SK Telecom (SKT) and KEPCO signed an agreement to use 44.6-gigawatt hours of renewable energy annually for two ICT Infracenters in Seoul and Seongnam, a southeastern satellite city. KEPCO will issue a certificate that verifies electricity used at 5G control towers. Using renewable energy is a vital element of environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) management, a trendy corporate operation method that focuses on the use of green energy and environmentally-friendly management.
"While we contribute to the reduction of the emission of greenhouse gas by using renewable energy, we will accelerate our company's ESG management by adopting eco-friendly information communication technology," SKT's corporate center head Yun Poong-young said in a statement on February 22.
In December 2020, SK Group, the country's third-largest conglomerate, joined Renewable Energy 100 (RE100), a global initiative that brings together the world's most influential enterprises committed to using 100 percent renewable energy by 2050.
