Achievement highlights Samsung’s commitment to protecting the environment through energy efficiency

Samsung Electronics America is proud to announce it has received the 2020 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award for continued leadership and superior contributions to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR program. The award recognizes EPA partner businesses and organizations in good standing that demonstrate superior leadership, innovation, and commitment to environmental protection through energy efficiency and ENERGY STAR.

This is Samsung’s 12th Partner of the Year recognition and 7th time achieving the Sustained Excellence Award for its environmental stewardship exhibited through producing energy-efficient appliances and technology as well as for engaging customers, employees and students about the value of environmental protection and energy savings. For Samsung, ENERGY STAR is also a symbol of economic development and investment in the U.S. manufacturing base. At the state-of-the-art facility in Newberry, SC, every washer produced is ENERGY STAR-certified. This includes innovative front load and top load machines that not only save energy but deliver time savings, increased capacity, stronger cleaning performance and stylish design.

“Samsung takes its responsibility to care for our communities and environment seriously and values our partnership with ENERGY STAR,” said Shane Higby, Vice President for Home Appliance Product Marketing at Samsung Electronics America. “While many of the company’s efforts around energy efficiency are focused on manufacturing of home appliances, our work also extends to product training efforts as well as investments in environmental education initiatives. Samsung remains committed to energy efficiency innovation while minimizing our environmental impact.”

As of 2019, 33 of Samsung’s products were designated by the EPA as Most Efficient. Including savings driven by ENERGY STAR certification, overall product efficiency improvements have helped our customers avoid an estimated 243 million tons of CO2 emissions through the use of Samsung products since 2009.

In 2016, Samsung also won the ENERGY STAR Emerging Technology Award for Innovative Refrigerant Systems and in 2013, Samsung won the ENERGY STAR Emerging Technology Award for Advanced Clothes Dryers.

“I salute the 2020 ENERGY STAR award winners,” said Anne Idsal, EPA Principal Deputy Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation. “These leaders demonstrate how energy efficiency drives economic competitiveness in tandem with environmental protection.”

The highest honor among ENERGY STAR awards is the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year—Sustained Excellence Award. EPA presents the Sustained Excellence Award to partners that have already received ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year recognition for a minimum of two consecutive years and have gone above and beyond the criteria needed to qualify for recognition. Winners hail from small, family-owned businesses to Fortune 500 organizations—representing energy-efficient products, services, new homes, and buildings in the commercial, industrial, and public sectors.
