Working together for a bright future
Together with other companies, industry associations, government and civil society organisations, we signed the covenant 'Together towards responsible metal chains'. The aim of the covenant is to promote international corporate responsibility. We do this by reducing human rights and environmental abuses in the metal sector.
By actively participating in the metals agreement, we take responsibility for all aspects of our production chain. By cooperating with other organisations, we can jointly tackle abuses in our chain.
By working with Smart-M, you are assured that your organisation is working with an honest organisation. Want to know more about the metal covenant?
Where does metal actually come from? How does metal affect the environment? Which people work in metal mining? What happens to our waste? All questions we do not have answers to at the moment, but questions we want answers to!

As Smart-M, we are involved in the Dutch Metal Covenant and actively shape this initiative. The Dutch Metal Covenant is a covenant that aims to promote sustainability and corporate responsibility in the metal sector. As Smart-M, we are committed to achieving positive change in our sector. We are committed to sustainability and social responsibility.
The Dutch Metal Covenant is a collaboration between government, business, and civil society organisations, aimed at improving environmental, ethical and social factors in the metal sector. This initiative encourages companies to follow responsible production and procurement practices, improve working conditions and reduce environmental impact. Moreover, it is also a pillar for raising awareness about the state of affairs beyond our immediate sphere of influence. As Smart-M, we embrace these objectives and are committed to complying with them.
Our contribution to the Dutch Metal Covenant is twofold:
Sustainable Production: We strive to make our production processes more sustainable. This includes reducing our direct CO2 emissions, minimising waste, and optimising our energy use.
Responsible material chain: We attach great importance to an ethical material chain. We work closely with our partners, both upstream and downstream to ensure they meet high standards in terms of working conditions, human rights and environmental responsibility. This includes promoting fair wages, safe working conditions, and avoiding raw materials from conflict zones.
As Smart-M, we believe that businesses play a crucial role in achieving a more sustainable future. We recognise that there is still much work to be done, but we are determined to continuously innovate and commit to positive change.
The Dutch Metal Covenant is therefore an opportunity to realise our vision of sustainable business. We are building a future where sustainability and responsibility are central, and we are proud to play a part in it.
