Samsung Announces Sustainability Vision for Mobile: Galaxy for the Planet
Samsung has unveiled Galaxy for the Planet, the sustainability platform for its Mobile Communications Business powered by its scale, innovation and spirit of open collaboration, to take tangible climate actions across its business. Samsung has established an initial set of targets to be reached by 2025 to reduce its environmental footprint and lessen resource depletion from production to disposal of its Galaxy products.
Samsung believes the integration of sustainable practices across each stage of production is crucial to minimising environmental impact and building a better future for communities around the world and the next generation of innovators. Samsung will work to achieve its initial goals by 2025, and it will aim to evolve its commitments to address new challenges beyond 2025.
- Incorporate recycled material in all new mobile products by 2025
- Eliminate all plastics in mobile packaging by 2025
- Reduce standby power consumption of all smartphone chargers to below 0.005W by 2025
- Achieve zero waste to landfill by 2025
Samsung will continue to discover new ways to address the climate crisis and expand its role in accelerating progress to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. The company is dedicated to reporting progress transparently and working with industry peers and partners throughout its sustainability journey.
Samsung’s products are thoughtfully designed to minimise the impact on the environment during their entire lifecycle – including power-efficient semiconductor chips, sustainable packaging, energy-saving technology and the ability to upcycle old devices.
