To achieve this goal, we plan to introduce hydrogen combustion machinerysuch as hydrogen boilers/burners and adopt green LNG that utilizes carbon reduction or carboncapture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technology.20

04. Achievingcarbon neutrality inour factoriesTogether with our major affiliates—Kia, Hyundai Mobis, Hyundai Wia, and Hyundai Transys—we will reduce carbon emissions by transitioning 100% to renewable energy globally.Our goal is set on 2045, five years earlier than the schedule set by the RE100 initiative.To transition our overseas factories 100% to renewable energy, we will first start with ourCzech Republic plant where renewable energy is easily accessible. We’ll then be movingon to factories in other countries such as India and the US by taking into consideration the4 2.RE100 initiative anddetailed execution planenvironment surrounding the supply/demand of renewable energy and government policies/regulations of each country. The gradual transition will be 60% complete (compared to theRE100 recommendation) by 2030 and 90% complete by 2040. We will carefully consider thecircumstances of each plant to come up with the best solutions including installing solar panelson the roofs of our factories, purchasing renewable energy certificates, and signing powerpurchase agreements (PPA) with external renewable energy companies.Starting with our plant in the Czech Republic, Hyundai Motor Company plans to transition 100%to renewable energies by obtaining guarantee of origin (GO) certificates in 2022. Starting in2035, we’re also planning to install solar panels on the roofs of our factories and parking lots.Our India plant is already purchasing approx. 85% of its power (wind power 20%, solar power8%, waste incineration cogeneration 56%1) from external power companies through PPA.We are also installing 10MW solar panels on our roofs, which will be ready by 2021. In addition,we have already constructed 3.2MW solar panels at our plant in Indonesia (built in 2021).These panels have been in operation since April 2021.In Korea, we have made joint investments with large power companies and leased the roofsof our factories for solar panels. These panels supply electricity to external grids. The 10MWsolar panels installed in 2013 at our Asan plant are producing 13,000Mwh electricity per year.In 2021, we constructed a 9MW solar energy facility at the parking lot of our Ulsan plant.We are also conducting a demonstration project that combines solar power with energy storagesystems (ESS) made from reused waste batteries.1) Waste incineration cogeneration will gradually be replaced by renewable energy in the future.21
