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.”
