Environment and Sustainable Development

We believe it is our obligation to future generations and to planet Earth to minimize the impact and ecological footprint of our human and business activities. Therefore, at Articae Smart Technologies we strive to respect the environment by reducing the use of resources and energy, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

To this end, we promote the recycling of materials, teleworking and the use of digital and telematic media, thus saving paper, print cartridges and unnecessary travel. In addition, we believe that reducing energy consumption is the only path to energy sustainability. Therefore, energy efficiency is one of our company’s raisons d’être. We help our customers to make good use of energy, while at the same time making sure that we save energy ourselves, in a process of continuous improvement to achieve a rational use of our resources.


At Articae Smart Technologies we believe in innovation not as a destination but as a path:

  • creating innovative products and services with the highest possible quality standards,
  • investing in the continuous training of employees and the promotion of new ideas in order to develop opportunities,
  • fostering internal and external synergies and human interaction as a source of innovation through teamwork,
  • bringing added value to our customers through our products and services, together with our professional experience, our know-how, our imagination and our creativity,
  • opening our focus, observing our environment with an eye on the future horizon.

Ethical and Professional Conduct

We are living in times of change. On the one hand, we are immersed in a technological and digital revolution and an accelerated globalization process. On the other hand, we are affected by an unprecedented economic crisis resulting from the current healthcare situation, when we had barely overcome the previous recession period. All this means that the so-called knowledge society demands transparency and ethical and professional behavior in business.

At Articae Smart Technologies we want to make sure that business ethics are present in our daily work. We are committed with ourselves, with our partners, customers and suppliers and with society to adopt behaviors, not only legal but also ethical, for the benefit of all and for the common good. Furthermore, legal and contractual requirements will of course be strictly respected and observed, ensuring that any changes to the terms of agreements are reported at an early stage and maintaining fluid communication with our customers.
