The Seoul City government and Seoul Headquarters of the KFSMB sealed an MOU for conducting energy conservation activities.
About 1,600 small and medium companies in Seoul will take the initiative in energy conservation and greenhouse gas reduction activities.
The Seoul City government and Seoul Headquarters (Executive Director: Choi Byeong-geung) of the Korea Federation of Small and Medium Business (KFSMB) sealed an MOU on September 12 for galvanizing the Eco-mileage Program and conducting energy conservation activities.
As a citizen-participatory campaign, the Seoul City authority implemented the Eco-mileage Program in 2009, and it is taken part by about 1.15 households and companies as of September this year. When its members reduce consumption of electric power, tap water, city gas and district heating, their mileage will be accumulated.
The Seoul City government expects that the number of members of the Eco-mileage Program will increase as it will be taken part by members of the KFSMB Seoul Headquarters, contributing to expanding culture of practicing eco-friendly and green life.
The KFSMB will encourage member companies in Seoul to take part in the Eco-mileage Program by providing news on small and medium companies for free, while offering chances of publicizing themselves on the Website of Eco-mileage Program to companies that took initiative in energy conservation.
Anticipating that increasing number of citizens will participate in the Eco-mileage Program thanks to growing interest in energy conservation, the Seoul City government will upgrade services for members by diversifying usages of incentives and providing additional benefits.
Director General Im Ok-gi of Climate and Environment Office at Seoul City government said, “We are assured that the MOU concluded with the KFSMB will contribute to achieving the goal of building healthy Seoul by actively saving energy by small and medium companies.”
