Samsung Takes Sustainable Living to the Next Level at CES 2023
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced on January 5, 2023 innovations designed to bring about a new era of sustainable living. With services like SmartThings Energy setting new standards for household efficiency, Samsung’s latest Bespoke home appliances empower users to save both energy and money. Together with technologies including a new wash cycle and filter that reduce microplastic emissions from washers, Samsung’s newest advancements make it easier for consumers to reduce their impact on the environment in support of the planet. Samsung’s efforts to enrich and expand SmartThings Energy have led the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to award Samsung the industry’s first mass-market Smart Home Energy Management Systems (SHEMS) certification. The certification recognizes smart home appliances and services that manage and automate connected devices to help consumers gain insights into their energy use, thereby inspiring energy-saving behavior, reducing costs, and helping to facilitate demand response measures that minimize stress on the grid. The EPA has also awarded base model Samsung home appliances 260 ENERGY STAR® certifications, including 43 “Most Efficient” recognitions.
“The technologies we’re unveiling at CES 2023 place sustainability at the core of the user experience,” said Moohyung Lee, EVP and Head of the R&D Team of the Digital Appliances Business at Samsung Electronics. “Our ambition is to become the most energy-efficient appliance brand globally, and our latest products and partnerships will help make sustainable living a reality for more people and more communities.”
