A man in a formal suit is at stepping onto the lowest rung of a tall red ladder that rises in a desolate plain under a blue sky.
Stakeholders Engagement
Data & Policies

Identifying Stakeholder ESG Needs

SK management’s ultimate purpose, defined by the SK Management System (SKMS), is the happiness and sustainability of employees. Keeping stakeholders happy is a prerequisite for keeping employees happy, so the SKMS defines the values we uphold to maintain stakeholder happiness. Everyone at SK has a responsibility to pursue the happiness of stakeholders. By dividing key stakeholders into five groups—employees, customers, business partners, shareholders/investors and community—we identify each group’s priorities and incorporate those into our management. We will always share our values with stakeholders as we pursue achievable, stable and continuous growth.

Key Issues of Stakeholders

As a pure holding company, SK Discovery does not engage in direct business activities. By providing services through our subsidiaries, we offer customers a range of values and satisfactions that let us grow together. In addition, working with business partners to produce and deliver our products, we create fair and competitive ecosystems of cooperative win-win paths. As we create shareholder value, we play a variety of beneficial social roles, such as protecting the environment, creating jobs, improving quality of life and bolstering community infrastructures. In communications with stakeholders, we work to identify important issues and disclose as much information as possible.
