KT&G will maintain and develop social contribution activities systematically.
KT&G is carrying out differentiated social contribution activities.
Representative activities include the Young Entrepreneurship Support Project, the Sangsang Fund, and the Sangsang Madang.
Through these efforts, we will fulfill our responsibilities as a corporate citizen.
We are also implementing social responsibilities related to our business, such as establishing an advanced smoking culture that cares about each other. We are also organically cooperating with outside professional organizations to ensure effectiveness and sustainability.

Young Entrepreneurship Support Project

KT&G operates various social contribution projects to assist entrepreneurs who aim to realize their imaginations. ‘SangSang Start-up Camp’ is a practical start-up course that solves social issues through business, and it focuses on the Early Incubating that discovers and cultivates social innovation entrepreneurs. Moreover, we hold ‘SangSang Summit’ which is an expert forum for enhancing the interest and participation of stakeholders in social innovation. Furthermore, we opened ‘KT&G SangSang Planet’ by focusing on establishing a youth start-up support center for more active project implementation.

Sangsang Fund

KT&G Sangsang Fund, launched in March 2011, is a donation created by voluntary participation of employees. The Sangsang Fund, which has a cumulative donation amount of about 319 billion in 2020, is used to support the underprivileged and solve urgent social problems.All donations are transparently carried out through the 'Commercial Fund Fund Steering Committee', which consists of regular employees.

  • Donation petition system

    Initiated in 2013, the donation petition is an employee-led donation system in which employees discover and propose their own stories and support them through due diligence by the Social Contribution Department based on the support of more than 200 employees. By 2020, about 56 million won was donated to 57 stories.

    The Donation Market, introduced in 2015, is a participatory donation system in which executives and employees select donations from the stories recommended by Happy Bean Foundation and KT & G Welfare Foundation. By 2020, we provided approximately KRW 41 billion including medical expenses support for socially disadvantaged groups and overseas relief.

Global CSR

As a global corporate citizen, KT&G participates in solving local social problems such as education, housing, and environment in major and underdeveloped countries. We are implementing the management philosophy of "Together Company" globally with customized CSR that takes into account the uniqueness of each country, including overseas relief, global scholarship projects, cultural exchanges, and dispatch of overseas volunteer groups. In particular, we are striving to develop capacity and create jobs for local young people, such as the operation of Sangsang Univ. Indonesia.
