Samsung vows to use renewable energy sources by 2020


Samsung Electronics, the world’s biggest smartphone maker, has vowed to convert its operations in the United States, Europe and China to using only solar and other renewable energy sources by 2020.

Following its announcement on Thursday, the tech giant joins Apple and other Silicon Valley companies in delivering such a commitment for future, but it encounters greater challenges due to its vast factory network, while other companies use outside contractors for manufacturing.

Samsung, also a major producer of computer chips, said its plans include installing 42,000 square meters (420,000 square feet) of solar panels this year at its headquarters in Suwon, South Korea.

South Korea gets 6% of its energy from renewable sources, relying on coal and nuclear power for the rest.
