Samsung’s four high-performance chips recognized

South Korea’s Samsung Electronics announced on Sept. 9 that four of its System LSI products had received product carbon footprint label certification from the Carbon Trust.

The Seoul-based company said that the certification marked its first logic chips to win the recognition. They are Exynos 2100, ISOCELL HM2, DTV SoC, and TCON.

In 2019, the tech giant was given the semiconductor industry’s first carbon footprint accreditation for memory chips from the Carbon Trust.

“We’re pleased to have worked with Samsung on this step in its sustainability journey,” said Hugh Jones, managing director at the Carbon Trust Advisory.

“The Carbon Trust’s Carbon Measured certification is a clear and credible indicator for consumers that the carbon footprint of these products has been independently verified, as well as a baseline for Samsung to compare against as they work towards reducing their emissions in the future.”

Including the above-mentioned four chips, Samsung has received certifications for 14 semiconductor products from the Carbon Trust over the past several years.

“We are thrilled to be globally acknowledged for our eco-friendly efforts,” Samsung Senior Vice President Jang Seong-dai said.

“We will continue to fulfill our carbon reduction goals and expand our efforts to a wider range of eco-friendly, high-performance products to meet the global standards for a sustainable future.”

Samsung Electronics is the world’s largest manufacturer of mobile phones, memory chips, and flat-panel displays.
