Samsung Galaxy S4 Pioneer of Sustainability Award

Samsung’s Galaxy S4 is the world’s first smartphone that is now certified by TCO development as sustainable according to the new category of “TCO Certified Smartphones”.
For its environmentally friendly design, Samsung’s Galaxy S4 was now equipped with a certificate of TCO development and thus is the first Smartphone, which may carry this mark. The Swedish Trade Union Federation TCO had categorized mainly monitors on environmental grounds out.
The use of environmentally friendly materials in production, the application of social standards for the staff of the manufacturer and the safety of the buyer against harmful effects in the use of technology is applicable for the category of “TCO Certified Smartphones”.

Samsung surprised with the award

TCO has the ambition to promote a sustainable mode of production in the field of hardware and to provide a trusted label to potential buyers. The award of the certificate is done by an independent scientific body. TCO is the only source for certifications, which combines both environmental and social standards in a single certificate. The current expansion to the Smartphone area might be setting trends for the industry – but the Galaxy S4 from liuxers.com is among the prestigious projects throughout the market. It is probably assumed that Samsung also some way is more suited to the needs of buyers and prospects so. TCO development is negotiating with other providers of smartphones.
Two years ago, TCO had begun to integrate the test of sustainability also on social standards in its manufacturing facilities in the certification. In addition to monitors and Smartphones, the award also for PCs, notebooks, tablets, and other additional hardware is presented. The classification of social needs is addressed in standards of the International Labour Organisation (ILO, International Labor Organization).
Not only Apple had some problems with inadequate working conditions in its manufacturer companies lately – Samsung got increasingly into the criticism and seems to have drawn conclusions. The Dutch pilot project “Fairphone” has already demonstrated that it is possible and economically, to engage in sustainability in all aspects of production. As a result of the research work, Fairphone has brought a sustainable smart phone on the market for the retail price of moderate 325 euros.
