Samsung: Global Water Resource Risk Analysis and Strategy


Country Type Strategy
Korea Physical risk (floods)     Create wetlands and dikes in response to floods affecting streams in the vicinity of our worksites •    Purchase disaster insurance policies and regularly check flood control equipment
India Physical risk (water quality degradation) • Increase the frequency of conducting in-house water quality analysis and the efficiency of water treatment facilities
Poland Reputational risk (wastewater leaks) • Build an emergency response system and conduct regular drills in preparation for wastewater leaks
Egypt Physical risk (droughts) • Secure water tanks to store water sufficient for one day operation of production faciities on average
South Africa Regulatory risk (discharge) • Sewage and wastewater from worksites move to the terminal treatment facility within the industrial complex for processing, and thus pose lower risks of environmental accidents (no in-house sewage/wastewater treatment facility under operation)
Common Physical risk (water quality degradation) • Secure water quality through the pre-intake water treatment process
  Physical risk (water outages) • Install dual water intake facilities and water collecting facilities to prevent production delays
  Regulatory risk (regulatory change in water use and discharge) • Abide by the in-house criteria stricter than country-specific legal discharge criteria
  Regulatory risk (enactment of efficiency standards) • Conduct water efficiency reviews in building new facilities and make facility investment to improve the water efficiency of existing facilities
  Regulatory risk (uncertainty over new regulations) • Continuously monitor global environmental regulations
  Reputational risk (lawsuits raised due to wastewater)     Continuously monitor effluent discharge •    Build an environmental management system early on for new manufacturers
