Eco Solutions

Samsung's Green Management Programme is a 'green' culture underpinned by ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001.

  • Our determination to evaluate and improve the eco-friendly nature of every stage of our business practice is key to our development of a robust and inclusive green philosophy.

    This benefits you by instilling in you the confidence that every aspect of the design, manufacturing and recycling processes of Samsung Printers meets the standard of our stringent quality certification programme.

    Environmental factors form an integral part of our product quality agenda. Our commitment to achieving recognised standards sends a clear and unequivocal message to our customers and stakeholders that we are striving to abide by environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes at every turn.

    Supplier Sites

    We only work with suppliers of raw materials and parts that have passed the Eco-Partner Programme. In addition, we work together with these companies to reduce the amount of hazardous substances in these raw materials and parts, helping them to set up environmental management systems.

    Qualified Certification

    ISO 9001 This globally-recognised standard for green quality control improves efficiency, resulting in less waste and enhanced productivity and service for our customers.

    ISO 14001 This is a commitment to monitoring and minimising our impact on the environment. In achieving this global standard, we have adopted a systematic approach to managing the effects of our business activities on the environment. We have learned how to use energy more efficiently and discovered how to minimise waste and dispose of it more effectively. With an open business culture, we have the capability to pass on this environmental learning to our customers.

    OHSAS 18001 The Occupational Health and Safety Management System is adopted right across our business. These three standards demonstrate a total commitment to quality, environmental awareness and health and safety in all of our manufacturing processes. They assure you that you are investing in products from a supplier which cares about the welfare of others, and which helps you reduce your own carbon footprint by introducing performance rooted in tough environmental standards.

  • We have developed a programme which gives customers ongoing support in their fight against climate change. In fact, we are an industry leader when it comes to adding new eco-friendly design features and manufacturing processes to our products. From energy-efficient design to user-friendly devices and recycling techniques, we take responsibility for every step of the journey.

    We first introduced Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) into the design process for our laser printers in 1999. The LCA enables us to analyse the environmental impact of our products at every stage, from development, usage and transportation through to disposal and recycling. Our LCA reassures our customers that we have planned an environmentally-conscious journey for our printers from the very first stage in the design process to the very last.

    Features and Benefits

    NO-NOIS™ Technology We always put our customers' peace of mind first when it comes to our products. Our NO-NOIS™ technology guarantees reduced noise pollution in the work area.

    Reliable and Efficient Products Our aim is to reduce all possible energy wastage in our products, and to minimise their strain on the environment. From the beginning of the product planning stage, we seek to comply with relevant green standards including the US Energy Star, the China Energy Mark and the Korea Energy Mark. By consequence, our printers reduce paper waste, extend toner use. They provide a reliable hardware platform that prolongs product lifetime and cuts IT capital costs. The Samsung e-standby mode, introduced in 2006, reduces energy to less than 8Wh for colour laser printers and 3Wh for mono laser printers.

    Resource Conservation Compact and lightweight products use fewer resources, both at the manufacturing stage and the end-of-life recycling stage. High energy efficiency is another integral design feature, as well as built-in reliability standards that prolong the product's useful life and save IT rollover costs.

    Reduced System Standby Power At Samsung, we have developed innovative technology that reduces system standby power. Samsung SMPS uses input power of less than 1W, while other printers require 3-10W. This benefits you by allowing you to save power.

    Colour Background Removal The Samsung Colour Background Removal feature reduces toner consumption by removing unwanted background colours from an image. When the original image contains a coloured background, this feature detects and removes the coloured background prior to printing. The feature lets you adjust the settings to achieve the desired results, allowing you to produce cleaner copies while saving time and toner.

    High Efficiency Scanner We have developed an LED scanner module that requires less than one second to warm up at the same time as providing clearer definition than existing CCFL or Xe lamp-equipped devices. It is also Mercury(Hg)-free. We can easily replace proprietary lamps with the LED module thanks to in-built device designs that allow the light source to change as new technology has emerged.

    AnyWeb Print Utility The Samsung AnyWeb Print solution allows you to easily crop and print any type of web content. It also helps you edit and save the content that you collect. With Samsung AnyWeb Print, you can print only the web content you want, saving toner and paper.

    Easy-Eco Driver, you'll be able to accurately preview your document before printing. Adjust colour quality and other settings to meet your requirements and budget, as well as removing unnecessary text, images and other elements. Reduce wasted printouts and achieve more economically efficient printing.

  • In 2004, we created the Eco Design System (EDS) to evaluate and improve our products' environmental standards more efficiently. With this system, targets for each category are set, beginning at the initial product development stage. They are followed by subsequent evaluation processes that ensure corrections are made wherever necessary.

    As well as raising the environmental quality of a product, the EDS inform stakeholders of the environmentally-friendly features of a product in a format that is easy to follow. The system links up to our quality certification system, allowing environmental factors to influence decisions on product quality.

    Features and Benefits

    Hazardous Waste Management With environmental issues at the top of the agenda, we choose to carry out the manufacturing processes of all printer consumables in a safe and eco-friendly manner,in accordance with international certification standards. To help safeguard our customers and the environment, Samsung Supplies comply with RoHS regulations concerning the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances that can be found in electrical and electronic equipment. These measures ensure that you are not exposed to hazardous substances when using our products, and guarantee that none will be released into the environment when the products are disposed of.

    Collecting and Recycling Programme Our Eco Design System (EDS) enables us to develop more environmentally-friendly products. Additionally, we always conduct a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to analyse the environmental weak points of a product during the design phase.
    We launched our Eco-Partner Programme in 2004 to help our collaborators set up environmental management systems that would assist in the controlling of hazardous substances in all parts and raw materials.
    We offer product-testing as well as training and consultation services to our Eco-Partners, who can gain certification to demonstrate that they have implemented adequate procedures and systems to control the processes used to source and produce parts and raw materials.

  • We are totally committed to the creation of safe, pollution-free, environmentally-conscious workplaces. From fire-prevention and health and safety training, to ongoing pollution monitoring and prevention, we have a completely green approach to the way we develop, design, manufacture, transport and, ultimately, dispose of our products.

    This commitment ensures that our own workplaces and those of our partners conform to the highest possible environmental standards.
