Samsung has big plans for sustainable living by reducing carbon footprint at home
Announcing its net zero targets from direct and indirect emissions by 2050 in September last year, ‘Sustainable Living’ is the central theme for Korean technology giant Samsung at the Consumer Electronics Show at Last Vegas this year. The company aims to become the most energy-efficient appliance brand globally to help consumers reduce their environmental impact with innovations such as SmartThings Energy, which can set new standards for household efficiency, a new wash cycle and filter to significantly reduce microplastic emissions from washers, and more. To help consumers reduce their carbon footprint at home, Samsung’s SmartThings Energy’s AI Energy Mode will offer support for more devices and regions and even more significant energy savings. Samsung has also unveiled the next phase of its net zero home initiative: the Smart City Project. Samsung is working with Sterling Ranch and its long-time technology partner Siemens, and this Smart City Project will help establish Sterling Ranch as a master-planned sustainable housing community designed to house 30,000 residents in Littleton, Colorado. Throughout the community, solar panels and household batteries will produce and store energy, while energy-efficient appliances reduce power and monitor water use to save resources.
