Since the 80s, even before the advent of the green economy, SMIT has taken steps to minimize emissions and to safeguard the health of its staff,  by banning in the plant the use of solvents and substances that were not environmentally friendly. In fact, throughout the course of preparation and painting of the looms,  water-based products are used .

Energy saving and pollution containment require from everybody the imperative of recycling: to help reduce both the consumption of raw materials and energy use by preventing the waste of potentially useful materials. In this field, Smit has always meticulously managed the disposal of all waste. In compliance with environmental regulations, the subdivision is for 36 different types, with the analysis of air emissions and wastewater.
