  • Environmental Management

The constant growth of our business has been increasing the number of our employees and business sites, which has a greater impact on the environment. With the emergency of various laws and regulations at home and abroad, we are faced with growing demand and requirements from stakeholders for environmental management. Against this backdrop, we have established strategic directions and a response system for environmental risk management, based on which multifaceted efforts are being made to improve.

Environmental Management Policy

LX Semicon has drawn up and disclosed its environmental management policy in compliance with the ISO 14001 to ensure its abidance by environmental laws and regulations as well as to respond to various environmental issues.

All our employees make all-out efforts to preserve a pleasant and abundant environment by fully understanding our environ- mental policy and engaging in regular communication. The CEO leads by example in fulfilling our company’s social responsibility to motivate all our employees to engage in environment management, and promote transparent environmental management. ❶ Comply with environmental laws and related requirements to operate the organization in a legitimate and appropriate manner
❷ Mitigate energy and resource consumption to become an eco-friendly workplace
❸ Carry out persistent activities for environmental performance enhancement
Mid- to Long-Roadmap

Under the direction of ‘enhance environmental values for future generations’ in environmental management, we have obtained the international standard ISO 14001 at more of our business sites to ramp up our environmental management system. We have also established mid- to long-term goals to further improve our environmental management. By combining all of these efforts, we aim to fulfill our environmental responsibilities and contribute to building a sustainable future.

The organization dedicated to environmental management has developed environmental policies and collaborated with relevant business departments to identify areas for improvement. Our environmental goals and performance are monitored and managed annually. We comply with stricter regulations through our Plan-Do-Check-Act process, which includes internal and external evaluations.

Risk Management

With the purpose of understanding environmental risks and impacts that our operations, design, products, and services have on the environment, we have conducted environmental impact assessments. All our business operations with regard to products and services are subject to the assessments. Through the assessments, we analyze environmental effects of our products and services, such as chemical use, air and water pollution, and soil contamination. We also consider the impact from a business perspective, including compliance with laws and regulations.

Eco-friendly Activities

LX Semicon held a flogging activity in 2022, attended by 1,600 employees from all LX Semicon business sites, including Gangnam Campus, Yangjae Campus, and Daejeon Campus. Employees took a walk on designated courses around each business site, picked up trash, and carried out environmental cleanup activities such as separate collection. We will continue to strive to discover various eco-friendly activities.
