ESG Values

SK DBL Management

SK aims to achieve sustainable stability and growth by adopting the Double Bottom Line (DBL) principle in its management philosophy. DBL pursues and manages both economic value (EV) and social value (SV), in contrast to the conventional Single Bottom Line principle that pursues only economic value and profits.

Social Value

Social value is the sum of corporate management social performance activities that contribute to resolving social issues.

Social issues are structural problems suffered by many people in society that cannot be resolved by individual efforts alone. Social performances by corporate management activities are classified as “Performance through indirect economic contributions"; " Environmental performance "; and "Social performance."

ESG Management System

SK discovery pursues sustainability in all its businesses. We built an ESG management infrastructure to implement ESG management tailored to individual businesses as we identify issues that need improvement and offer support for execution.

ESG Management Process

ESG Governance

To establish an ESG management system and strengthen its capability to respond to risks, SK discovery appointed a Chief ESG Officer and dedicated staff. As a holding company, we are continuing to lead ESG management activities and working to create social value that results in sustainable growth.

By hosting monthly workshops headed by the Chief ESG Officer and ESG leaders from various sectors, we continuously establish ESG strategies and frameworks, manage risks as well as activities in reviewing and improving goals and performance. The workshops have been held since March 2021.

We report our ESG management plan, key activities and performance to the ESG Committee, which is overseen by the Board of Directors. The ESG Committee deliberates and resolves any outstanding issues.

ESG Framework

ESG Information Disclosure
