Samsung Canada recognized with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Leadership Award for Sustainability Partnership
Award recognizes excellence in work to advance FSC’s mission to protect and preserve Canadian forests
Samsung Canada is proud to receive the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Leadership Award for its commitment to supporting FSC’s mission to protect and preserve Canada’s forests. The FSC Leadership Awards recognize companies that achieve excellence in using the FSC system to achieve organizational success.
A long-time partner of FSC, the world’s most trusted forest certification system, Samsung Canada implements FSC-certified packaging across its products, and more recently, supported FSC through a dedicated fundraising campaign in honour of Earth Month. Throughout the month of April, Samsung Canada donated $1 to FSC Canada for every purchase made in-store and online at Samsung.com. In addition, Samsung Canada also donated an additional $10 to FSC Canada for every review left on its website from April to June 2023.
“It has never been more important to come together to support the health and longevity of our forests, and we are incredibly proud to support FSC in their mission,” said Jihoon Lee, President and CEO, Samsung Electronics Canada. “We are thrilled to receive this recognition and look forward to continuing our partnership with FSC to build a better tomorrow for all.”
With a Canada-wide focus on enabling A Smarter Future with Samsung, working towards sustainability and environmental stewardship continue to be a priority. Globally, this commitment is brought to life through Samsung’s “Everyday Sustainability” vision, which strives for sustainability through its products, operations, and community support. Samsung has made a global commitment to achieve net zero direct and indirect carbon emissions by 2025, along with a reduction in e-waste to landfills.
