Samsung Sustainability Actions

Eco-management value system

Samsung Electronics laid the foundations for eco-management as a philosophy for the 21st century in the Samsung Environmental Declaration in 1992. Since then, we have gone beyond mere passive adherence to environmental regulations and laws. We have put eco-management into action, offering our customers eco-friendly solutions and leading the way to a sustainable future. A healthy environment is essential to our future.

PlanetFirst

A slogan that expresses our commitment to corporate social responsibility and sustainability management through business practices that prioritizes environment protection. The circular shape of the logo stands for the earth and a new beginning, and the green and blue colors represent a fertile earth and water that will last generations.

Acting now for a sustainable, low-carbon future

Climate change, resulting at least in part from a surge in the use of fossil fuels and the global warming it has caused, is a serious problem that affects the entire world. Samsung Electronics has acknowledged the reality of the crisis and is therefore continuing efforts on multiple fronts. These include developing highly energy-efficient products, installing equipment with minimum greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and harnessing new and renewable energy.
