Electronics Co., Ltd., announced today that all of its 2015 business monitor models – SE200, SE450, SE650, SE650C and UE850 – have earned Green Leaf Mark
certification from Intertek, a UK-based provider of inspection, testing, training, consultancy, quality assurance and certification services. The certification underscores Samsung’s commitment to developing and providing environmentally-friendly displays that feature state-of-the-art technologies.
The Green Leaf Mark, an environmental certification awarded by Intertek, is issued to products that meet a series of eco-friendly qualifications. Through rigorous independent testing, Intertek verified that Samsung’s entire 2015 business monitor lineup is composed of 30 percent recycled plastics – the highest level in the industry. Additionally, Intertek recognized Samsung’s monitors for their PVC-free products, which do not release hazardous chemicals that result in environmental damages and health problems.
“Achieving Green Leaf Mark certification from Intertek further demonstrates our environmentally-friendly design and manufacturing processes to our global consumers,” said Seok-gi Kim, Senior Vice President, Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics. “We will continue to devote our R&D efforts to developing innovative green products that improve energy efficiency while simultaneously maximizing users’ visual comfort.”
In addition to certifying the eco-friendly composition of Samsung’s 2015 business monitors, Intertek also recognized the SE450 and SE650 series models for their energy efficiency. Both models earned Green Leaf Mark certification for their built-in ECO-Power Off function, which offers 0.00W off-mode power consumption (less than 0.005W based on IEC 62301 and EN 50564:2011).
Intertek operates more than 1,000 laboratories and offices in more than 100 countries. For more than 130 years, the world’s leading brands have collaborated with Intertek to ensure that their products and systems meet quality, safety and environmental standards.
