Responsible Sourcing Policy

The issue of child labor in the cobalt supply chain is not something that can be solved by LG Chem alone. Therefore, LG Chem participates in international initiatives and collaborates with other companies in the supply chain to build consensus and partnership.In particular, the company has applied a verification system for the cobalt supply chain that utilizes the block chain technology through collaboration with global companies such as electric vehicle manufacturers, IT companies, raw material suppliers and international verification institutions. Through these efforts, the company intends to prevent the use of minerals that have the possibility of human rights abuses, such as child labor, in the cobalt production process.
