Samsung has announced that it has received life cycle assessment validation for its semiconductor products.
Samsung Electronics, a global leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today announced that it has completed a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of the carbon footprint of its semiconductor business and received validation from DNV, one of the world’s leading independent certification bodies.
LCA is a methodology for assessing the environmental impact throughout the life cycle of a commercial product, process or service by quantifying energy, material and waste disposal. While detailing the carbon footprint of its semiconductors, Samsung’s LCA covers the extraction of raw materials for manufacturing, assembling and testing chips. Its results comply with the ISO 14040, ISO 14044 and ISO 14067 standards, which ensures reliability and transparency.
“Since 2019, we have been actively mobilizing to measure and reduce carbon emissions with our key memory and logic solutions,” said Duguyen Song, executive vice president of the Center for Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) at Samsung Electronics. “By using LCA, we will be able to support our customers in achieving their carbon neutrality, as well as become more transparent about the environmental impact of the semiconductors we produce around the world.”
“As a global expert in energy and environmental certification, DNV is delighted to partner with Samsung and congratulate them on successfully building a trusted LCA,” said Jang Sup Lee, CEO of DNV Business Assurance Korea. “Together with global business leaders like Samsung, we will continue to be part of creating a more sustainable environment in the future.”
