Since it was founded in 1969, SK chemicals has continued to grow and develop through eco-friendly materials and health care businesses.
Through the constant challenges and innovations over the past 50 years, we were the first to develop polyester resins for bottles in Korea, second to produce commercial PETG in the world, first to develop a new domestic drug and natural medicines in Korea, the first to develop a arthiritis treatment patch in the world, and the first to develop a 4 cell-cultured influenza vaccine in the world. SK chemicals has established itself as one of the key influential companies in the domestic and overseas chemical/pharmaceutical market.
Based on valuable experiences and history, SK chemicals will continue to strive to achieve our grand vision of “leaping forward as a global leading company providing eco-friendly materials and total healthcare solutions.”
The green chemical business is expanding its existing PETG business and is striving to achieve vision based on two axes; plastic recycling to protect the global environment and manufacturing bio-based plastics. The life science business focuses on building the foundation for growth of the existing health care business, and is striving to further accelerate mid- to long-term growth through cooperation projects with domestic and overseas partners.
To achieve our goal, SK chemicals will advance the operation excellence and establish an AI/DT-based infrastructure to secure competitiveness through innovation. This will enable us to pursue individual growth and organizational development together.
In addition, SK chemicals is committed to faithfully implementing the ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) policy as a new principle of corporate management. We will prioritize social values and create a healthy corporate governance structure to pursue the happiness of all stakeholders, including members, customers, shareholders, and local communities, and further contribute to the happiness of humanity.
Dear members, customers, and shareholders of SK chemicals — SK chemicals constantly advances and grows. We are certain that if we become one and immerse ourselves on the basis of our confidence in happiness, the process of immersion itself will make us happy, and we will finally get one step closer to the happiness we desire.
SK chemicals will always strive for your happiness. Thank you.
