Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8+ have received a gold rating from the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT). This is the definitive rating framework for assessing electronic gadgets’ eco-friendliness for mobile phones. The gadgets are the primary cell phones to win this sort of affirmation which persuade parameters like material determination, item life span, maker’s social commitments and energy conservation during production and use.
The affirmation is a joint activity of the non-profit Green Electronics Council and Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a global safety science association. The rating was earned in acknowledgment of Samsung’s endeavors to deliver the gadgets economically, which included expanding the effectiveness of their chargers, utilizing recycled plastics in accessories and other eco-friendly measures.
This qualification is the second time that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ have gotten from UL. This past June, the association’s UL Environment division granted the two gadgets ECOLOGO Gold Certification to the ANSI/UL 110 Standard for Sustainability for Mobile Phones.
In addition to getting a top EPEAT rating, both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ have likewise been given a “Carbon Footprint Label” from the Carbon Trust, one of the main experts on carbon-diminishment projects and confirmations, as well as a “Vitality Leaf” eco-label from the Russian Ecological Union; signalling the increasing strides Samsung is taking to ensure a sustainable product.
