Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced that six models in its 2023 Neo QLED lineup have achieved the ‘Reducing CO2’ certification from the Carbon Trust. This label is awarded to a product when its carbon footprint is proven to have been reduced year on year, a testament to Samsung’s efforts to enhance sustainability throughout the entire product lifecycle.
“It’s rewarding to see Samsung’s sustainability mission recognized by a trusted organization, as we remain committed to creating products with the future of our planet top of mind,” said Seokwoo Yong, Executive Vice President and Deputy Head of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “As the world’s largest TV manufacturer, we recognize our responsibility to lead by example and will continue to leverage technology to drive positive change.”
The Carbon Trust is a global climate consultancy founded by the UK government with the mission to respond to climate change and reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs). The organization calculates its carbon footprint certification by evaluating the amount of GHG generated throughout the entire product lifecycle, ranging from production to disposal, based on internationally recognized standards. Notably, the label does not take CO2 offsets into consideration.
The 2023 Neo QLED models obtained the certification in recognition of Samsung’s efforts to reduce the products’ weight and their power consumption during the use phase when compared to their predecessors. The six certified models include three Neo QLED 8K and three Neo QLED 4K screens . As Samsung aims to expand the scope of these efforts, it expects to earn carbon footprint certification for more than 20 models this year across its latest lineup of QLED, Crystal UHD, and OLED TVs, as well as monitors and signage products.
In 2021, Samsung Neo QLED became the first screen to receive the certification among 4K and higher resolution TVs. The following year, 16 models across Samsung’s 2022 lineup, including 11 models from the QLED, Crystal UHD, and Lifestyle TV range, as well as five monitors and signage products, also obtained the certification.
As the global TV leader for the 17th consecutive year, Samsung’s Visual Display Business continues to introduce eco-conscious products and practices for its display products.
