Stakeholder Consultation is establishing itself as one of the most valuable communication channel for our stakeholder engagement.
In order to build consensus between LG Electronics and its stakeholders and incorporate their diverse opinions into its sustainability management, we started a semiannual Stakeholder Consultation comprised of experts in a variety of fields from 2010.
In 2010, we launched Stakeholder Consultation to create an opportunity to take stock of our initiatives and performance in CSR and to incorporate the valuable opinions of stakeholders into our sustainability management. Stakeholder Consultation has been held twice a year, facilitating discussions on all aspects of CSR that are relevant to our business such as the environment, product safety, and accessibility for persons with disabilities. Various CSR topics from government agencies, academia, NGOs, and international organizations have been invited to the consultations to provide their opinions and insights.
LG Electronics will continue to expand the scope of stakeholder engagement to overseas, particularly through Stakeholder Consultation. We will explore ways in which we can contribute towards achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as well as the sustainable development of the global community with the program. As part of our effort to expand the scope of stakeholder engagement, we will reach out to diverse stakeholder groups, including consumers, for their participation in new engagement formats, such as discussions and open talks on sustainability issues.
