Green Product Strategy
LG Electronics has set a strategy to develop products that reduce environmental impacts throughout the life cycle of the products. It is classified into three categories: human, energy, and resources.

To reduce the environmental impact on human, LG Electronics has been working to improve home environment for its consumers by replacing hazardous substances, reducing noises from home appliances and adding anti-allergy and anti-bacterial features.
LG Electronics adds anti-bacterial features to its products including washing machines, air-conditioners and vacuum cleaners to improve home environment for its customers and is constantly working to reduce noise and vibration produced by products. Also, LGE obtains various labels related with allergy to verify our consideration of improving home environment.
LG Electronics’ energy strategy focuses on two key areas: energy efficiency enhancement and reduce greenhouse gas emissions during using and manufacturing.
Energy Efficiency Enhancement
LG Electronics established a Technology Road Map (TRM) and sets goals for each of its product categories.
All of the LGE’s products are fully comply with international energy regulations including ErP(Energy-related products).
LGE established internal strategies and targets concerning energy issues to reduce on mode and standby mode power consumption.
Reduce CO2 Emissions
LG Electronics helps its customers to lead low carbon lifestyles by measuring the carbon footprint of a product (the total amount of carbon emissions associated with the product’s life cycle) and informing consumers how much GHG is emitted when they use a particular product. Additionally, LGE is making efforts to reduce GHG emissions associated with its business operations.

LG Electronics is trying to improve resource efficiency by reducing the use of resources and improving recyclability of products. From the development phase, LG Electronics works to enhance material quality and product structure, and strives to improve product performance while reducing the size and weight based on collaboration with recyclers. To improve recyclability, LGE has an internal process in place to manufacture products.
LG Electronics has developed slim design products to reduce the use of resources as well as for ease of use. LGE manages energy and water usage in connection with LGE’s waste elimination activities to use resources effectively during manufacturing process.
LG Electronics has an internal process in place to manufacture products while taking environmental issues such as product decomposition and recyclability into consideration from the product development stage and uses evaluation and support toils such as recycling checklists.
