    Samsung has been taking progressive efforts toward adopting business models for better climate sustainability. It was even ranked at the 6th position (out of 50) in BCG’s 2022 list of “Most Innovative Companies.” The company is also committed to the collection of mobile waste and now has installed its mobile waste collection box called “Eco Box” in 34 countries across the globe, including the US, Brazil, and Spain.

    Taking a step forward, Samsung wants to install more of these mobile waste collection boxes in all 180 countries around the world where Samsung products are sold. The company wants to achieve this goal by 2030. Using these Eco Boxes, cellphone waste is separated and recycled. Customers can use the Eco Box to conveniently dispose of their mobile phones through service centers and participate in and contribute to the fight against climate change.

    Samsung has replaced plastic packaging with eco-friendly packaging

    As noted in the official blog, Samsung service centers in countries such as Germany and the UKare providing ‘Eco Delivery' using bicycles or electric vehicles to deliver repaired products to the customer's desired location.” There is a single-unit repair service operating in 36 countries and applied to TV subsidiaries globally that reduces e-waste by retaining usable parts as much as possible during a repair.

    This year, Samsung has also established the usage of a “paper-free system”  that reduces the use of paper and instead uses electronic document prints in service centers, and eco-friendly packaging for service materials transported across the globe.

    Shipping boxes are also made up of “materials applied with sustainable forest certification activities,” plastic tapes have been replaced with paper tapes, carry bags are replaced with recycled synthetic resin bags, among other things.
