SEOUL -- Samsung Electronics will designate five of its semiconductor facilities as no-entry zones for diesel vehicles. Some 3,000 vehicles that regularly visit Samsung's premises for various purposes including the delivery of materials will be replaced with eco-friendly vehicles.

In April 2020, Samsung revealed a plan to replace all of its internal combustion vehicles with eco-friendly vehicles by 2030. Cars for executives, delivery trucks and garbage vehicles will use electricity or hydrogen as their main source of fuel. Some 2,000 trucks operated by partner companies will be affected by the transition.

Under a partnership with the Ministry of Environment, government subsidies will be provided for the purchase of new eco-friendly vehicles, charging infrastructure and the construction of shuttle bus stops at five Samsung semiconductor facilities.
