We have committed to ambitious Net Zero targets that align us with the UN’s critical global climate objectives and the ambition to limit global warming to 1.5°C.


Our unique engineering capabilities and pioneering spirit position Smiths strongly to support customers on their journeys to decarbonise and deliver next-generation efficient and sustainable infrastructure and processes.


Natural resources are finite, and we believe that all businesses have a responsibility to use them respectfully and safely – responsibly sourcing, minimising consumption and preventing pollution.


Continual assessment and management of risks, and assurance through internal controls, is an integral part of day-to-day operations at Smiths.


Behaving ethically and with integrity is a fundamental part of our culture. We also operate in some highly regulated markets and sectors which require strict adherence to local and international industry regulations.


Good quality, ethical and effective decision-making builds sustainable businesses and enables them to create long-term value for all stakeholders.
