Social Contribution Activities
OCI is implementing social contribution activities to fulfill its social responsibilities.
OCI’s Angel Campaign aims to support the socially isolated in the blind spots of welfare, and it has been continuing since 2006. The Angel Campaign deducts funds (KRW 1,004 per account) from the accounts of employees who voluntarily sign up for the movement, and together with the company’s support fund, the Angel Fund is delivered to social service agencies, underfed children and the elderly living in solitude. The movement is not limited to the funds alone; it is a lead-in to active volunteer activities such as Angel voluntary group made up of its employees.

Nepal Solar Project
Nepal Solar Project
OCI is performing social contribution activities using its major business item, solar power generation equipment, to support the dreams and hopes of children in isolated lands and to promote the awareness of green energy and environmental preservation.
While 10% of Nepal’s population lives in mountain areas, most of them do not have the benefits of technology. The solar power generation equipment from OCI will undertake the role of preserving the natural environment, contributing to the lives of people and providing opportunities for children in the mountain areas to fulfill their dreams and hopes.
