In 2019, Samsung replaced all the electricity used at our global sites in the U.S. and China with renewable energy — one year earlier than our 2020 goal. The reason we put this in place so quickly is because we wanted to expand the use of pollution-free renewable energy and reduce the use of regular energy, the main cause of global warming.

We are putting all our effort
into increasing our use
of renewable energy.

Now it’s time to learn about what we’re doing to combat climate change in Korea. Just like our semiconductors, each and every one of us can help protect the planet and create a sustainable future.

Samsung strives to
expand the use of solar and other renewable energy sources
domestically.

The Korean government’s plan to expand the use of renewable energy began with the promise that “by 2030, 20% of all energy use will be from renewable energy.” We have already brought 100% renewable energy use to our global sites; now, we strive to expand renewable energy use at our domestic sites as well.
