Samsung awarded ISO 50001 Certification for all foreign and domestic business sites only two years after introducing the standard
Lahore, October 23, 2013 (PPI-OT): Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., announced today that it is the first company in Korea to receive ISO 50001 certification for all foreign and domestic business sites only two years after introducing the standard. ISO 50001 is an international energy standard which Samsung received for its commitment to energy efficiency, including the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions across its business by 57 percent since 2008.
Executive Director Kim Haengil, head of Samsung Electronics Environment and Safety Centre, said, “The ISO 50001 certification is a testament to our commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions across the company.
We are proud to be the first company in Korea to receive this certification and to have achieved it in such a short time across the business. We will continue to lead the way for business greenhouse gas reduction and energy management.”
ISO 50001 was established by the International Organization for Standardization and went into effect in June 2011. It is a globally-certified energy management system that stipulates processes and procedures for energy reduction planning, execution, and operation. Samsung Electronics’ site in Gumi was the first to receive certification in July 2011 and by July 2012 all six business sites in Korea had been awarded the certification.
Samsung Electronics plans to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions by systematically identifying and addressing factors that result in energy waste. The company will continue to implement policies that ensure that a low-carbon footprint is not only maintained, but reduced.
