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.
LG Electronics keep close track of the amount of water use and reuse as well as the amount of wastewater discharged at our production and R&D locations in Korea and overseas. 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 in 2015. 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. We have developed a Water Risk Assessment (WRA) Tool, that included water inventory, to monitor the water use at each production site, to regularly analyze and manage water risks at Korea and overseas. The WRA Tool is used to identify water-saving items, establish countermeasures against water quality deterioration, and establish mid- and long-term strategies related to water. LG Electronics participated the CDP Korea Water Disclosure Program since 2016.
Global Water Use (unit : K ton)
As for the data on water supply, Scope 2 (indirect water use) was excluded from this table.
