Over recent years it has become more and more apparent that our world is rapidly changing due to the effects of climate change and if we don’t act now, irreversible damage will be done. To deal with this huge task, we need look at the various ways we can reduce our carbon footprint, become more eco-friendly and produce less waste.
Smeg is committed to sustainable working, with numerous policies designed to target ongoing improvement including the use and recycling of materials, natural and renewable resources, minimisation of waste, as well as responsible design. Smeg has even received the Green Stars award because of its commitment to the environment.
Most Smeg spare parts are readily available and this results in many appliances being repaired, a proactive measure aimed at reducing the amount of electrical waste going into landfill. In a bid to tackle this even further, the UK government has enforced a new law, the ‘right to repair’, which Smeg welcomes and supports.
