2021 SK Innovation CEO 新年贺词:通过实施 Financial Story, 重生为 New SK Innovation
2021.01.04
  各位SK Innovation关联公司成员! 送别忙碌的2020年,即将迎来崭新的2021年辛丑年.衷心祝愿我们全体成员新的一年幸福安康. 回顾过去的一年,由于史无前例的全球疫情,我们共同经历了许多本来是“理所应当的日常生活”却变成了遥不可及的事情.公司也由于全球经济衰退和市场情况恶化,财务业绩下滑到历史最低点,面临从未经历过的危机.在整整一年都持续危机经营体制的情况下,真心感谢在各自的岗位上尽心尽责的各位成员. 目前我们面临的情况虽然有新冠疫情引发的暂时性影响,但与此相比,更应该理解为是以“环境保护”为中心发生的巨大变化趋势.全世界对企业的ESG经营要求日益高涨,特别是从根本上应对环境问题(Green)的呼声越来越高.主要国家相继发布了“2050年碳中和”、“禁止销售燃油车”等强有力并具有实效性的政策.国际投资机构也通过Climate Action 100+, RE100等多种倡议组织,要求企业立即进行改革,对于未能充分满足要求的企业则采取撤回投资等实质性措施.   这种变化尤其对于以Carbon Biz为中心的企业来说,是一种日益逼近的生存威胁.去年8月,一度曾占据全球市值总额首位的埃克森美孚因企业价值持续下降,92年来首次被逐出道琼斯指数.   SK Innovation要想克服挑战,谋求可持续发展,必须进行全面的变革.现在已经刻不容缓. 过去的一年是新的十年征程的起点,SK Innovation为了可持续的生存和发展,树立了蕴含着创新意愿的Financial Story.   未来SK Innovation将以Green为中心,从企业形象(Identity)、投资组合(Portfolio)、资产结构方面进行全方位、根本性的革新,力争成为实现Green Balance 2030的“绿色能源与材料企业(Green Energy & Materials Co.)”.2021年是Financial Story实施的元年.我们要就我们的Financial Story与利益相关者进行积极沟通,通过实践用成果去证明,使企业价值得到跨时代的飞跃和提升. 关于SK Innovation Financial Story的实施,我想对各位成员提出三点嘱托.   第一,加快以Green为中心的未来发展.   作为SK Innovation绿色发展(Green Growth)的主力,电池与材料事业的成长价值开始得到市场的认可.过去的一年,在新冠疫情的冲击下,很多石油、化学企业的企业价值急剧下降,但SK Innovation得益于电池和材料事业,很好地捍卫了企业价值,且下半年以后市值一直处于上升趋势.   今后我们也将继续通过果断的投资,进一步强化技术竞争力,扩大全球生产基地,快速成为高企业价值的国际顶尖企业(Global Top-tier Player).   特别是电池事业将不仅局限于传统的电池制造,通过向BaaS(Battery-as-a-Service)事业扩张,获取新的价值.此外,集合了公司和集团内外部资源和力量的绿色Energy Solution & TTS(Total Transportation Service)也将作为新的未来事业重点推进. 今后我们也将继续通过果断的投资,进一步强化技术竞争力,扩大全球生产基地,快速成为高企业价值的国际顶尖企业(Global Top-tier Player).   ...
