Our beginning

"A mindset of working for the benefit of the state, the people and eventually mankind…"

Building better together

As a leading global technology company, we strive to empower future generations to reach their full potentials, adapt to our
rapidly-changing world and grasp every opportunity they encounter. In this spirit, we’ve given over $121 million to support
schools, hospitals and foundations nationwide over the last decade alone.

"At Samsung, we continuously strive to find where we can best serve our communities now and in the future. The way my team cares about people is an expression of Samsung's values as an organization."

Solve for Tomorrow

Designed to boost interest and proficiency in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), Solve for Tomorrow is our annual nationwide contest challenging teachers and students to identify solutions to problems within their community for the chance to win over $2M in technology products for schools. Each year, Samsung employees serve as mentors to these teams, helping students address issues ranging from mental health to climate change.

Protecting the future

Innovating energy-efficient products while minimizing our environmental impact is our top sustainability goal. By advancing toward
a circular economy, we're pushing the world to a more sustainable future.

Mark Newton,
Head of Corporate Sustainability

"Samsung is a playground for eco-innovation. We challenge the status quo and create amazing products and services that help our customers to be more efficient and productive. As a parent, a scientist and a global citizen, it's gratifying for me to grow in a company that dives deep every day to operate responsibly. Samsung connects and empowers each of us to make a lasting difference in the communities where we live."

A greener globe

Samsung is one of the world's largest, most responsible recyclers of e-waste in the tech sector, collecting and recycling 100 million pounds of material annually in the U.S. — the equivalent of taking nearly 9,000 cars off the road each year.

Power in action

In 2020, Samsung Electronics was able to hit our goal of sourcing renewable energy for 100% of the energy used for all of our factories, office buildings and operational facilities in the United States.

As a result of our progress, Samsung ranks among the leaders of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Green Power Partnership National Top 100 list and Top 30 Tech and Telecom list. In 2019, Samsung was also recognized with the EPA's Green Power leadership Award for Excellence in Green Power Use.

In your hands

From energy use to materials to packaging, what we put into the world is just as important as how we make it, which is why we strive to create products with the smallest impact possible on the environment.

Energy efficiency
Over 300 of our base models are ENERGY STAR® certified and we received the 2020 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year award.

Recycled plastics
Since 2009, Samsung product efficiency improvements have helped our customers avoid an estimated 270 million metric tons of CO₂ emissions through the use of our products.

By the end of 2020, Samsung hit our goal of ensuring 100% of the paper used in our packaging is made with certified sustainable fibers.

Our global goals

In September 2015, world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly pledged to drastically transform the world by 2030. The Sustainably Development Goals, known as the Global Goals, is a plan to eliminate hunger, fight inequality and clean up the planet. We have partnered with UNDP to magnify the voices, stories and ingenuity of young leaders helping to achieve Global Goals.
