SEOUL, Apr. 1 (Korea Bizwire) — SK Energy Co. said it will fund the replacement aged oil tank trucks to tackle fine dust as well as promote coexistence with partners.
The energy giant doubled the budget (US$3.7 million) for replacing oil tank trucks operated by partner companies at a low interest rate of 2 percent.
For some time, SK Energy has been subsidizing the replacement of tanker trucks each year by providing a certain level of funding disbursed at a low interest rate.
This year, the company has doubled that budget and cut down the interest rate even more.
Also, the company provided 85,000 masks to 3,500 gas stations and 290 liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) filling stations last week for workers who are frequently exposed to fine dust.
“As an energy firm responsible for maintaining the core infrastructure of South Korea, generating eco-friendly social values is crucial,” said Cho Kyung-mok, CEO and President of SK Energy.
