Founding Declaration
On February 16, 2005, the Kyoto Protocol entered into force. Since its adoption in 1992 the Rio Convention on Climate Change (UN FCCC) has been the centerpiece of global efforts for the conservation of terrestrial ecosystems. Global warming has reached a serious level. In addition to the impact of the greenhouse effect, it has been caused by human activities, and as a result (for the pan-global level) - climate change, a violation of terrestrial ecosystems, the food crisis, diseases and other problems threaten the survival of the human race.

Currently South Korea is not among the countries of Annex I of the UNFCCC, but it is assumed that it inevitably will be included by the beginning of the second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol in 2013. Thus, proceeding from the fact that Korea, a country largely dependent on carbon fuels, aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 5.2% compared to 1990's levels, it should be considered to have significant adverse impacts of businesses and people in particular, rather than the influence of the national economic processes in general. The actual situation is such that, without thinking about the threats to economic security and how to prevent them, executives of most companies in addition are not aware of the new trends of international society and changes in economic structures.

In Germany and other developed countries the conversion of energy activities has existed already for 30 years and continuous efforts aim at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. For them, the entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol was an opportunity to move to a new level of national economy. As the Kyoto Protocol was entered into force we require before it’s too late to reduce greenhouse gas emission and find a way to overcome carbon-energy economy crisis. If the global community is able to make the transition to ecological economics, it will be possible to achieve a new economic structure and stability of terrestrial ecosystems.

Now we respond to these global demands and we should put into practice the Code of Conduct below, involving civil society to assist in overcoming the national crisis and making a transition of regions and humanity as a whole to a healthy ecological economics.

1. To seek for the conservation of terrestrial ecosystems and to prevent the reckless destruction of the ecosystem.

2. To facilitate the transition to Society with ecological economics and transition to New & Renewable Energy.

3. To be on the forefront of trying to gather the wisdom with the future of the community.

4. To use the crisis as an opportunity to submit an alternative plan that could be implemented in practice.
