Trade, Industry and Energy Minister Moon Sungwook (center) met with major retailers and related agencies in Seoul, on June 28, and delivered a congratulatory speech to encourage local companies’ efforts to save energy and commit to reaching net zero carbon emissions.

Local franchises of convenience stores and hypermarkets agreed to take part in the initiative to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

The government will discover and implement other effective programs with the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) and the Korea Energy Agency (KEA) to induce voluntary participation of the people in reducing carbon emissions.
