The Group is now planning to hire about 7,000 people annually, which is the largest number in the history of Hanwha.

Through these medium and long-term plans for investment and recruitment, the Group expects that 2018’s 70 trillion won in revenue would reach 100 trillion won in 2023.

4. [Hanwha Energy] Held a Groundbreaking Ceremony of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Power Plant in Daesan

Interest in clean energy is increasing along with concerns about climate change. Hanwha Energy held a groundbreaking ceremony for a mega power plant to produce a byproduct-hydrogen fuel cell for the first time in the world. This power plant is an eco-friendly facility of the future that converts chemical energy to electric energy when hydrogen reacts with oxygen.

Hydrogen fuel cell power generation is a method that generates electricity by extracting hydrogen, a byproduct of chemical processes from the petrochemical complex, and creating an electrochemical reaction with oxygen. This is the first mega fuel cell power generation plant that uses byproduct hydrogen in Korea as well as in the world. Hydrogen fuel cell power generation does not create nitrogen oxide(NOx), sulfur oxides(SOx), or fine dust when it generates electricity. It is an eco-friendly power generation facility because it filters ultrafine dust through micro-filters.

With this, Hanwha Energy can strengthen their position as a comprehensive energy provider by adding a hydrogen fuel cell power generation business to their existing business portfolio of energy and solar power generation.

5. [Hanwha Group] Held the final round of Hanwha Science Challenge 2018

The final round of the Science Challenge 2018, a challenge for science-gifted students to save the world, was held from August 21st to 23rd at Hanwha HRD Center.

This year was the eighth Science Challenge and each year the contest has used the same theme, “Saving the Earth”. The event requires outstanding creative ideas that can solve four different global issues. These four issues deal with how the earth and humanity can coexist. Since this challenge is the largest science competition in Korea for students gifted in science, a total of 1,248 students from 624 teams signed up. This year’s event set the record for attracting the largest number of participants.

The Group is providing support for the previous winners of the competition and opportunities to communicate with each other so that they can take on new challenges for their dreams with pride as Science Challenge winners. Until we have a Nobel Prize winner from among Hanwha Science Challenge winners, we continue cheer for all those science-gifted kids who are striving for their dreams for the future.

1. [Hanwha Group] Presented an Exemplary Case for UN Sustainable Development

The Hanwha Solar Forest, the Hanwha Group’s anti-desertification project for growing eco-friendly forests was introduced at the UN headquarters in New York on July 17th. The project was presented as an exemplary case of sustainable development through corporate partnership. UN-affiliated groups and NGOs that have been emphasizing the topic of sustainable development also attended the event.

Since 2011, Hanwha has been carrying out the Hanwha Solar Forest campaign through a sponsorship with a social enterprise, Tree Planet, to grow forests. Through this campaign, they have planted 490,000 trees on 1,330,000 square meters of land, or about 180 soccer fields, in Korea, China, and Mongolia.

While growing forests in the desert in Ningxia, China, the Group pruned young trees by donating a 80kw solar power generating facility. It was the first time in the world that solar was used for anti-desertification. The idea came from the paradox that they had to burn fossil fuel to prune young trees. The case was then introduced at a conference of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD). It was another reason to consider Hanwha to the number one global solar energy company.

The Hanwha Solar Forest campaign has planted six forests in China, Mongolia, and Korea. It is going to plant a forest for preventing fine dust in Incheon, Korea later this year. As the number one solar company in the world, the Group will continue to lead in solving growing climate change and environmental problems as they fulfill their social responsibilities.

2. [Hanwha Corporation] Ranked 244th on Fortune Global 500

Fortune, the world’s oldest and most renowned economics magazine, selects the top 500 global companies every year. And this ranking is used by many people in the world to estimate a corporation’s worth. Since placing 321st in 2011, Hanwha has continued its climb and reached the 244th place this year. We are pleased to announce that this is two steps up from last year.

Hanwha Corporation’s continuous growth was credited to an upgraded business structure and other strategic investments to strengthen its competitiveness with the global standard since 2014. Through a strategic business restructuring, the company selected defense, chemical, precision machinery, and solar as core businesses. After the financial crisis in late 2014, Hanwha corporation was able to strengthen its defense and chemical business portfolios thanks to the success of the largest voluntary “big deals” between Hanwha and other companies.

As Hanwha Corporation establishes its position in the global market, the company will continue to innovate in order to be evaluated as a “leading global company”. Since the company’s status is improving as it grows, we look forward to seeing Hanwha Corporation grow even more as it tries to build the future the world expects.

These new campaigns are supposed to deliver the message that Hanwha is a company that fulfills its social responsibilities and is an important supporter of the world and society.

These commercial campaigns follow the commercial series presented during the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, which delivered a message that everyone who runs towards their dreams is precious. These new campaigns are strengthening the Group’s interests in new renewable energy and creating jobs for young people.

Through the Happy Sunshine campaign, which is about sharing solar energy with our society, and Dream Plus campaign, which is about supporting young people’s dreams and their strong spirits, the Group wanted to present Hanwha’s image as a company that works with our society to make the world a better place to live.

We cheer for young people’s flame-like lives and offer support for our society’s sustainable growth. And we hope that all Hanwha members will take interest in Hanwha’s new commercial campaigns.

These supporting activities were well received by the partner companies because the programs provided actual help improving their business operations, an aspect that can be easily overlooked by small companies. We look forward to seeing more win-win growth partnerships and job creations through more diverse methods.

The Group is planning to provide continuous support to the WITH conference so that it doesn’t remain as only a one-time event, but it becomes an event that contributes greatly to changing the organizational culture from a long-term stand point. We hope that everyone from the working level to the top management takes active role in the movement to make Hanwha a great company to work for.

5. [Hanwha Defense Affiliates] Invited foreign military attachés to visit Hanwha facilities

The Ministry of Defense is carrying out a national security inspection for foreign military attachés. They visited military security sites and defense industry facilities. On May 15th, foreign military attachés and their families visited the Hanwha Land Defense and Hanwha Defense Changwon Plant to witness the Korean defense industry in action.

With a request from the Ministry of Defense, 28 foreign military attachés and their family members, representing 26 countries including the U.S., Germany, and Philippines, were invited. Shin Hyun-woo, CEO of Hanwha Aerospace gave a welcoming speech. His speech was followed by an introduction of products, a factory tour, and product demonstrations.

The foreign military attachés looked around the automated production lines of Hanwha Defense and Hanwha Land Defense. And they observed first-hand world-class defense technology, and various products. Moreover, the company prepared puzzles that were made with K9 BIHO (Self-propelled Anti-Aircraft Defense System) images and hand-made chocolates with printed images of the defense affiliates’ main products.

With this visit as momentum, we hope that Hanwha’s defense technology, which represents Korea’s defense industry, continues to expand its presence in the world.
