Samsung aims for 100 percent renewable energy by 2020

Samsung has announced plans to go 100 percent green with renewable energy sources for its offices and factories across the US, Europe and China.

In its home base of Korea, the company is also preparing to change its Digital City headquarters by installing 42,000 square metres worth of solar panels.

As reported by CNet, there are further plans to use solar arrays to generate geothermal power at both Hwaseong and Pyeongtaek campuses by 2020.

Samsung's executive vice president Won Kyong Kim said the move shows the company's ambitions to protect the planet.

He said: "As demonstrated by our expanded commitment, we are focused on protecting our planet and are doing our part as a global environmental steward."

Meanwhile, the company will also approach its supply chain partners, with the goal of teaming up with the top 100 firms to help with setting and achieving its own renewable energy targets.

Furthermore, Samsung will aim to join the Carbon Disclosure Project Supply Chain Program, which provides support for companies to help them both monitor and manage the impact they are having on the environment.
