Eco-Friendly Monitors For a Greener, Smarter Future

Eco-Friendly Monitors For a Greener, Smarter Future


With leading-edge advancements designed to help users conserve energy, resources and costs, award-winning Samsung business monitors have tackled four components that make their monitors eco-friendly.

What are those four key pillars that make these Samsung monitors green? Take a look below and read about the innovative ideas that came to fruition today.

Energy-saving modes
The wealth of energy-smart features means less wasted energy in the workplace, translating to reduced overhead for an enhanced bottom line, not to mention environmental protection. This eco-minded feature allows you to reduce the monitor’s power consumption by up to 10%. Innovative technology automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen’s black sections while
simultaneously adjusting the RGB gain values, to compensate for the lower power usage without compromising picture quality. For screens with large amounts of black, SMART Eco Saving mode can result in energy savings of up to 15%. Samsung business monitors offer power-saving timer options, and once they’re off, they use zero watts of power. The goal is to ensure that not one watt is wasted.

Eco-friendly materials
Designed to help save the planet every Samsung product is designed to enhance users’ lives. That means Samsung wants them to be beautiful and long-lasting while in use, then be easily recycled after they’ve outlived their usefulness. Which, of course, contributes to a beautiful, long-lasting planet. Designed with the planet and eco-conscious consumers in mind, most Samsung business monitors are made of 30% recycled plastics. The lead-free and mercury-free design of Samsung business monitors ensures that they’re safe, as well as ensuring they’re recyclable. The mechanisms and circuits of Samsung business monitors are constructed without PVC, resulting in an eco-friendly device that lessens environmental impact. The PVC-free body offers health and environmental benefits throughout the monitor’s lifecycle, beginning with production, where it reduces the emission of harmful pollutants. During use, the monitor doesn’t add PVC-related toxins to the office environment. Finally, when correctly disposed of, the monitor does not leach PVC into soil, crops and water supplies. Some cablings contain PVC. Printed with soy ink even the words on the box of a Samsung business monitor benefit the environment.

Eco-certifications and awards
Business monitor environmental standards and certifications Samsung business monitors are designed to meet the strict requirements of the latest environmental standards and leading environmental certifications, including TCO Certified Displays 7.0, ENERGY STAR® 7.0*, EPEAT Gold, TÜV Rheinland and the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes. Samsung’s business monitors are part of its global efforts to be a leader in environmental stewardship. Their efforts have been recognized by the world’s foremost green agencies. For example, they have a Green Leaf Mark certification from Intertek, a UK-based provider of inspection, testing, training, consultancy, quality assurance and certification services. Another great example is Samsung’s UHD monitors, which feature TÜV Rheinland’s GS Mark Award certifying electrical safety. Additionally, the Samsung SE790C curved monitor has been validated by TÜV Rheinland for superior eye comfort by evaluating color presentation, color uniformity, viewing angle and absence of screen flicker. Lastly, in 2015, Samsung diverted 224 tons of end-of-life electronics from landfills, the CO2 avoidance equivalent of taking more than 112,000 cars off the road.

Green management
Environmental stewardship in products and manufacturing company-wide Green Management Vision 2020 the Samsung Global Environment Research Center was established to help support and fulfill Samsung’s commitment to global environmental responsibility. In 2011, the Samsung
Green Management Vision 2020 was announced, which included three primary objectives. Although they continue to work hard to innovate changes that reduce environmental impact, in 2020 and beyond Samsung strives for more in the eco-friendly space.
