▪︎ Materiality Issues

KISCO conducted a materiality analysis to identify issues necessary for sustainable management and reflect them in the management strategy. We analyzed industry trends, international sustainable management standards, domestic ESG indicators, and constructed a significant issue pool through media research, benchmarking with similar industries, and reviewing internal conditions. We then selected significant issues by gathering opinions from management and other internal stakeholders.
