Samsung to utilize recycled materials in new mobile products by 2025

Samsung Electronics, the South Korean tech giant, has reportedly announced its plans to use recycled materials in all its new mobile products by the year 2025. This announcement is aligned with the firm’s goal to minimize environmental impact, reports suggest.

For the uninitiated, Samsung recently presented its novel sustainable vision for its mobile business under the name “Galaxy for the Planet”. The tech leader seemingly unveiled the new initiative at its Unpacked event alongside the launch of its new foldable smartphones.

As the first step towards its sustainability goal, Samsung would supposedly work on integrating recycled materials in all its new mobile products, cutting down its plastic usage in mobile packaging by 2025. The company stated that it is investing in novel and innovative “eco-conscious materials” for its products.

Samsung, which is one of the leading smartphone companies in the world, aims to attain zero standby power in its smartphone chargers to reach below 0.005 watts of energy consumption by 2025, reports claim.

Until now, the smartphone maker has been able to reduce its standby power consumption to 0.02 W in all its smartphone chargers, as per reliable sources.

Samsung would evidently attempt to minimize waste from its mobile worksites in order to divert all waste away from landfills by 2025.

It is worth noting that the company has also promised to curtail its “e-waste” generation by enhancing the product lifecycle as well as create processes through Galaxy Upcycling and trade-in programs.

Stephanie Choi, Head Of Marketing for Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics, affirmed the firm’s commitment to developing solutions that enable a better future for the people and the planet. 

However, the company knows it cannot achieve this feat alone, and the fight for the planet is not a competition, Choi added.

To realize its sustainability goals, Samsung has said that it would collaborate with peers and partners across the industry.
