The Social Responsibility Department was established in 2007 and is directly subordinate to the Public Relations and Brand Management Division. The department is staffed with dedicated personnel in charge of the planning and execution of CSR strategies and projects in coordination with cross-departmental operations and has an independent budget. In 2014, the CSR committee, directly subordinate to the board, was officially established with the chairman of the board as the committee chairman and the president as the vice chairman to ensure the participation of the highest governance body in CSR related issues. Top executives from all business groups serve as committee members and identify risks and opportunities for relevant issues in the dimensions of economy, environment, and society with the goal of formulating sustainability strategies and designing a vision blueprint. The progressive planning of concrete actions is executed through the full integration of operational and core resources. These actions are implemented by different functional departments or project teams to generate a highly efficient recycling circulation process.
