The Korea Economic Institute of America presents:

Getting South Korea

to Go Greener


Many large South Korean companies have followed a trend among industrialized countries by embracing environmental protection and sustainability. Korean consumers, investors, and policy initiatives have all contributed to South Korean firms “going green” in recent years. However, despite this heightened interest in environmental responsibility, there is limited understanding of which types of sustainable activities Korean firms have implemented and, consequently, how much these practices are contributing to global sustainability.
Please join KEI and environmental governance expert Younsung Kim for a discussion of her new research on sustainability practices employed by large South Korean firms, including how they can be improved to further the interests of stakeholders and protect the environment.
