Our Response to Climate Change

Strategies for Climate Change

We are responding speedily to climate change trends in the real estate and renewable and new energy sectors. We are establishing plans to convert our portfolio to eco-friendly, low-carbon business beyond reducing carbon emissions, striving for more fundamental changes. Not only that, we have set and implemented SBTi-based greenhouse gas reduction targets according to TCFD recommendations in order to respond to the NZE2050 global milestone.

Responses against Climate Change

Scenario Analysis and Risk Management

We examine mid to long term business strategies by analyzing the global milestones for the IEA’s 1.5℃ scenario (NZE2050). In case of real-estate development business, land use and convenience, use of raw materials, indoor environment, energy efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions, and ease of maintenance are considered in order to minimize the impact on the environment throughout the life-cycle. Based on this considerations, we will secure eco-friendly certifications for all development projects.

Net Zero Roadmap

2030 Net Zero

SK D&D’s management goal in responding to climate change is to ‘create sustainable space and energy’. We have established mid-to long-term plans for Scope 1, 2 Net Zero and long term plans for Scope 3 Net Zero. We hope to develop sustainable space through strengthening of eco-friendly portfolio and active ESG management, realizing Net Zero. We will also continue our efforts to respond to climate change while communicating progress for 2030 Net Zero with external stakeholders.

2030 Net zero Roadmap

Net Zero Implementation Method

Reduction of direct and indirect emissions (RE100 & EV100)

We plan to implement strategies to reduce Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions from real estate development and operation and renewable energy business as a mid-term strategy for net zero business sites. We plan to continue our GHG reduction strategies by reestablishing Net Zero targets and announcing RE 100 (100% conversion to renewable energy) implementation.

Reduction of other indirect emissions (ZEB & eco-friendly building development)

Reduction of Scope 3 GHG emissions is a key part of our long-term strategy for net zero GHG emissions throughout the entire value chain. SK D&D aims to minimize impact on the environment throughout the real estate development process. We plan to reduce GHG emissions along our value chain by obtaining green building certification, supplying clean energy, and strengthening GHG emission management across the entire investment and operation portfolio.

Managing GHG Emissions

We are managing and responding to company-wide GHG emissions and energy consumption in order to understand the seriousness of the climate crisis. Although SK D&D is not included in the domestic GHG-related system, we are preemptively building and operating a company-wide GHG and energy management system in accordance with domestic GHG emission calculation and certification guidelines. In addition to GHG emissions management at business sites (Scope 1 and 2), we also manage emissions outside of business sites (Scope 3), completing third-party assurance to ensure accuracy and reliability.

** SK D&D does not emit hazardous chemicals, ozone depleting substances, or air pollutants due to the nature of its business.
