8 Rivers develops zero-carbon technologies such as hydrogen, carbon capture and biomass carbon removal. Some of SK Group's subsidiaries are active in energy industries and the group aims to reduce CO₂ emissions by 200 million tonnes by 2030.

To achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, many companies are investing in scaling up renewable energy production and green hydrogen to lessen reliance on fossil fuels.
