SK IE Technology加入RE100,“提前实现环保电能转型”
2021.09.14
■ 10日,加入RE100……计划于2025年,提前5年实现环保电能转型 -韩国、波兰工厂已经100%引进环保电能 -在华引进太阳能发电设备,自主提供环保电能 ■ 积极增设生产设施的同时,在2030年之前减少70%的温室气体排放量 ■ SKIET的CEO 卢载晰表示,“通过发展业务巩固行业第一的地位,同时计划在环保转型领域独占鳌头,引领市场”   本月10日,SK Innovation的子公司SK IE Technology(简称SKIET)完成加入“RE100(Renewable Electricity 100)”。   RE100是国际非营利组织“气候组织”发起的倡议,其旨在将企业使用的电能100%地转型为可再生能源。虽然是自愿参加的倡议,但随着全球范围内对环保的需求日益高涨,众多企业主动参与其中。韩国RE100委员会评估申请入会的企业是否符合加入RE100。SKIET已于去年11月向韩国RE100委员会提交加入申请书。   SKIET计划以加入RE100为契机,加快步伐实现环保电能转型。虽然加入RE100不是义务事项,但SKIET决定从今年开始在韩国忠清北道曾坪、清州等韩国所有工厂,以及即将开工的波兰西里西亚省工厂内100%引进环保电能。SKIET是韩国首家在国内外单一工厂内100%使用环保电能的企业。   除此之外,SKIET计划在中国自主供电,在工厂屋顶安装7万m2规模的太阳能发电设备。可见SKIET先于利害关系者提出要求,积极地采用环保电能。   根据上述计划,SKIET计划在2025年之前针对全球工厂使用的电能中的60%实现环保转型。若按期实现,可提前5年完成RE100要求的水平。此外,SKIET计划于2030年前在全球所有生产基地引进环保电能,通过该措施,减少企业排放的温室气体总量的70%。   SKIET自主树立环保转型目标的目的在于巩固目前国际LiBS(Lithium ion Battery Separator)市场第一的地位,并在ESG领域发展成为引领行业的领头企业。   SKIET生产的主要产品——LiBS是生产有助于减少温室气体排放的电动汽车用电池时必不可少的核心材料。欧盟委员会还将其纳入了《欧盟分类法》(EU taxonomy)。《欧盟分类法》是指有助于绿色环保、可持续的经济活动的产品等的目录,向企业、投资者、环境政策制定者等进行提供,鼓励环保活动,促进适当的投资。   SKIET去年销售的LiBS约达5亿m2, 约为生产76万辆电动汽车所需的总量。若以76万辆电动汽车取代内燃机汽车,每年温室气体排放量则可减少约94万吨。   SKIET CEO 卢载晰强调称:“将通过发展业务巩固行业第一的地位,同时计划在环保转型领域独占鳌头,引领市场。”   韩国RE100委员会委员长陈遇三表示: “衷心祝贺SKIET加入RE100,继去年SK集团的6家公司,这次SKIET在从SK Innovation独立后,时隔两年加入RE100,SK集团再次向全球市场和产业界展示了气候领导力。”   [图片]   SK IE Technology中国常州工厂
