Samsung said on Thursday that it has joined the RE100 initiative and will target reaching net zero carbon emission by 2025.

RE100 stands for Renewable Energy 100% and its aim is to have companies use 100% renewable energy by 2025.

Samsung said it uses the most energy among ICT manufacturers __ it used 25.8TWh in 2021.

Most of its overseas operations have had carbon emission goals but this is the first time it had announced a comprehensive plan that encompasses all its operations.

Samsung said it plans to spend over 7 trillion won to reduce processed gas emissions, reuse and recycle used electronic devices, conserve water and reduce pollutants.

The spending plan doesn’t include the cost of reaching its renewable energy use goal, which means the company will likely be spending more overall.

Its consumer electronic division, called Device Experience by the firm, will reach the goal first in 2030.

All its operations, including its chip division Device Solutions, will meet the goal in 2025, Samsung said.

The tech giant will develop new technologies to process gas emitted from wafer fabrication by 2030.

It will use fewer LNG boilers and is expanding the use of alternative sources, Samsung said.

The tech giant, which is the world’s largest memory semiconductor maker, said it was also working on developing an ultra low-power memory chip that will reduce power consumption in data centers and mobile devices by 2025.

Samsung will also aim to use 30% less power in its main products in seven categories, smartphones, TVs, refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners, PCs and monitors by 2030 compared to 2019.
