Environmental Management

Lotte E&C’s philosophy to care about humans and the environment is the first step in our environmental management initiative.

Green Purchasing

 Current status

The green purchasing initiative that we have pursued so far focuses on reducing the environmental impact of materials from construction to operation, and finally, to demolition.
To fulfill our responsibilities to society beyond simply complying with environmental regulations, we declared a “voluntary pact for industry-wide green purchasing” in 2009 and established a guideline for green purchasing to follow through the commitment. In 2010, we created an actual green purchasing system to do monitoring and strategic expansion of the program.
Lotte E&C will set standards for eco-friendly purchasing metrics on all construction materials so that we can precisely measure the results of our commitment in action.
