about working with suppliers that source conflict-free minerals.
We prioritize human rights standards.
All our suppliers and sub-suppliers must sign our Supplier Code of Conduct, which requires adherence to acceptable working conditions, human rights, health and safety, and environmental and ethical standards.
Displays designed with the planet in mind
Our displays are designed to save energy.
Built-in sensors allow our displays to wake up and sleep automatically, depending on usage. Plus a full range of adjustable settings allow users to reduce power consumption and overall carbon footprint.
Lower energy costs = better return on investment.
Exceptional energy efficiency lowers both your operating costs and your carbon footprint, making SMART interactive displays a friendlier choice for the environment and for your budget over time.
SMART initiatives you need to know about
Not only do we use recyclable materials for our packaging, we also work to reduce waste by using only the minimum amount of packaging necessary.
Slimline Packaging Initiative
We’ve optimized our packaging design so more SMART products fit in our shipments, greatly reducing our overall carbon footprint. Fewer shipments means less fuel required for delivering SMART products to our customers around the world.
Certified commitment to the environment
Our certifications and standards compliance are one indicator of how SMART takes our responsibility seriously. Here’s how we’re reducing our carbon footprint in every area of our organization.
- ISO 14001 certified
- LEED certified
- ENERGY STAR® certified
- EU EcoDesign compliant
- Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) compliant
- Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant
Our displays are built to last
SMART displays last longer
SMART displays feature significant lifespan: our displays are built to last 50,000 hours.
Exceptional quality means fewer replacements
Our products undergo rigorous Accelerated Life Testing for extreme temperature, humidity, and voltage testing. This means our products break less, lowering e-waste and reducing CO2 emissions caused by unnecessary replacement manufacturing and shipping.
