The concept of "corporate social responsibility" is emerging as one of the keywords defining today's business environment, as the emphasis on the social roles and functions of companies is increasing. Hyundai Motor Company engages in a variety of systematic and strategic Social Contribution programs every year on the basis of its Long-term Social Contribution Road Map that extends to 2012. From 2011 through 2012 when its Social Contribution activities enter the mature stage, we will seek to develop unique Social Contribution models and campaigns that will reflect its core values and help it become a respected company.
Social contribution symbol and slogan: As a slogan that summarizes the Company's entire social contribution philosophy, "Moving the World Together" expresses Hyundai Motor Company's desire to make changes for the better together with its neighbors through love and actions. "Moving" represents the desire for continuous change and development, "World" represents the hopes and dreams of the world, and "Together" represents the harmonious partnership with society. To strengthen the company's resolve to make "Moving the World Together" a reality, the slogan has been translated into 23 languages.
Hyundai's CSRs can be divided among economic, social, and environmental responsibilities. The economic responsibilities, touching the fundamental basis of any profit making organization and including the needs to create jobs and to receive investments, are fulfilled by ensuring trustworthy management. Hyundai, as an active corporate citizen, also fulfills its social responsibilities through its various CSR campaigns, projects, and programs catering to the needs of its stakeholders, including the marginalized of society at large, employees, customers, partner businesses, and local communities. The company also implements systems of environmental management in order to fulfill the environmental responsibilities it bears as a leading automaker.
