These awards include an 8th consecutive Gold Tier Award for Samsung’s leadership in responsible recycling of e-waste and a new Sustainable Excellence Award across the United States.
However, the company collects and recycles an average of 100 million pounds of e-waste a year in the US. And Samsung has an aggressive goal of adding 500,000 tons of recycled plastic to our products worldwide by 2030.
In addition to the legacy of our SMM innovations over the years, the EPA Sustainable Excellence Award recognizes Samsung’s SolarCell Remote, which was launched in early 2021 and is designed to help reduce battery waste and close the loop on plastic waste.
Moreover, the innovation currently available with Samsung 4K and 8K QLED (Neo, Q80A, Q70A, Q60A) and MicroLED TVs – eliminates the disposal of 99 million AA batteries and is expected to eliminate 5,840 tons of GHG over a seven-year period.
What’s more, in January 2022, Samsung unveiled the breakthrough in the second generation of its solar cell remote, which can now power devices such as Wi-Fi routers from radio frequencies. The remote is also included in more Samsung products such as new Samsung TVs and home appliances, all aimed at disposing of more than 200 million AA batteries from landfills.
