[Sponsored Report] Kogas heats hearts, homes with project

The Korea Gas Corporation (Kogas) goes for what it knows best when it comes to corporate social responsibility.

As a company whose business revolves around managing a major energy source, Kogas cooperates with the Korea National Council on Social Welfare to provide homes of the underprivileged class with adequate heating systems.

The so-called Onnuri Project supports and funds diverse tasks, from providing petroleum and coal briquettes for households to doing repairs for higher energy efficiency.

Insulation is improved for homes that cannot block the cold out and furnace systems are newly installed or changed if outdated.

At the same time, the enhanced energy efficiency allows families to pay less in bills every month. Last year, households that received repairs saved 14.63 percent on energy costs.

Since 2010, the budget for the project has been expanded, with long-term plans set in order to improve living environments for many more families in the future.

In carrying out these projects, Kogas is also providing job opportunities by hiring unprivileged workers to help with the building processes.

Last year, 1.4 billion won ($1.25 million) was invested into the Onnuri Project while the economic impact totaled 2.6 billion won.
