Technology is potentially a dirty sector. Manufacturing processes are energy intensive, and consume a lot of water and mineral resources. Many tech firms get it. Tech giants such as Apple, Google, Facebook and Microsoft have all signed on to RE100, pledging to go 100% renewable energy.
Not so, Samsung, which is Apple’s arch-rival in the mobile handset market. In fact, Samsung currently sources just 1% of its energy from renewable energy.
Today, I signed a Greenpeace petition asking Samsung to change its approach to energy.
