Offering transparency through LCA – we have a vast number of EPDs
We offer a comprehensive range of EPDs for a wide range of German-made building materials. Offering transparency through LCA, specifiers are in an informed position to reduce environmental impacts by calculating embodied carbon, eliminating toxic materials, and understanding the ‘Cradle to Grave’ impact of their chosen materials. Under the new nZEB building regulations, the carbon embodied in building materials will account for up to 50% of the total life cycle carbon emissions of the homes and buildings designed. By 2050 we need to reduce the carbon emissions from the construction and operation of buildings to zero including materials. SMET’s online EPD Platform published by the IGBC offers this comparative ability in decision-making.
Quality, Environment, and Health are at the forefront of what we do
We recognise as a supplier of superior quality building products and services, we must ensure our operations are carried out to the highest of standards. In order to achieve this, we operate a BSI-registered ISO 9001: 2015 Quality Management System, BSI registered ISO 14001: 2015 Environmental Management System, and a BSI-registered ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management System.

We have integrated training seamlessly into our workplace culture. We have created a working environment that is safe, conducive to our employee’s health and well-being, environmentally friendly, and focused on quality.
The selective hydraulic strength development of NHL binders makes them particularly suitable for producing lime mortars for masonry work, rendering, and plastering on historical buildings and monuments.
Our comprehensive range of NHL restoration and preservation products, combined with exceptional technical support and aftercare, are the key drivers in the selection of SMET natural conservation products.
