Organization in Charge: Internal Control Department

In 2011 POSCO A&C set up the Internal Control Department as an organization in charge of ethical management for ethical standard to
take root as a corporate culture as quickly as possible.
The main duties of the office are to supervise the execution of ethical management including training/education, PR and counseling/con-
sulting, and operation of ethical practice programs and evaluate the implementation level, including the establishment and implementa-
tion of the relevant systems.

Ethical Helper System

POSCO A&C newly appointed ethical helpers by department and office in 2012; they supervise ethical practice activities including the
review and improvement of ethical risks of the department concerned.
An ethical helper assists the department head, operates an autonomous practice program for corporate ethics, and carries out and
supports ethical counseling, dissemination of the relevant information and notices, and training/education.
The Internal Control Department devises corporate ethical training/education and workshops each year targeting ethical helpers and
strives for the enhancement of ethical practice mindset and role activation.

Autonomous Corporate Ethics Practice Program Emphasizing Autonomy
and Responsibility by Department

As employees’ recognition of ethical practice spreads and gets established, and since there is a need for the department head to
assume responsibility for carrying out one-notch-higher ethical practice activities autonomously, we have been operating the
Autonomous Corporate Ethical Practice Program since 2011. The program is carried out in three stages annually, and all department
staff members participate in the program under the leadership of the department head. The program involves discovering depart-
ment-peculiar risks and improving selected projects.
