SK hynix Policy
SK hynix continues to make an effort to manufacture environment-friendly products for environmental conservation, conforming to environmental egulation, and develops the product for mass production With determination to minimize the hazardous effects that may occur to nature and man during the product's life cycle - from production to abolition.
SK hynix Eco-Friendly Product Policy
The low-energy and low-carbon product design reducing the environmental stress is adopted from the beginning of the product development, and only those raw materials free from hazardous substances are used. Currently products capable of responding to hazardous substance regulation such as RoHS and REACH are being manufactured in large quantities. Also efforts are being made to cope with the additional substances to be regulated by investing into the current status of using such substances and by developing a substitute. And an environmental stress evaluation system covering the whole product life cycle of production, use and abolition was established to develop and manufacture the products in large quantities; this system is intended for manufacturing an environment-friendly product through the product analysis and reflecting lits results to the manufacturing process.
SK hynix will continue to endeavor to become a leading company playing the part in conserving the environment for the next generation.
