We care for our environment
As a company A.O. Smith wants to contribute to a better environment. Therefore we closely follow, with various industry related associations, all developments of the European Union’s legislation and guidelines. The last couple of years a lot of effort was put into integrating the Ecodesign Directive. Being part of this process enabled us to implement this knowledge directly to our internal improvement process. Most of our products are far ahead of the Ecodesign guidelines. Naturally, product improvement doesn’t stop here. Our R&D department will remain to research even more environmentally friendly technologies to implement in our products.
