Ridgefield Park, N.J. - Samsung Electronics announced it has been named 2012 Energy Star Partner of the Year in the Product Manufacturing Category by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Samsung said that by offering 960 Energy Star-qualified models across multiple product categories, including more TVs than all other CE brands, it was selected out of the 20,000 participating Energy Star organizations for its "outstanding contributions in ongoing employee, retailer, and distributor training programs, as well as consumer education campaigns, recycling efforts, and labeling practices."
Building on its multi-year partnership with the EPA, Samsung said it actively promoted "Change the World, Start with Energy Star," encouraging consumers to pledge small, yet important, steps to fight global climate change at the company's events.
This marks the fourth consecutive year Samsung has been honored for providing its customers with energy-efficient products that have reduced consumption and helped consumers save on their energy costs, it noted. The company will formally accept the recognition at the award ceremony on March 15 in Washington D.C.
