Independence of the BoD

At KEPCO, we guarantee the independence of the BoD so that the Board can faithfully perform its role of control and balance. When it comes to the candidates for non-executive directors, we conduct a strict review to ensure that the candidates have no special relationship with the company and have no reasons for disqualification as stipulated in the Commercial Act. Furthermore, we have established regulations to make sure that non-excutive directors constitute a majority of the BoD, thus strenthening their decision-making authority.

Expertise of the BoD

We consider the expertise of our directors in the process of application review in order to ensure that they are fully qualified to serve their roles and fulfill their responsibilities. Even after their appointment, directors take part in training on a regular basis and visit electric power facilities in Korea and other countries to gain insight into our business operation. additionally, directors are regularly provided with materials on industrial trends and major management issues.

Diversity of the BoD

To maintain diversity and balance in the BoD structure, we diversify the scope of institutions that nominate candidates. We appoint directors based on their experience and knowledge in various fields including law, economy, media, academia, and labor. In particular, the Executive Nomination Committee manages a pool of female executives as part of our efforts to recruit and recommend more female candidates.
