Climate change is one of the most serious environmental threats facing our world. It is crucially important for all companies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from business operations in order to protect the environment against climate change and achieve sustainable growth.
Samsung Electronics has been establishing corporate-level strategies to address its direct and indirect impact on climate change. Through this, Samsung strives to reduce direct and indirect emissions of greenhouse gases and prevent potential risks by carrying out initiatives in voluntary GHG reduction and the development of an inventory.
Policy and goals
The 1992 Rio Declaration on Environment and Development highlighted the needs of regulating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions which have a direct impact on climate change.
Greenhouse Gas management
Samsung Electronics' total emissions of greenhouse gases have increased in recent years, primarily due to continuous growth in our semiconductor and LCD panel businesses.
