Samsung Electronics celebrated World Water Day on March 22 as 44,000 employees, local governments, NGOs and local residents participated in various water conservation activities across 22 worksites around the world. Established by the United Nations, World Water Day serves as a reminder that access to water is a human right and spotlights efforts to address water scarcity and contamination.

Since 2006, Samsung has conducted numerous events involving employees and local communities — including river cleanup around worksites, water conservation campaigns and more. In line with this year’s World Water Day theme of “Leveraging Water for Peace,” Samsung organized special activities such as providing drinking water support for those in need and educating the general public on water conservation.

“On World Water Day, Samsung Electronics executives and employees take time to reflect on the importance of clean water by participating in water conservation activities,” said Junhwa Lee, Vice President of Global EHS, Device eXperience (DX) Division at Samsung Electronics. “We must continually strive to ensure clean water is available to future generations.
