Samsung launches recycling scheme for office machines
Samsung has launched a new scheme to increase the number of office machines and printer cartridges which are recycled around the world.
The technology firm has launched Samsung PrintCycle to help businesses reuse old office products, and also to replace harmful machines with more eco-friendly products.
Jay Shears, director of marketing and digital printing systems at Samsung, said in a press release: "By offering easy ways to help the business professional support environmentally safe options, we are providing a service to our customers and a continuing commitment to the environment."
He also stressed Samsung's continuing policy to find new ways to be environmentally-friendly.
All of its future products will use new technologies to minimise their impact on the planet, according to the company.
Forecasts from Samsung have predicted that the company will exceed last year's net income figures of $7.5 billion (£3.7 billion), but will still be below previous analyst expectations for the year.
