Pioneering Sustainability: The Samsung Galaxy S22 Series is win for both humans and the planet

Those who love the ground-breaking Samsung Galaxy S22 Series will also love that it has the planet at the heart of its design. With Samsung completely committed to purposeful innovation that supports a healthier planet, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Series was created to foster this core value.

With a string of innovations from its longer-lasting batteries1, powerful processing power to its prograde cameras, it is bound to capture the imagination of those seeking out Samsung’s latest technological marvel. It however achieves this by factoring its impact of the Earth.

As Samsung’s most eco-conscious device ever, the Galaxy S22 Series pioneers mobile technology while supporting the planet. Plastic pollution poses serious threats to our environment, and discarded fishing nets are especially harmful to marine life and our oceans. By collaborating with leading organisations, Samsung helps recover discarded fishing nets2 and transforms them into a high-performance material for its smartphones. This material – used in the Galaxy S22 Series’ component, key bracket – contains 20% recycled ocean-bound plastic3 from discarded fishing nets. The Galaxy S22 Series also incorporates post-consumer recycled material in its speaker module, as well as the inner parts of the power and volume keys. In addition to ocean-bound plastics, we use 100% recycled paper for the Galaxy S22’s packaging and include a protective film made from recycled plastic. Every smartphone case is also designed with UL-certified, eco-conscious materials4 – such as recycled post-consumer plastics or bio-based substances. These purposeful innovations are the latest example of Samsung’s commitment to doing more with less as part of Galaxy for the Planet. By 2025, Samsung will also incorporate recycled material in all its products, eliminating plastics in packaging, and achieving zero standby power consumption for all smartphone chargers. Samsung also aims to divert all waste from landfills at its manufacturing facilities across the globe. The Galaxy S22 Series is a crucial step in delivering on this ambition, and Samsung understands that the work will not end here but continue with each purposeful innovation that brings Samsung one more step closer to creating a more prosperous planet for all.
