Did Samsung just invent an environmentally friendly TV?

Published

on

Eight Samsung models from the 2024 editions of Neo QLED 4K, Neo QLED 8K, OLED, and The Frame TVs have been awarded the Product Carbon Reduction Certification by TÜV Rheinland.

This prestigious certification signifies that these TVs have significantly reduced their carbon footprint compared to their predecessors.

The evaluation process conducted by TÜV Rheinland assessed the greenhouse gas emissions associated with Samsung’s new TVs across their entire life cycle, including manufacturing, transportation, and disposal.

The evaluation was carried out in accordance with internationally recognized standards such as ISO 14067 and ISO 14064-4, as well as Samsung’s own standard: 2 PfG Q2880/09.23. Among the certified models are three Neo QLED 4K TV models, two Neo QLED 4K TV models, two OLED TV models, and one The Frame TV model.

Carbon footprint

Samsung is committed to sustainability and aims to achieve both ‘Product Carbon Footprint’ and ‘Product Carbon Reduction’ certifications for at least 60 soundbars and TVs from its 2024 lineup.

This dedication to reducing carbon emissions is evident in Samsung’s track record, with the company receiving the ‘Reducing CO2’ certification from TÜV Rheinland in 2021 and similar certifications for eleven TVs in 2022 and 24 TVs in 2023.

In addition to the Product Carbon Reduction Certification, Samsung’s Visual Display Business, which sells TVs, recently received the industry’s first ‘Product Carbon Footprint Calculation Method’ certification from TÜV Rheinland in the display and consumer electronics segment.

This certification ensures that greenhouse gas emissions are accurately measured throughout a product’s life cycle, providing transparent and reproducible results.
