Climate change has grown so detrimental as to threaten our economy and security. According to the IPCC, in order for us not to pass the ‘Tipping Point’ where there will be irreversible consequences from climate change, the rise in temperature should be limited to 1.5℃ or under. Global efforts are underway and Korea has also made the 2050 carbon neutrality declaration and enforced the Framework Act on Carbon Neutrality to transition to a low carbon economy.

SK D&D advances environmental management with an aim to reduce GHG emissions by expanding the supply of green buildings and the generation of renewable energy. In line with SK Group’s 2040 Net Zero initiative, we develop plans to identify and mitigate the environmental impact generated within and outside our operations. Furthermore, we align our environmental performance in respective business areas with KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) to elevate the execution of environmental management on the part of our employees. We also achieved the environmental management system certification (ISO 14001) to practice systematic environmental management.
