Zero Negative Environmental Impact

• Achieve 95% in waste recycling rate at production sites by 2030



  • Expanding Waste Recycling at Business Sites

  • We strive to improve efficiency of our waste recycling processes by establishing take-back and transportation system for waste generated at our Korean production sites and by continuously researching recycling technologies. In addition, in order to achieve zero recycling charges and zero issues, we promote a resource circulation program aimed at increasing the amount of collected e-waste and eliminating risks. Our production sites strive to avoid the landfilling of waste and are continuously expanding their recycling efforts. Moreover, we continuously improve our production process and recycling system in order to reduce waste and expand the use of recycled materials.


  • Recycling of Solar Power Generation Facilities

In order to reduce the negative environmental impact of solar power generation facilities, we intend to actively participate in Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) System for solar panels, which will be introduced in 2023. As waste from solar power generation facilities has been forecast to increase exponentially from 2023, we are working to establish a collection, transportation, and recycling system. Accordingly, we have conducted research into disposal methods of solar modules and developed recycling technologies. In addition, some of our production sites located in Korea recycle solar power plant waste into raw materials such as glass, aluminum, and silicon.
