LG Electronics established the following strategic directions for climate change response: “Reduction of GHG emissions associated with production,” “reduction of GHG emissions associated with product use,” “reduction of GHG emissions across the value chain,” and “commitment to social responsibility based on promotion of low-carbon culture,” and make a wide range of efforts to deliver results.
LG Electronics has set a target to reduce 150,000 tons of GHG emissions associated with production in 2020 from the base year 2008 (10% reduction) through GHG reduction efforts, including production process innovation, facility/operation efficiency improvement, and renewable energy use. Based on the target, we expect to reduce a total of approximately 1 million tons (cumulative) of GHG emissions from 2009 to 2020.
LG Electronics plans to contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions associated with product use by developing and introducing highly energy efficient products. We have established a target to reduce 30 million tons of GHG emissions from BAU by 2020. LG Electronics is estimated to contribute to a total reduction of about 200 million tons (cumulative) of GHG emissions associated with product use from 2009 to 2020.
