Three of the four Samsung 2013 Eco-Design Award-winners – the Series 9 Premium
Ultrabook, the CLP-365W Laser Color Printer, and the Green DDR3 – will be on
display at the Eco Zone.

  *Samsung’s Series 9 Premium Ultrabook is designed to meet strict
    performance and environmental criteria with extremely low energy
    consumption both in idle and standby modes, which leads to a reduction in
    environmental impact.The Series 9 is also free of polyvinyl chloride
    (PVC) and brominated flame retardants (BFR). Samsung also developed a
    longer-lasting battery specifically for the Series 9 which delivers up to
    10 hours of power on a single charge¹ and an optimized Smart Step Charging
    Algorithm that improves the multi-way charger by control charging
    conditions depending on voltage and current.Samsung’s unique suite of
    software allows people to choose between Power-saving and Eco-modes. The
    Series 9 has been certified worldwide with energy certifications such as
    ENERGY STAR v5.2, EPEAT Gold rating, and TCO notebooks 3.1.
  *Samsung’s CLP-365W Laser Color Printer offers a number of environmentally
    friendly features such as the “One-Touch Eco Button” and the “Easy Eco
    Driver” which are designed to save power, paper and toner. As part of
    Samsung’s commitment to the environment, all of the latest color models
    have earned the ENERGY STAR-certification and all toner is eligible for
    Samsung’s S.T.A.R. Program, a free service that recycles empty cartridges
    into usable component materials.
  *Samsung’s Green DDR3 is a highly advanced memory module designed for
    server systems used to support the infrastructure of a wide variety of
    server applications. It delivers the highest memory performance available
    today for servers (1333 Mbps) and at its highest density enables extremely
    high capacity (3TB max) memory configurations for four-way server systems.
    Operating with a voltage of 1.35V, according to Samsung tests it provides
    an average 70% power savings (per unit density) over a 50nm class
    equivalent, 1.5V DDR3-based RDIMM.

“Samsung’s Eco Zone Display at CES exemplifies our continued commitment to the
environment and the long-term life expectancy and durability of our products
that make our technology truly sustainable,” said David Steel, Executive Vice
President of Strategy for Samsung Electronics North America. “We look forward
to creating new technology that will provide people with the next generation
of eco-friendly features they never dreamed was possible.”

The other 2013 Eco-Design Award-winner, Samsung’s new LED Smart Bulb, was
unveiled at the Official Press Event of the International CES on Jan. 6 and
will be featured at the Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Showcase in
The Venetian.

  *Samsung’s LED Smart Bulb uses less energy and lasts longer than
    incandescent bulbs. The 13.6W bulb casts a pleasant warm white glow that
    matches the brightness of a 50W incandescent bulb which is sufficient for
    the most common areas of the home. It is also flicker-free, and unlike
    CFLs, reaches full illumination immediately. This state-of-the-art product
    is also integrated with a wireless communication protocol, which allows
    people to easily control the lighting by using their smartphone to change
    the ambience of a space - even from the comfort of their sofa.

Other products with eco-conscious features on display at the Eco Zone of the
Samsung booth include:

  *The Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate™ (SGH-1577) with AT&T is the first 4G LTE
    smartphone to receive platinum certification from UL Environment, a
    business unit of UL (Underwriters Laboratories). UL Environment sets
    minimum requirements for “environmentally preferable” mobile devices by
    measuring environmentally sensitive materials, energy management,
    manufacturing and operations, impact to health and environment, product
    performance, packaging and product stewardship. The Exhilarate features a
    rear casing made from 80 percent recycled (post-consumer waste) material
    and is packaged with a low-load, energy-efficient charger that alerts
    customers when the device is fully charged.

  *The WiFi-enabled Samsung WF457ARGSGR front-load washer which delivers
    large capacity, smart features, and superior cleaning performance in an
    eco-efficient model. This washer features SpeedSpray which delivers a
    concentrated solution of detergent to clean more quickly, saving up to 90
    minutes per week on laundry. The washer meets ENERGY STAR’s most efficient
    washer criteria, representing the top 5 percent of washers in energy
    performance.It also features a Smart Control system that allows people to
    control their washer remotely. Through a wireless router and a smart phone
    application, people can monitor cycle selections, remaining time and
    finishing alerts, as well as start or pause the washer.
  *The Samsung RF263BEAESR French Door stainless steel refrigerator is a
    modern, stylish, and organized partner in the kitchen. The ENERGY
    STAR-qualified CEE Tier 3 refrigerator uses 31 percent less energy than
    the Department of Energy standards and is designed to exceed 2014
    standards, making it as efficient as it is functional, without
    compromising capacity and contemporary design. The 26 cu. ft. refrigerator
    also features Samsung’s exclusive Twin Cooling Plus® System, which
    circulates air within the refrigerator and freezer compartments
    individually. Two separate evaporators and air flow streams eliminate the
    transfer of odors between compartments and maintain optimal humidity
    levels, keeping produce fresher, longer, and help save money on grocery

Products such as the UN55F8000AF and the UN46F8000AF on display outside the
Eco Zone at the Samsung booth also feature eco-conscious features. These LED
TVs were the first in the industry to qualify for the newly created UL
Environment Gold Level designation based on the IEEE Standard for
Environmental Assessment of Televisions (1680.3). The nationally recognized
standard helps identify electronic equipment that are more eco-friendly. To
qualify for Gold Level, the TV must meet all required criteria plus 75% of the
optional criteria.

In addition to the company’s commitment to energy-saving, eco-conscious, and
sustainable technology, Samsung understands the importance of recycling
technology in a safe and convenient way. To help consumers responsibly recycle
their old electronics, Samsung makes it easy as possible by offering
collection opportunities in all 50 states. Through its 900+ recycling
locations, Samsung collected and responsibly recycled more than 83 million
pounds of e-waste in 2012 and more than 239 million pounds of e-waste since
the Samsung Recycling Direct program began in 2008.
