As well as working to create beautiful landscaping, Samsung C&T’s Engineering & Construction Group is working hard to create an ecologically sustainable space. To further this aim, it has signed a business agreement with the Korea Arboreta and Gardens Institute (KoAGI) to make use of the best native Korean plants with quality verified by KoAGI in its Raemian complexes.
The Group plans to lead the practice of its ESG management goals by contributing to the revitalization of local plant nurseries while simultaneously preserving local biodiversity.
For example, the plants selected by KoAGI last October as Garden Pants of the Year for 2022 have been planted in the Raemian One Bailey apartment complex, and there are plans to incorporate future Garden Plants of the Year each year to new Raemian complexes.
In addition, Samsung C&T plans to plant native tree species that KoAGI wants to grow in urban areas in Raemian complexes, so that they can be seen in Samsung C&T apartments. Moreover, E&C Group aims to identify various plants with verified quality, activate the development of new varieties by local farmers, and contribute to expanding sales channels and the spread of gardening culture.
