Samsung continues sustainability push with six new restaurants

Samsung’s latest sustainability push isn’t about energy efficiency but something completely different – sustenance. Namely, the company is just wrapping up a tender to build half a dozen new restaurants at various locations throughout its home country. These are essentially cafeterias; employee-only outlets which will be constructed within existing corporate offices.

Samsung approached this internal expansion in quite a methodical manner. Nevermind the fact that it used a tender to select contractors to partner with; it’s that the decision, itself, took months, with the company ultimately going over some 40 bids from all over the country. In the end, it picked six catering firms and restaurants to partner with, one for each location, local media reports. F&B and Ivy Food are some of the names that made the shortlist which has yet to be publicized in its entirety.

Samsung’s sustainability efforts are getting noticed internationally

Apart from a handful of offices in and around Seoul, Samsung also intends to build an in-house restaurant at its Gumi-si assembly line in central South Korea. All six locations are scheduled to open by the end of the year, likely sometime in December. Sustainability efforts aside, the immediate goal of this initiative is to increase the quality of working conditions at Samsung by offering employees a wider selection of high-quality meals, a company official said. This is hardly a surprise, coming from the world’s best employer.

In related news, Samsung’s global efforts to run a more sustainable business are once again getting noticed internationally. The South Korean giant earned a high-ranking finish at this year’s iteration of Interbrand’s Best Global Brands list.
