Business Conduct Guidelines
In 2005, Samsung Electronics introduced the ‘Global Code of Conduct’ as a reference guide to our approach to accountable and responsible business practices. Over the years, expectations from various entities - including NGOs, governments, customers, shareholders, suppliers and employees - have grown along with our responsibility as a global corporate citizen. In this spirit, Samsung Electronics has updated and revised the ‘Business Conduct Guidelines’ that provide a specific direction for sustainable management, published for the first time in last year’s Sustainability Report.
Supplier Code of Conduct
Samsung will also seek partnerships with key stakeholders such as NGOs, governments and local communities in order to improve the Guidelines continuously and make sure they are consistent with local labour law and Samsung’s Business Conduct Guidelines.
