Samsung to exclusively use eco-friendly company vehicles by 2030
Samsung Electronics Co. will replace around 800 corporate vehicles with environmentally-friendly ones by 2030, based on its green mobility agreement with the environment ministry.
The South Korean tech giant's partner companies and suppliers will also switch about 2,000 cars to environment-friendly vehicles by 2030.
Samsung and its vendors will first replace about 600 vehicles by 2023 and 1,900 cars by 2025.
Samsung will also limit diesel car use at its five South Korean semiconductor business sites beginning this month.
The environment ministry will subsidize Samsung's replacement of its cars with electric vehicles or hydrogen-powered cars and support the installation of its charging stations.
Samsung expects the shift to green vehicles to reduce an annual 6,200 tons of carbon dioxide emissions and other pollutants.
