Safety Environment Management Policy
All members of Wonik Materials clearly recognize that safety, health, and environment are core values of the business based on responsible ESG management, and we will diligently fulfill our roles to prevent accidents, promote health, and protect the environment.
Safety & health
Protect the lives of employees and achieve zero major industrial accidents by creating a safe and comfortable work environment and realizing the elimination and management of hazardous risk factors through risk assessment.
Actively participate in health promotion activities, including mental health and job stress management, and musculoskeletal disease prevention.
Recognizing that responding to global climate change and building sustainable ecosystems is a common human challenge, we take the lead in reducing greenhouse gases through resource recycling, proper waste disposal, and energy conservation.
Protect the environment in our workplaces and communities through transparent disclosure and systematic management of chemicals.
Legal compliance
We strictly comply with laws and regulations and strive to go beyond them, and actively support our partners in improving their safety and health levels.
Community engagement
We build win-win partnerships with customers and suppliers, and contribute to the development of local communities through continuous safety and environmental conservation activities as a member of the local community.

Environmental risks and expectations response strategies
Type Identify risks Materiality assessment Response strategies
Risk factors Regulation Not subject to GHG regulation, but subject to GHG regulation if energy use is not reduced 1st ISO50001 Certification
→ Established an energy monitoring system ('23)
→ Established and implemented departmental energy reduction goals and strategies to achieve them ('24)
→ Improving eco-friendly energy usage by introducing new and renewable energy installation of solar panels using idle sites (parking lots, etc.) ('23~)
Market Major customers (semiconductor and display companies) are requiring us to reduce GHG emissions from our product supply chain in line with the RE100 declaration 1st
Market Increased production costs due to rising energy raw materials costs 2nd
Opportunity factors Resources Enhance corporate image by proactively responding to eco-friendly activities (such as waste reduction) 1st Goal to reduce waste by 5% year-over-year (annually)
Goal of 70%+ waste recycling ('24)
Empowerment Participate in global initiatives on climate change and the environment to proactively address medium- and long-term risks 2nd Strengthening internal capabilities such as reducing environmental risks through CDP and ESG evaluation response ('25)
Regulation/Market Developing alternative markets in response to strengthening legislation such as the Low Carbon Green Growth Framework Act and the Ozone Layer Protection Act 3rd Preempting the market for a substitute for a controlled substance by introducing a substitute ('30)
Analyze climate change and key environmental risks and opportunities
Wonik Materials identifies the predicted financial and strategic impacts of climate change and major environmental risks, and establishes response strategies and reflects them in decision-making, taking into account their materiality and impact on the business. Risks include the global climate crisis, changes in markets, stakeholder requirements, resource circulation policies, and changes in the physical environment. In the short term, we see investments required by customers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increased investment and recovery costs for extreme weather events as risks, while we see opportunities in securing our customers' business competitiveness and reducing energy costs as opportunities. In the mid- to long-term, we identify the following as risk factors: decrease in sales due to decreased use of GHG substances, decrease in investment when ESG ratings decline, and increase in wastewater and waste treatment costs; and opportunities include securing competitiveness by strengthening customers' businesses and entering the market for GHG substitutes.
Climate change and key environmental risk management processes
Identify and assess risks
Conduct risk assessment for business strategy formulation by the Risk Management Committee based on environmental management systems such as ISO 14001, 50001, etc
Manage risks and opportunities
