As Samsung is a global company, the U.S. is an important market for us, and our evolving sustainability approach reflects our dedication to being a responsible business – both within the U.S. and around the world.
This toolkit is a reference guide highlighting how everyday changes, at Samsung’s scale, result in a meaningful impact on our environment. Our holistic approach addresses sustainability at every stage of our product’s lifecycle. Highlights include:
Our thoughtfully designed and built products help customers live a more sustainable life. We also provide ways to close the loop on electronic waste. For instance, our Certified Re-Newed program gives older mobile devices new life, providing consumers the exceptional performance they expect from our products while avoiding up to 28X the carbon emissions of recycling or remanufacturing a device. And through our community engagement efforts, such as Solve for Tomorrow and Climate Superstars, we work to improve environmental literacy and support innovative solutions to address society’s greatest challenges – including climate change.
Samsung has a long history of sustainable action, and we’re proud of the strides we have made to enhance our positive impact. But we also recognize there is much more work to be done, and our business must continue adapting to changing societal and consumer needs. For instance, we are working to continue advances in product energy efficiency, expand our use of renewable energy, eliminate all single-use plastic from our mobile packaging by 2025, and recycle 7.5 million metric tons of e-waste and reuse 500,000 tons of recycled plastics globally in our products by 2030. We are committed to driving positive changes across our operations while meeting the needs of our consumers.
