SmartEco

At HMY we want to be the driving force behind the transformation of future retail and for this it is vital to have a positive social impact on people and the environment.

Our goal is to achieve a sustainable retail that is beneficial to the planet, committed to society and profitable for companies.

We are differentiated by our commitment to value engineering with sustainable objectives.
This is how SmartEco was born.

What is SmartEco?

It is our specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and over time commitment that seeks efficiency in the supply chain of the products we develop for our clients. This evolves towards a sustainable production model based on the circular economy and conceptualized from ecodesign.
