Samsung C&T's 2019

Dec 16, 2019

On the first day of Christmas, my true love C&T…

built a bridge with communities


2019 was a year of reaching out to various communities, as Samsung C&T’s CSR programs rebuilt communities at home and abroad, supported children in need, fostered future talent, and opened up great fashion choices to disabled people.

A big part of being a sustainable company is encouraging efforts at all levels to adopt eco-friendly habits, and we saw some shining examples of that – staff did particularly well in Singapore, while it was great to see Samsung C&T Trading Group’s Indonesia Palm Plantation get an RSPO certification for managing its eco-friendly business.
