SK ecoplant’s social contributions are aligned with the SK Group’s philosophy of “maximizing happiness.” All employees share the awareness that co-prosperity with the local community leads to the creation of Social Value (SV). Based on such philosophy and awareness, we actively engage in social contribution activities in order to fulfill our corporate social responsibilities and achieve the sustainable development and society. Especially, as a leading company in environment and energy business, SK ecoplant carries out social contribution programs with consideration of needs in the local community as well as the relevance to our business, and promoted signature programs.
The major themes of social contribution activities in 2023 are classified into “local community” and “support for future generations.” In terms of practicing social contribution for the local community, we are focusing on environmental campaigns such as throwing Effective Micro-organisms (EM) mud ball to improve the water quality of rivers and streams and plogging for the better environment of the Jongno district area. Regarding the support for future generations, we initiated a project of sponsoring Sundukwon, a child welfare facility in Jongno District and are putting efforts into elevating children’s happiness through facility renovation and educational support. In addition, we are operating an in-company campaign for carbon reduction, the 'ESG Practice Program'. It includes activities such as reducing the energy use and waste emissions and recycling goods of members. We issue SV points according to the participation of the members. The accumulated points are converted into donations and used for social contribution activities. Donation targets are also selected through a vote of employees. In this way, we are actively encouraging the participation of employees.
