Samsung Electronics Canada has been named the 2021 Appliance Manufacturer of the Year by ENERGY STAR Canada, a program of Natural Resources Canada. The award marks the fourth win for Samsung Canada in this category with previous wins as the Appliance Manufacturer of the Year in 2017, 2018 and 2019, in addition to winning the ENERGY STAR Canada Award for Sustained Excellence in 2020.
An ENERGY STAR Canada participant since 2003, Samsung Canada is proud of its ENERGY STAR accomplishments and pleased to promote products as energy efficient options for consumers and businesses.
“At Samsung, we are not only breaking ground with innovative technologies that reshape our experiences, but we are also empowering consumers with tangible solutions to play a part in conserving energy,” said Pat Bugos, VP/Head of Consumer Electronics, Samsung Electronics Canada. “We are committed to building environmental sustainability into everything we do and delivering energy-efficient product innovation with real-world impact.”
“When you see the ENERGY STAR label, you know it means energy savings. It saves money on energy bills, helps consumers and businesses make informed decisions, and lowers energy use. This year’s winners are building a more sustainable, energy-efficient and prosperous future,” said the Honourable Seamus O’Regan Jr., Minister of Natural Resources. “Congratulations to Samsung Electronics Canada as the recipient of the 2021 ENERGY STAR Canada award for Manufacturer of the Year – Appliances.”
Key factors in Samsung Canada’s recognition as Appliance Manufacturer of the Year include an increase in the percentage of its ENERGY STAR certified products within Samsung’s offerings as compared to 2020. Samsung’s ENERGY STAR certified product portfolio now includes 100 percent of dishwashers, 87 percent of refrigerators, 89 percent of clothes washers and 84 percent of clothes dryers.
Moreover, other notable accomplishments include:
Expansion of Samsung’s product line to offer varying sizes of appliances, especially as demand for smaller appliances becomes prevalent in Canada.
Partnership with BC Hydro for its fall program to provide incentives to consumers who purchase ENERGY STAR certified products and to raise consumer awareness.
Trained employees and in-store retail sales associates of ENERGY STAR certified products and their features.
