Samsung receives zero waste to landfill validation for its manufacturing sites

The Korean electronics giant has shifted waste management methods from thermal processing or landfill disposals to recycling and reuse

Samsung has announced all its manufacturing sites worldwide have been verified by a third party as diverting at least 95% of their waste streams through methods other than incineration.

This verification includes sites in South Korea, US and China - one building in Hwaseong, Korea, has also been validated for 'Zero Waste to Landfill' at the platinum level for reaching 100% waste diversion.

The Korean electronics giant says this is a part of a strategy to minimise its environmental footprint by shifting waste management methods from thermal processing or landfill disposals to recycling and reuse.
