A new badge represents a new 'promise'.
Taking ESG as a new management vision,
we declared our commitment to be carbon neutral by 2050.

We will remove carbon emissions from our steel-making process.
From rechargeable battery materials for the new mobility era,
to hydrogen, the next generation clean energy source,
POSCO Group will get ahead in the competition.

And we intend to demonstrate
how devoted we are to achieve carbon net zero through
the eco-friendly materials of the future for the benefit of humankind and the environment.

This is what compels POSCO Group to choose
to be a 'corporate citizenship.'

For a sustainable tomorrow for all people, we propose to build
a better future together as corporate citizenship.
POSCO Group stands with you on this journey.
By striving perpetually for the past 50 years

to manufacture the highest quality steel, we've represented our commitment by living up to our first name,
