Kia ESG Strategy

"Kia has made sustainable ESG management its top priority for 2021. We have established a management strategy called ‘Plan S‘ and declared our firm will to transition to green, customer-centered, and future-oriented new businesses. In 2023, we set up a new ESG management system to further promote sustainability, which has been a consistent focus throughout our corporate vision, management system, and brand strategy. The new system defines Kia's sustainable direction and value.

Our new ESG vision, ‘Sustainable Movement for an Inspiring Future,’ encapsulates the goals and objectives of our ESG strategy system. This signifies that Kia, which is transforming into a sustainable mobility solution provider, will continue to advance toward a future that inspires together with various stakeholders, such as customers, shareholders, suppliers, local communities, and the natural environment. Through ‘sustainable movement,’ we aspire not only to minimize negative impacts that may arise from corporate activities, but also to enhance inspiration, that is, positive impacts.
