In the US, the two Galaxy handsets received the highest Sustainability Product Certification (SPC) from safety testing and certification organization UL (Underwriters Laboratories). According to Samsung, the devices were recognized for "meeting a series of rigorous criteria on toxic material, energy efficiency, recyclability of product and packaging, as well as the manufacturer’s social responsibility practices."

In the UK, the smartphones got a "CO2 Measured Label" from Carbon Trust, while in Brazil and Russia they received Vitality Leaf certifications.

The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge come in retail packages made with 100% recycled paper and printed with soy ink. Moreover, 20% of the plastic in their battery chargers is made out of recycled plastic.
