SK is committed to advancing the communities where we do business by continually creating both economic and social value.


Why

SK's Choice to Realize Social Values

Society today is undergoing profound change through technological advancements and scientific innovation. New paradigms are required to better conceptualize the relationship between business and society. As such, companies can no longer focus exclusively on their customers, employees, and shareholders, but must also consider their impact on affected communities and members of the wider public.

At SK, we recognize that companies are no longer solely accountable for the returns they generate for shareholders, and must also consider the social value created for the wider community.

How

Social Enterprise Ecosystem

SK views social enterprises as highly specialized and effective organizations for solving social problems. We believe that for-profit companies can play an integral role in supporting the social enterprise ecosystem to drive up the sustainability of these entities and to ensure they continue to maximize the generation of social value.

Double Bottom Line (DBL)

CSR is fast becoming an outdated, passive driver of value. SK believes that it must be superseded by a business model that is articulated around the joint generation of financial returns and social impact. The idea behind this forward-thinking model is that both of these objectives are mutually reinforcing and can be grown both simultaneously and steadily. SK's Double Bottom Line is the embodiment of this approach.

Shared Infrastructure

In an effort to maximize social value, SK is challenging the assumptions behind modern business models. We are experimenting with shared infrastructure models with a range of external stakeholders to generate innovative solutions that better address clearly identified social and business needs.

Social Value Community

SK recognizes the importance of making a collective impact and mobilizing the resources and competencies of its people and external stakeholders to address complex social needs. Recent efforts include the establishment of a fully fledged social value community to increase social awareness and maximize social value output.
