In 2009, Samsung Electronics launched the PlanetFirst campaign to reinforce its commitment to the planet. Since then, it has turned this commitment into action by achieving a number of eco-management targets that you can read about here. But at a grassroots level, Samsung’s employees have themselves also demonstrated a commitment toward conservation in their local communities.
To highlight the importance of World Environment Day last month, Samsung Newsroom put together a slideshow that captures some of the small-but-significant green initiatives by Samsung employees around the world. From cleaning up natural habitats to raising environmental awareness, here’s how our global colleagues are doing their part to make the planet a cleaner, more sustainable place to live and work.
Cleaning Up the Environment
As part of efforts to make Earth a cleaner and healthier place to live, Samsung employees around the globe have participated in range of environmental cleanups, end-of-life (EOL) recovery campaigns for used electronics waste, and even community tree plantings.
In the photos below, you can see how Samsung employees – in Mexico, Germany, Panama, Portugal, Romania, Thailand, Ukraine and the United Kingdom – got out and about to clean up their communities.
Raising Environmental Awareness
In addition to environmental cleanups, another piece of the environmental puzzle that employees of Samsung have contributed to, is in promoting environmental awareness among children and the general public.
So let’s take a quick trip around the world – via China, Colombia, Panama, the US and Sweden – to catch some environmental activities promoting greater green awareness that the company’s employees are involved in.
Samsung Electronics remains committed to raising awareness of environmental issues, and plans to continue to participate in efforts aimed at making the planet a cleaner, more sustainable place to live.
