Environmental Story

Environmental Management Policy

SK bioscience’s SHE(Safety, Health & Environment ) management policy lies at the heart of our environmental management system. It contains our commitments to protecting the earth and the environment from various perspectives. Our commitments include minimizing the ecological impacts throughout the entire business operations, managing environmental performance for all business sites and partners, complying with environmental laws, and responding to climate change.

Minimizing the Environmental Impacts of Business Operations and Products
  • We do our utmost to use resources and energy sustainably, reduce environmental pollutants and chemical emissions. We recycle wastewater throughout the entire process of business operations from R&D to production, distribution, and disposal.
  • We operate an environmental management system and continuously manage improvement performance by regularly monitoring all businesses and partners.
  • We comply with environmental laws and regulations and invest in combating global climate change and preserving local ecosystems and environments.

At the HQ and L HOUSE, SK bioscience has established and manages a division dedicated to environmental management. We have specifically prepared a system to reduce environmental impacts by promptly responding to environmental issues within our business sites. By reflecting global trends, SK bioscience intends to reset and clarify the scope of environmental management. We have been rebuilding our management system to reduce environmental pollution and the impact on local communities throughout the product life cycle, from raw material introduction to manufacturing, distribution, and disposal.
