Following the moderator’s lead, the panels went on to talk and provide various insights for the audience on △the way energy usage in businesses are changing △the importance of energy security and energy efficiency and △the ways the IT industry is working together.
Celeste Crystal, who moderated the session, said "It is the first time that Samsung Semiconductor hosted such panel discussion-style dialogue on sustainability working along the academia community" "It was good opportunity to show that Samsung Semiconductors is exercising proactive sustainability leadership in the IT industry and its value chain; from suppliers and industries to public institutions and customers." Celeste went on and said “Samsung Semiconductor continues to look for new technologies and solutions to use energy more efficiently. With the annually released sustainability report, Samsung Semiconductor has shown improvements in renewable energy use and to optimize energy usage and minimize material consumption, it is also setting up internal operation analysis system. One good example is the RCS facility that effectively processes process gas while using relatively less energy than that of other existing process gas treatment facility. Also since joining the RE100 in September of 2022, our efforts to use more renewable energy continues." She ended by saying "At Samsung Semiconductor, we believe that the technology and sustainable practices at Samsung Semiconductors will play a key role in making a sustainable future."
Role of Collaboration to Achieve Sustainability Goals And Make Progress in Eco-Conscious Technology
A sustainable future is not realizable by one individual effort and so a collective effort by the industry is vital. In particular, industries that demand vast amount of energy, such as the IT industry, need more efficient energy use/management. This forum was an opportunity for Samsung Semiconductor to share the company’s energy efficient technology and its potential to help lead and guide the IT industry on the road to a sustainable future. Samsung Semiconductor will continue to innovate more efficient energy technologies; communicate and cooperate with various stakeholders to lead the IT industry to sustainability.
