Water Management

LG Electronics aims to reduce 20% of (intensity) water use by 2020 compared to the base year 2007

and keeps close track of the amount of water it uses and reuses at its production sites in Korea and overseas.

Water Use

In 2015, the total volume of water used at our production sites in Korea and overseas (including some R&D facilities in Korea) amounted to approximately 8.66 million tons, and 0.75 million tons of the water was reused. As part of our efforts to carefully monitor and manage the amount of water use and wastewater discharged, we began to build a corporate-level water inventory with a plan to complete the process by 2016. Based on the inventory, we intend to develop upgraded water resource management plans and responses, such as managing water sources, performing intensity target analysis, improving water quality, calculating the local unit price for water resource, and responding to disruptions in the water supply.
