At Samsung, we strive to create social and environmental values as well as economic values through our sustainability management so as to contribute to the betterment of the global society. Since such social and environmental values are difficult to quantify, we took a ‘quality over quantity’ approach in setting and managing our sustainability management goals. Since 2016, however, we have adopted the ‘True Value’ method of KPMG that quantifies social and environmental indicators so that we can visualize the values that we create.
The positive (+) and negative (-) numbers of respective indicators represent the total social values that we either created or reduced over the past year by December 31st of 2016. This approach enables us to go beyond mere financial values generated through business conduct and include socio-economic and social values to ultimately paint the whole picture of the True Value that we create at Samsung.
