South Korea Advocates Environmental Improvement

Greetings,

Some good news from the east, South Korean giant Samsung Electronics has just committed to investing $4Bn to reducing carbon emissions from its manufacturing plants, with the aim of reducing their carbon emissions by 50% by 2013.

This announcement follows on from a statement released by the South Korean government about their $84Bn Green Action Plan. This scheme is aiming to make improvements across the entire national infrastructure including manufacturing, transportation, construction & technology.

It's very reassuring to see one of the world's top ten carbon producers making such a commitment to reduce their emissions.

Onwards & upwards!

Lucy.
