Samsung Electronics has adopted various measures such as high-efficiency facilities, energy management systems and training programs for employees to reduce energy consumption across all operations. We also plan to introduce an energy certification program for new facilities and buildings from 2010.
The company established a working group for energy management which meets every two months to share best practices for energy saving and management throughout all business divisions. These activities encourage facilities to set up highly energy efficient equipment and technologies; low-power vacuum pump technology, energy efficient water humidification systems, and energy efficient process optimization, etc.
We are also committed to enhancing employees' awareness through diverse training, promotions and incentive programs to facilitate energy saving activities at workplaces.
In order to save fossil fuels for future generations and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Samsung Electronics have begun using electricity from renewable energy sources. In the future, the company is seeking to increase the use of renewable energy and has invested in the development of renewable energy technologies such as fuel cells and solar cells
