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.

Here is SMART's Conflict Minerals Policy

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

Recyclable packaging

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

Environmental Footprint Measurement and Certification

SMART is committed to reducing our environmental impact. The first step on this journey is setting a rigorously measured baseline certified by a third party.

We want to share our journey with you. Here are SMART’s environmental performance reports. They cover Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions and water use. They have been independently verified by UL®, one of the world’s most trusted names in certification.

We don’t stop there. We are launching an audit program to include reporting of our suppliers’ environmental performance.

EPEAT certification

As part of our holistic approach to sustainability, we are undertaking an initiative to get our products EPEAT silver certified.

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.
