             DHL and Samsung Electronics Australia join forces under the
             National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme

                 DHL to collect and recycle Samsung televisions and select electronic
                  products on behalf of Samsung Electronics Australia and to provide
                  access to collection services across Australia

             Sydney, June 26: DHL, the world’s leading logistics company, today confirmed it has
             joined forces with Samsung Electronics Australia under the requirements of the National
             Television and Computer Recycling Scheme (the Scheme). The Supply Chain arm of DHL
             in Australia will provide a comprehensive solution to Samsung which will include the
             collection and recycling of Samsung televisions, computers and computer peripherals.

             “In March this year, DHL announced its success in gaining government approval as the
             first organisation to deliver services under the national Scheme. Whilst the Scheme is a
             first for Australia, DHL brings considerable knowledge and experience from the UK, where
             we are a leading service provider under similar legislation. With a business relationship
             spanning 10 years, DHL is delighted to be providing a product stewardship solution to the
             Australian arm of its global customer, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. DHL was named
             Best Global Partner at the 2012 Samsung Electronics Award Ceremony, winning this
             award for the fourth consecutive year,” said Terry Ryan, CEO South Pacific, DHL Supply

             “Samsung Electronics Australia looks forward to working with DHL in fulfilling our product
             stewardship obligations, expanding on our existing relationship and achieving the
             Scheme’s targets. The Scheme was developed through industry and government co-
             operation; it is rewarding to see that on-ground activity is now underway and that
             Samsung is actively supporting the Scheme, by helping to reduce these products being
             sent to landfill,” said Arno Lenior, Marketing Director, Samsung Electronics Australia.

             The National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme involves a combination of

            government regulation and industry action to help reduce the amount of television and
            computer waste going to landfill and to increase the recovery of resources. The Scheme
            aims to boost the recycling rate of these products from 17 per cent in 2010 to 80 per cent
            by 2021-22.

            Services under DHL’s solution commenced in the ACT on 15 May 2012 and will
            progressively roll-out across Australia by the end of 2013.

            The industry funded National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme is regulated by
            the Australian Government under the landmark Product Stewardship Act 2011.
