Samsung Electronics’ efforts for environmental sustainability for the industry has been persistent throughout. Noticing the need for industry’s environmental standard, Samsung has developed the “Semiconductor Environmental Performance Index” (SEPI) that rationally identifies a semiconductor entity’s environmental position to stakeholders. Not only so, Samsung Semiconductor has already been actively cooperating and contributing to building an eco-conscious environment by actively participating in major global initiatives such as RE100 and OCP Sustainability Initiative. As a founding member of the SCC, Samsung Electronics will continue to actively play its pivotal role and work in the spirit of collaboration with fellow members to present a reasonable standard that voices the semiconductor ecosystem’s sustainability to mitigate climate change.

The conference hosts 40,000 estimated attendees, including over 100 heads of states and government, discussing matters of climate concern and raising global awareness about the climate challenges ahead.
