As part of its ‘Going Green’ vision, 11 of Samsung’s 2022 Neo QLED TVs, will carry Reducing CO2 certifications from global consultancy group, Carbon Trust in recognition of its efforts to reduce the products’ carbon footprint.

According to Samsung, nine of the 11 models across the 2022 line up will be available in Australia including three Neo QLED 8K models, three Neo QLED 4K models, two QLED models, two Lifestyle TV models and one Crystal UHD TV model, that obtained the certification by reducing the weight of the product and the power consumption during the use phase.

Samsung said it is committed to not only driving product innovation but also shaping and implementing environmental sustainability technologies. At CES 2022, Samsung unveiled its vision of ‘Together for Tomorrow’, highlighting a commitment to creating a sustainable future and driving collaboration as part of the global community to preserve the planet.

As part of the initiative, Samsung’s Visual Display Business is set to use around 30 times more recycled plastics to produce its display products than it did in 2021. Samsung also plans to expand the use of recycled materials in all its mobile and home appliance products by 2025.

In addition, Samsung has been adopting sustainable practices to minimise the environmental impacts throughout its products’ lifecycles. The company’s ‘Eco-Packaging’ program, which allows consumers to upcycle packaging for TV products into versatile pieces of furniture, has been upgraded with product packaging using 90% less ink while also removing the staples during production.

Samsung has expanded the SolarCell Remote, which eliminates battery waste with built-in solar panels, to all TV models in 2022 and also developed and applied a new material, made with repurposed ocean-bound plastics, to reduce marine waste.
