Response to Climate Change
Preemptive Management of GHG Emissions
GHG Response Strategy
GS Caltex establishes response strategies based on preemptive analysis on the impact of GHG emissions. We forecast mid- to long-term changes in GHG emissions by analyzing internal/external environmental change in line with the national roadmap for GHG reduction and our own management strategies. We are also responding to climate change through our internal GHG emissions monitoring process.
Emissions Trading System
GS Caltex is an active participant in the emissions trading system in accordance with the Korean government’s GHG and energy policies and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Direct or Indirect emissions(Scope1&2) : 8,047,254 tCO2eq (2019) → 7,788,771 tCO2eq (2020)
GHG Reduction Activities
GS Caltex is reducing energy usage and GHG emissions by optimizing energy efficiency at worksites, and we engaged in a variety of activities outside the company to reduce GHG. One such activity, the Cookstove Project, provided high efficiency cooking appliances to developing nations. The cookstoves help conserve the environment, improve health of the people, and enhance quality of life in the countries while reducing the overall level of GHG emissions in the world as part of our efforts to combat climate change.
Benefits of GHG Response Activities
Reduced cooking time, improved conditions for domestic labor
Health benefits from protection against hazardous substances in smoke and ashes
Conservation of Environment
Fewer trees needed for firewood, leading to forest conservation
Carbon credit to counterbalance domestic emissions
* Carbon credit: A company’s certified efforts to reduce GHG emissions outside worksites can be converted to carbon credit.
