Creating Social Values

In compliance with the SK Group’s principle of ‘Double Bottom Line (DBL) Management’, SK ecoplant intends to maximize the creation of economic and social values by enhancing our ESG management. We convert social value into a form of currency to identify the actual magnitude of the value created and strive to expand its positive impact by revising and mitigating negative impacts. These ultimately represent an opportunity for business model innovation, enhancing the sustainability of the company. In 2021, we created a total of 770.4 billion KRW in social value, including 96.6 billion KRW generated in environmental and social values through our product service.

BM innovation through the pursuit of DBL

'Pursuit of DBL (Double Bottom Line)' refers to pursuing creation of both economic and social values in all business activities. SK ecoplant is innovating its business model (BM) in a form that can capture social values through the pursuit of DBL.

Social Value Assessment

The purpose of social value assessment is to increase the positive impact (+) by identifying the nature (+/-) and scale of the value created by the corporate through monetization; to improve negative impact (-) by setting/managing goals for improvement, ultimately returning greater value to society. SK ecoplant is going to identify social problems related to business through social value improvement activities, and to utilize them as business model innovation opportunities so to improve sustainability of the corporate.
