Samsung Updates Eco-Initiatives
Samsung announced that the company has implemented new environmentally sustainable processes and initiatives, including low-impact product manufacturing practises and resource acquisition. These new changes join the company’s existing efforts to reduce its environmental footprint across its product portfolio.
As part of Samsung’s “Together for Tomorrow” vision, the company has applied recycled materials in its select monitor and digital signage products to minimise resource waste. Samsung is now using more recycled materials in its monitor and digital signage products, including the rear cover of its monitors and digital signage to increase resource circularity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The company reports that it has incorporated ecoconscious packaging featuring recycled materials in all signage products since 2021.
Samsung is reported to use a SoC (System on Chip) solution that, when applied to the monitors and signage, allows content to be displayed without any additional devices, saving both waste and energy. Additionally, the company has extended its product lifespan with enhanced durability to further minimise waste.
In recognition of its efforts for product efficiency, Samsung has earned an Energy Star certification, in addition to an EPEAT (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool) certification for its energy efficiency improvements and recycled plastic use in its 2022 Smart Signage lineup (QHB, QMB, QBB). In recognition of its global 2022 sustainability initiative, Samsung has been announced as the winner of ‘Sustainability Innovation of the Year’ at the AV News Awards on May 10.
“We are committed to ensuring everyday sustainability throughout our signage portfolio and playing a major role in reimagining a better planet,” said Hyesung Ha, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “As we are grateful for the recognition of our efforts, we plan to make each step count while we collectively change production practises for a sustainable future.”
