Samsung cares about the environment and finding ways to solve environmental problems through technology.
Samsung is committed to youth initiatives in Hong Kong. With Samsung Solve for Tomorrow, we are taking the next step by investing in the younger generation and enabling students to make a difference to our environment.
Globally, our environmental commitment focuses on responsible products, responsible facility management and responsible supply chain/product lifecycle.
Samsung has been making energy-efficient and eco-friendly products since 1995 and today has programs in 60 countries to collect and recycle used home appliances. In 2012 Samsung Electronics GHG emissions were 47% below 2008 levels, and we recycled 94% of all waste that would have gone into landfills or incinerators.
Samsung Solve for Tomorrow is a competition for students in primary and secondary schools and tertiary institutions to show their ideas using technology to solve an environmental issue and create a greener Hong Kong.
This is the first year that Samsung Electronics Hong Kong has held the competition.
There are more than HK$3.7 million in prizes to encourage students and schools to share their imaginative, practical and inspirational ideas about solving environmental problems.
Students’ ideas will be published in a booklet that will be available to Hong Kong residents to raise awareness of the environmental issues, and ways to create a greener, smarter city.
Winning entries will also have the chance to be brought to life through funding from the Samsung Realization Plan.
