Biodiversity and Environmental Conservation

KOGAS conducts environmental impact assessment to predict and evaluate the impact of environmental changes before constructing facilities or performing operations that may affect the surrounding ecosystem and environment. In addition, KOGAS carries out post-environmental impact assessment for follow-up management and monitoring after construction and during operation, and shares the results with stakeholders.
KOGAS implements a wide range of activities to protect the environment. For example, one division takes care of one mountain, one river, one coastline, and one habitat for endangered species. Through these projects on environmental purification and endangered species habitat restoration, including at the Wolcheon Coastline and Changyeong Upo Weltand, KOGAS is cooperating as a member of the local community, and striving to comply with biodiversity policy.
