Samsung Electronics America, Inc. has added a leading recycling program to its growing list of successes as a leader in environmental stewardship. This month, Samsung collected and recycled its 12 millionth pound of e-waste in 2009. Samsung Recycling Direct, launched in October 2008, is the company’s 50-state recycling program, which allows consumers to drop off their consumer electronics products at over 200 permanent drop-off centers in the United States.

Samsung’s program is part of a 2009 launch of Eco-Management 2013, a company-wide environmental sustainability initiative that emphasizes a commitment to making environmental guardianship a priority across the business. The initiative, announced in July this year, includes a $4.3 billion pledge to eco-management, a 50% reduction target for greenhouse gas emissions normalized by sales from global manufacturing facilities, an 84 million ton reduction of indirect greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing products, and a promise to make 100% of Samsung products eco-friendly over the next five years.
