We believe that profitability and growth can be achieved in a responsible manner. That is why sustainable business practices and the careful use of resources in all areas of SMC's business are an essential leitmotif. Because an ecologically and socially responsible action ensures future competence and innovative strength beyond the present generations.
In our responsibility as a corporate citizen, we as a company make an active contribution to the further development of society beyond the legal requirements. Our CSR activities are shaped in the triangle of the equally important areas of economy, social affairs and the environment.
Investment in the future
Encouraging and demanding the generations of tomorrow in order to advance the further development of our business location - that is our declared goal. Therefore, SMC supports ongoing and long-term projects of educational institutions such. For example in Austria, the Industry 4.0 apprentice competition and the proHTL initiative. In order to make a significant contribution to the education and training of young technicians, we share our know-how with the young generation of technicians. SMC provides equipment for automation laboratories, assists teaching staff in the creation of teaching materials, and in the design and delivery of training. Diploma theses and internships at SMC create the connection between theory and practice. Cooperation partners are in Austria - among others - bfi, FH Technikum Vienna, HTL Hollabrunn, TGM Vienna, andWifi.
Whether it's corporate donations or targeted employee actions, SMC shares its economic success with those who need help. For years, SMC has been a reliable supporter of - for example in Austria - the Lower Austrian Lebenshilfe, "Mission Hoffnung", the "Schulsporthilfe" and "Licht für Kinder". But also in the sports sector, SMC is involved as a sponsor of the children and youth work of the Viennese handball club FIVERS Margareten.
Our clear goal is to constantly improve the environmental friendliness of our products and services and to support our customers in the design of sustainable automation solutions. SMC offers its partners training through to audits to promote "green" production. At SMC in Korneuburg, a division dedicated to environmental management is constantly and sustainably dedicated to the topic. This ranges from optimized transport and packaging processes to environmentally friendly recycling and environmental protection right from the point of purchase to sustainable office and production buildings.
