      Philosophy

      “Further Together”

      Guided by our founding principle of “contributing to society and nation through business” and its philosophy of “trust and loyalty,” Hanwha has been working hard to build strong trust with local communities. We believe in going further together, not faster alone because as a dedicated corporate citizen, it's’ not only our social responsibility, it’s part of who we are.

      “Sharing Energy for Life”

      • Energy for Life - Building energy for a better tomorrow
      • “Further Together” - Sharing for win-win growth

      Vision & Mission

      See next.

      “Building a Brighter Tomorrow Together” - At Hanwha, we believe we can go further together and create a better tomorrow by:

      • Encouraging employees to contribute time and donations to bring a little more happiness in people’s lives
      • Promoting and leading programs in communities to foster growth through cooperation, sharing and inclusion
      • Creating values that reduce impact to the environment and instead, add to a brighter and healthier future

      “Make a Brighter World” Fund

      “Make a Brighter World” is a fund-raising activity that is made possible through Hanwha employee donations and the company’s gift-matching contributions. The fund supports employees in need, senior citizens who live alone, young breadwinners, social welfare facilities, and diverse volunteer activities. Our work to help is part of our efforts to fulfil our social responsibilities and to build a world that cares.

      • Every month, 500 won is deducted from monthly salaries of employees who opt into the program
      • 150% of every employee monetary contribution is Hanwha and donated
      • The donations from the employees and Hanwha are combined then used towards CSR activities

      Learning Energy for Tomorrow

      Since 2013, we’ve been offering our “Energy Class for Tomorrow” program to elementary school children. The program allows children to learn that energy is indispensable to humanity. The children also learn about ways to conserve energy and how renewable energy can lead to a pollution-free future.

      So far, 13,500 children from more than 190 schools and welfare facilities have participated in the program. Children have the chance to familiarize themselves with different concepts of energy and gain first-hand experience on generating electricity using only sunlight by building solar cars and ships. The success of these classes encourages us to continue our efforts to enrich classes with even more interesting and meaningful content. What we do is but one way of how programs like ours can influence people to make the world a better place and have a sustainable future. The starting point is when the children are young.
