CSR maturity

D-
Samsung does not publish a report on the company's societal responsibility, but a sustainability report instead. For all that, this report presents all aspects of the CSR, undertakings with stakeholders, monitoring of GRI recommendations and an audit by the independent firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers. In fact, the report has been validated as an "A" from the point of view of the GRI. Samsung is also the only company which can pride itself on achieving an "A" from the Carbon Disclosure Project, a not for profit company which makes an inventory of information linked to climate changes and companies. 
From an international perspective, the company is ranked 90th in the Global 100 and 22nd in the Top 500 "Green Rankings" published by Newsweek.
In 2010, the company reduced its CO2 emissions by 31% with respect to 2008, a reduction which complies with the clean development mechanisms of the United Nations.

Greenpeace welcomes Samsung's efforts relating to the removal of chemicals and gave it 7th place out of 15 in 2011 with a score of 4.1. A fine example of transparency which could have been perfect, if Samsung offered information with as much detail for its products. All the more so as the company claims that it has a level of 91% of eco-products in its ranges and more than 2,210 external environmental certificates associated with them.  
However, with regard to end of life and recycling, there is no doubt that Samsung has set up the measures needed. However, for all that, it is difficult to evaluate them due to the lack of information about them.

Socially, the company offers to free up time for staff to get personally involved in causes, whether they are directly supported by a Samsung foundation like "Hope for Children" or independent from the company's activities. Most of these indicators are rising, except for some which are falling, like the employment rate for women in the company.
Finally, Samsung condemns conflicts associated with the extraction of raw materials in the Congo.
