We are designing our facilities to be both accident-free and eco-friendly,
following strict corporate standards and prevention systems.
ECO-YHES is the unique value of Hanwha Corporation's management, which aims to achieve sustainable development and
social responsibility by incorporating a combination of HES (Health, Environment and Safety) and YES (positive word) into the form of a forest (environmental symbol).
The focus of ECO-2000, an environmental conservation movement that has been
in effect since 1991, was adapted to the environmental preservation movement. However, ECO-YHES is a 21st-century company strategy that extends to the safety (health, hygiene) sector.
In the 21st century, social interest in not only the environment but also energy, safety, health and hygiene is growing. Furthermore, environment, energy, safety, health, and hygiene are evaluated to be an important factor of corporate value.
We continue to use 'ECO' for the succession of ECO-2000. In addition, it is pronounced 'eco-yes' by adding Y, forming a sound that matches the meaning of 'YES' in English, which has a positive meaning, to HES, which symbolizes health, environment, and safety.
Health, environment and safety have equal priorities and indicate the company`s commitment.
All the plants of have obtained environmental management system and safety and health management system certification. We have been carrying out environmental conservation activities for the local community and environmental improvement activities at its workplaces. We are also working to prevent safety accidents for employees.
We are preventing accidents through work permit system regarding all constructions or works that pose a risk of environmental pollution or safety accidents by having them reviewed and approved by the person in charge in advance.
In addition to frequent inspections carried out at the workplace, environmental safety experts of the company conduct inspections once a year and make improvements to the missing inspections that were found. In addition, large-scale construction and projects are always reviewed by environmental safety experts to ensure that environmental safety-related problems do not occur.
Considering all possible situations, we have a response system in case of pollutant discharge and fire accident. The Sejong plant has a chemical fire engine that conducts regular firefighting drills to prepare and understand scenarios for anticipated emergencies.
In conjunction with local environmental groups, we continue to clean up the surrounding rivers.
We are participating in the movement to create cleaner rivers by throwing mudballs made of microorganisms that purify water quality, removing harmful plants, etc.
We support elementary school students near our plants with nature ecology activities to help them remember the preciousness of nature and to preserve the natural ecosystem.
We are creating clean workplaces through periodic cleaning activities both inside and outside the worksite, cleaning roads inside and outside the workplace, removing leaves and foreign matter
in manholes, removing weeds from roadside and cleaning leaves.
