Energy and GHG Emissions

LG Electronics has set a target to reduce to 150,000 tons of production-level GHG emissions by 2020

(10% reduction), through which we expect to reduce a total of approximately one million tons (cumulative) of GHG emissions between 2009 and 2020.

Operational Energy Efficiency and GHG Emissions

LG Electronics considers climate change response as critical part of our business management. To this end, LG Electronics continuously works to optimize and minimize our energy use by improving the efficiency of our facilities and production processes. We are also expanding investments in high efficiency equipment/facilities and solar power generating systems (Korea) and increasing our purchase of renewable energy in office buildings in overseas. LG Electronics joined "Green Power Partnership" led by U.S. EPA to reduce their environmental impact by using renewable energy and "SmartWay" program reducing U.S. logistics-related emissions in supply chain.

Our Climate Change Response

LG Electronics implemented a corporate-wide low carbon green management strategy with the goal of delivering customer value by voluntarily reducing its greenhouse gas emissions. The Low-Carbon Green Management Strategy is implemented in four different areas including the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the production stage, improvement of energy efficiency in the application stage, further reduction of greenhouse gas and establishment of a management system throughout all the businesses, and fulfillment of more social responsibilities through the promotion of low-carbon culture.
LG Electronics will play a leading role in responding to climate change through continuous reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
