Samsung declared plans Thursday to change altogether to sustainable power source in its workplaces, industrial facilities, and operational offices in the United States, China, and Europe by 2020. The organization has additionally joined the World Wildlife Fund’s Renewable Energy Buyers’ Principles and the Rocky Mountain Institute’s Business Renewables Center.
In its home in Korea, Samsung wants to introduce 42,000 meters of solar panels at its central station, and will keep on adding roughly 21,000 meters of solar panels exhibits and geothermal power generation offices starting in 2019 at its satellite grounds in Pyeongtaek and Hwaseong. Together, that would position Samsung to make enough power from solar panels to control what might as well be called 115,000 four-person Korean family units for multi year, the organization said.
“Samsung Electronics is fulfilling its duty as a corporate citizen by expanding and supporting the use of renewable energy. As demonstrated by our expanded commitment, we are focused on protecting our planet and are doing our part as a global environmental steward,” said Samsung’s Won Kyong Kim, executive vice president and head of global public affairs.
Because of the rising global temperatures, many tech companies are moving to sustainable sources of energy to conserve the non-renewable sources of energy which only add to depletion and degradation of the environment. As part of its extended strategy, Samsung Electronics will also engage its partners across the supply chain. Beginning next year, Samsung plans to work with its top 100 partner companies to help them set their own renewable energy targets, in partnership with the Carbon Disclosure Project Supply Chain Program, which the company intends to join next year.
