- To Create Eco-value
- In 2003 when Samsung SDI began sustainability management, it established the goal of environmental sustainability as eco-value creation.
It indicates that externally a company contributes to the society by creating eco-values and internally environment as one of three aspects in business management creates critical values.
- To this end, Samsung SDI set out five strategies across all processes of corporate activities. The five strate-gies are composed of integrated environmental management system for continuous improvement of organizations and system, environmental supply chain management to build green partnership with suppliers, cleaner production for least resource use and minimization of pollution, eco-design to create environmental values for customers, and interactive communication. Accordingly, Samsung SDI worked out action plans for each strategy and has been continuing their execution.
- To create true eco-values, the whole life cycle related to management of a company has to be managed, and green partnership has to be forged between the environment, partners and suppliers, customers, and the society which exist around Samsung SDI. For the environment, in particular, you have to take less and emit less from and to the environment. But with suppliers and partners, customers and the society, you have to cooperate and exchange more. This is the direction that Samsung SDI is heading for environmental sustainability.
The below picture on the right, showing the environmental impacts of Samsung SDI, conveys significant meanings. While the picture shows our environmental impacts on the outside of the company, it also indicates the areas out of Samsung SDI’s reach or proper management and the possible answers to tackle these tasks. It also implies the magnitude of a company’s challenge to control the environmental impacts of its products thinking far beyond its manufacturing bases and factories. Meanwhile, it is true that the environmental impact of a product’s lifecycle is far greater than the impact created by a factory. That’s why it is an impending challenge that we should and will continue to think about.
