Samsung Electronics Semiconductor Division works to preserve the environment, for example, by purifying rivers around its workplaces. We also operate environmental science classes for elementary school children near the complexes to promote scientific knowledge and environmental awareness.
Educational Contribution (Sister School / Environmental Science School)
Since 2007, the Samsung Semiconductor Division has run an Environmental Science Class for elementary school students in local communities. Every year, about 600 elementary school students participate in the program to conduct experiments and learn interesting information about science and the environment.
We run the Environmental Science Class at 5 elementary schools near the Giheung and Hwaseong complexes. Our employees volunteer as teachers. About 60 employee volunteers in the Environmental Science Class complete the Junior Engineer Achievement program of the National Academy of Engineering of Korea to make the science class easy and fun for students. Because most participants are very satisfied with the program and want to participate again, the Samsung Semiconductor Division plans to diversify the program's content and continue to develop it.
Environmental Improvement (EM Mud Ball Activity)
To preserve the natural environment of local communities, the Samsung Semiconductor Division has worked hard to improve water quality in streams by using EM (Effective Micro-organisms) mud balls since 2009. EM mud balls made by our employees are thrown into streams near Giheung and Hwaseong complexes to improve the water quality.
EM mud balls area made of effective micro-organisms. By removing pollutants and odor sources in streams, the micro-organisms keep the streams clean.
The Samsung Semiconductor Division's medical staff and employee volunteers have formed a medical service team to perform check-ups for economically disadvantaged people, such as senior citizens in local communities. Our employees are committed to using their expertise to provide customized community services for those in need.
