The Global Forum is a “networking platform” that SK Group has been operating since 2012 to interact with excellent overseas talent and local experts. Since 2021, the event has been organized by SK Innovation to expand the global network to support the implementation of its “Carbon to Green” strategy.

Local experts, including doctorate holders from prestigious universities and research institutes of the States and employees of global companies in the fields of eco-friendly materials and resource circulation, will participate in the forum to share the latest technologies and market trends related to future energy.

The discussion sessions will be conducted under six themes that are central to SK Innovation’s New Green Portfolio strategies such as clean energy (hydrogen, ammonia, etc.), resource circulation, secondary cells, etc. In particular, a special discussion session on the fields of green materials and Geo Tech Net Zero has been newly created in order for each subsidiary to discover prior technologies. An industrial-academic expert will also deliver a lecture on “Policy on Technological Innovation in Future Energy” to share insights related to the transition of the energy paradigm.

An SK Innovation official said, “The SK Innovation Global Forum is establishing itself as a platform where SK Innovation and global key talents share their insights and visions for new growth.” “We will continue to expand our technological capabilities and human resource networking to enhance the ability to execute SK Innovation’s Financial Story, the ‘Carbon to Green’ strategy.”
