LOTTE Chemical considers diversity and complementarity of competence when appointing independent directors, regardless of gender, ethnicity, and nationality.

A director’s term is valid from the date of appointment (inauguration) until the closing of the regular stockholders’ meeting for the final accounting period within two years.

LOTTE Chemical maintains liability insurance for directors (liability limit: KRW20 billion) to insure against damage claims and legal defense cost.
