2023 Impact Highlights

Throughout Sama’s history, we’ve not only focused on how we act responsibly but also on how we best measure the impact of our actions.  Our 2023 accomplishments are worth celebrating, and what makes them especially important is how they generate positive outcomes for our key stakeholders.

From the local impact of fair pay—which creates a ripple effect to support community and families, and expands access to education—to the global impact of focused climate action, Sama is proud of these accomplishments and continues to challenge ourselves to do more.
