As part of a New Environmental Strategy, Samsung Electronics will be offering a low-carbon diet at its in-house cafeterias. This new diet policy, says Samsung, aims to minimise greenhouse gas emissions generated during food production, packaging, processing, transportation, preparation, and food waste.

Starting in February, Samsung will launch PlanEat Choice, a food corner comprised of low-carbon meals at its headquarters in Suwon, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. Employees will be able to choose from a variety of carbon-diet dishes, including rice with mushrooms, pesto pasta, namul or seasoned vegetables, rice with soybean paste, and dumpling stew.

Besides introducing the low-carbon diet, the organisation plans to replace all disposable products, such as take-out containers, spoons, and coffee cups, at its workplaces in South Korea this year.

The tech conglomerate is also continuing to develop technologies such as ultra-low power-consuming semiconductors and has also joined RE100, a global initiative dedicated to pursuing 100 percent renewable energy.
