World-class Systems, Sustainable Solutions
Samsung practices environmental responsibility throughout our operations, striving to produce premium, environmentally friendly climate systems.
Doing Our Part For The Planet
Samsung Electronics Air Conditioner Europe B.V. strives to reduce the environmental impact of all its products, engaging in various initiatives within Europe like EPEE (European Partnership for Energy & the Environment) and EHPA (European Heat Pump Association).
Reducing F-gas Emissions
Based on the ground-breaking EU legislation aimed at reducing F-gas emissions, Samsung added a new type of refrigerant to its residential air conditioners. With a low GWP of 675, R32 is a sustainable solution for the air conditioning industry.
Managing Our E-waste
To fulfil our environmental obligations, Samsung has established take back systems that comply with existing recycling laws, like the WEEE (Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment) Directive – regulation that sets e-waste collection, recycling and recovery targets.
The Battery Directive
Samsung complies with the EU’s Battery Directive – legislation which regulates the manufacturing and disposal of batteries.
We conform to the packaging compliance scheme of each country in which Samsung products are sold. Through these initiatives, we ensure that wherever possible, packaging from our products is reused, recovered or recycled free-of-charge to all consumers.
Voluntary labels identify products so consumers can easily find them. Samsung has obtained one of the highest numbers of externally verified certifications in the global electronics industry.
