Samsung Electronics' Device Solutions Division is planning to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2020 compared to BAU (Business As Usual) through the application of BAT (Best Available Technology) to its new lines.
To achieve this goal, Device Solutions is utilizing highly efficient facilities and technologies in the purchasing and engineering stages to reduce energy consumption and continuously expand the industry's first large-capacity treatment facilities to lower PFC emissions.
As a result of these efforts, the Device Solutions lowered GHG intensity in 2013 by 25% compared to 2005 levels (excluding NF3).
Including NF3, the accumulated reduction from 2005 to 2013 equals 54 million tons, equivalent to the effect of planting 59.4 billion trees.
