Doosan Group declared its firm resolution to practice CSR management and create a “Proud Global Doosan” on the basis of “Doosan Credo”. Moreover, to anticipate and promptly respond to the various CSR requirements and standards within and outside Korea, a group-wide CSR strategy has been established consisting of clearly-defined objectives and missions, in four key areas and ten priority tasks. Doosan Corporation has been practicing CSR management based on Doosan Group’s CSR
value framework. In particular, as the necessity to increase business values through CSR is growing within society, we added ‘CSR Value Creation’ and expanded the CSR area, which used to focus on CSR risk management activity such as meeting legal regulations and industrial standards, to understanding and creating social values.
Doosan’s CSR decision-making assembly consists of CSR Committee, CSR Subcommittees, and BG/BU level CSR Operation Meeting that is operated in accordance with the initiative body.
· CSR Committee
As Doosan’s supreme decision-making body, the CSR Committee develops CSR strategic directions, reviews CSR-related management activities, and inspects the progress of improvement tasks and implementation plans. The CSR Committee is composed of representatives from all of the company’s BG/BUs, Corporate Center, and Administration Center, as well as executives from its key departments. CEO of Doosan Corporation serves as the chairperson, with the relevant officers assuming responsibility for seven subcommittees, namely, the human rights, EHS, R&D, shared growth, ethics, personal information, and social contribution. The heads of BG/BU participate in the CSR Committee as members to enable each business division to aggressively promote CSR activities. The CSR Committee holds two meetings per year, which serve as a forum for designing improvement plans through in-depth discussion on key CSR issues.
