As the Paris Agreement was adopted in December 2015 and nations set targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, environmental awareness has continued to increase.
Under the "MOL Group Environmental Policy Statement," the MOL Group established the "MOL Group Environmental Vision 2030" as a group-wide environmental management policy. It expresses the MOL Group's viewpoint on addressing environmental issues in the new management plan.
