Samsung Canada and Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Canada team up to help protect and preserve Canadian forests
To recognize Earth Month, Samsung will raise funds to help protect our forests
As Canadians once again celebrate Earth Month this April, Samsung Canada is collaborating with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Canada to launch a new fundraising campaign in support of FSC Canada’s mission to protect healthy and resilient forests in Canada.
Throughout the month of April, Samsung Canada will donate $1 to FSC Canada, up to a maximum $10,000 CAD, for every purchase made in-store and online at Samsung.com. In addition, through June 2023, for each review that Canadians leave on Samsung’s website (whether positive or negative), Samsung will donate an additional $10 to FSC Canada, up to a maximum $6,000 CAD.
“At Samsung Canada, we recognize the responsibility we share to help protect our environment and try to create a more sustainable future for all,” said Jennifer Groh, Sr. Director, Corporate Citizenship and Communications, Samsung Canada. “Together with FSC Canada, we are helping to create and preserve healthy and resilient forests.”
Samsung strives to make and distribute products with more eco-conscious resources, with over 220,000 tonnes of recycled plastic used in Samsung products globally since 2009, and progress being made to double that number by 2030. Samsung has also made a global commitment to achieve zero waste to landfills and reduce its e-waste by 2025, as well as achieve net zero direct and indirect carbon emissions by 2050.
As the most recognized, trusted, and rigorous forest certification system, FSC’s labels verify that products have been sourced responsibly and sustainably through all elements of the supply chain, helping brands and consumers work together to help protect the future of forests. FSC labels represent a commitment to supporting zero deforestation, the safeguarding of ancient and endangered forests, a fair wage and work environment, biodiversity preservation, and community land rights, including those of Indigenous Peoples.
