Managing Business for a Sustainable Earth

Climate Change Governance System

SK networks has adjusted its business portfolio in the course of reducing the impact it has on climate change by voting on the following issues during the past BOD meetings: LPG business transfer (February 2017), petrochemical product wholesale transfer (August 2017), Australia coal business withdrawal (October 2019), and petrochemical product retail transfer (March 2020). In March 2021, we created the ESG Management Committee consisting of five independent directors and the CEO following the BOD resolution to actively respond to environmental issues, including climate change, in addition to social and governance-related issues.

Net Zero 2040

SK networks is currently considering joining the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) after declaring Net Zero 2040 in June 2021. We intend to respond to climate change and solve environmental issues with sincerity.
