Principles

Guidelines

Over the years, expectations from various entities - including NGOs, governments, customers, shareholders, suppliers and employees - have grown along with our responsibilities as a global corporate citizen. In this spirit, Samsung Electronics has updated and revised the 'Business Conduct Guidelines' (published for the first time in 2015) that provide a specific direction for sustainable management, as part of our ongoing effort to ensure responsible management, by creating a list of commitments from all executives and employees.
