Samsung Electronics, one of the world’s leading semiconductor companies, announced that it has completed a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of the carbon footprint of its semiconductor products. In addition, it has also received DNV certification.
According to the introduction, Samsung’s LCA covers the certification of raw materials through chip manufacturing, assembly and testing in accordance with ISO 14040, ISO 14044 and ISO 14067 standards.
Since 2019, Samsung Electronics has had 37 semiconductor products certified by the Carbon Trust and UL’s Carbon Footprint, with the former involving six Samsung memory products.
According to the official blog, Samsung will assess the carbon footprint of semiconductors produced at all of its global manufacturing, testing and assembly locations in China, South Korea and the United States. In addition, Samsung will expand its LCA to include water and resource footprints to provide a detailed assessment and reduce its environmental impact.
Together with global business leaders like Samsung, we will continue to participate in creating a more sustainable environment in the future,” said JangSup Lee, CEO of DNV Business Assurance Korea.
