Climate change has led to environmental problems such as drought, heavy rainfall, storms etc, becoming a great cause for concern, and driving countries and businesses around the world to join forces in response to the call for strategies to curtail the adverse effects.
Efforts to reduce GHG and minimize environmental impact
In 2021, GS Caltex set up a dedicated organization to actively respond to climate issues. As concerned participants, we are working on a number of projects to develop a roadmap to achieve carbon neutrality, including finding ways to reduce greenhouse gases with a long-term perspective, as well as uncovering business opportunities to secure a new profit pool.
In addition to the ongoing efforts to reduce GHG and minimize the environmental impact of our major businesses, GS Caltex seeks to expand the possibilities of sustainable development by pursuing new eco-friendly businesses.
In response to the global mega-trend on energy conversion, we are focusing on a more efficient use of energy and on creating a circular economy for carbon reduction. This has led to tangible progress in the areas of hydrogen, waste plastic recycling and white bio. As an expression of our commitment to the environment, we launched our integrated eco-friendly brand, ‘Energy Plus Eco’ in April 2022.
