Samsung Construction Arm to Ditch Coal After 2 More Projects | Bloomberg

Samsung C&T said its trading arm will also gradually exit from all coal-related businesses once its existing contracts terminate, while seeking to expand its business into LNG and renewables. The company will completely withdraw from the Gangneung project after selling all of its 29% stake, which it can do it three years after commercial operations begin in end-2023.

“It is quite disappointing that the company’s not giving up on its ongoing projects, including Vung Ang 2,” Lee Jieon, a climate and energy coordinator at Korea Federation of Environmental Movements, said by phone. “Still, it is worth noting that the pledge came from a major construction company in South Korea, which may set an example for other non-financial firms in the country.”
