As part of a US$4.3 billion ‘Eco-Management 2013’ plan, Samsung Electronics is expecting to introduce PFC and SF6 reduction technologies at its LCD and semiconductor manufacturing facilities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2013.

Although the electronics giant did not reveal which technologies would be employed or detail how it would finance the extensive program the move could be a boon for suppliers through this period, outside the return to normal capital expenditures in the coming years.

Yoon-Woo Lee, Samsung Electronics' vice chairman and CEO.“As a leading global technology company, Samsung Electronics has always taken our environmental responsibilities very seriously, but today we are committing to becoming a truly green enterprise that places eco-management at the very heart of our business decision-making and growth,” said Yoon-Woo Lee, Samsung Electronics' vice chairman and CEO. “This eco-management initiative will encompass all of our global operations, supply chain, and the complete lifecycle of Samsung products, and by achieving these goals we aim to lead the way in tackling the environmental problems that are facing our planet.”
