Human Rights

Under our People First corporate philosophy, we at Samsung
Electronics strive to reflect our respect for human rights, diversity and
inclusion in all of our day-to-day activities.

We are constantly improving the safety of our work environment and
fostering a strong corporate culture that supports and encourages
personal growth.

Commitment to
Respect Human

Because human rights are fundamental rights

Human rights and freedom are
universal and inherent to us all. We are committed to respecting them, and we do our best to help our employees, partners and customers pursue happiness. Based on the internationally recognized UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), we created our own framework, which we implement to uphold high standards for human rights. Our approach to human rights identifies, prevents and mitigates real and potential human rights risks throughout our business activities, and reinforces it through meaningful cooperation with stakeholders. We hold our business to the same standards.

Health and Safety

Because working in a safe and
healthy environment is essential

Each business division operates its own safety and health management system and continuously identifies and evaluates potential risks. The head of our Global Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Center in the DX (Device eXperience) Division and the head of the Global Manufacturing & Infrastructure Department in the DS (Device Solutions) Division act as Chief Safety Officers to secure the safety and health of our employees.
