Organization

Since the declaration of our commitment to eco-friendly management on a global scale in 2003, we have built a system that covers all aspects of its implementation from conceptualization to practice. In every part of our operation including R&D, purchasing & logistics, production, marketing and customer service, strategies are developed and implemented in consideration of environmental sustainability. Starting from 2020, an integrated management system will be deployed at all Kia premises in Korea in order to include environmental aspects in every decision making process, fulfill its environmental responsibility, promote mutual growth, and create the value of eco-friendliness.

Material Balance in the Auto Manufacturing Process

Kia Motors strives to build an eco-friendly production process. We seek to minimize total input and reduce wastes, greenhouse gas emissions and environmental pollutants through manufacturing process innovation and system updates and recycling. We track the amounts of input, output, and outcomes over a one-year period to determine the performance level and devise additional improvement plans.
