Eco-Design test 111

Eco-design refers to the reduction of environmental impacts during the course of design, development, production, and distribution of a product.

Eco-Design

testsetset

Eco-design refers to the integration of environmental concerns into product design, with the aim of reducing the environmental impact of a product from start to finish. This includes rigorous assessment at every stage of development, including its use and disposal, price, quality, and raw materials. Further, a Life Cycle Assessment [LCA] is performed at the end of each stage, to evaluate the product's environmental impact. Always conducted by an outside expert in the pertinent field, LCAs secure each product's environmental suitability and foster designs that further enhance its quality and functionality.

Eco-Design Application

By applying the eco-design concept to all of its products, hazardous substances are banished and-by reducing energy consumption and developing recyclable eco-products-natural resources are preserved.

  1. Improving efficiency when using resources LG not only reduces the weight and volume of its products, but also makes more efficient use of resources by using natural and/or recyclable materials.
  2. Reducing the use of hazardous materials LG bans any use of the six hazardous substances (lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent, chromium, and PBB/PBDE), employs halogen-free flame retardants, and refrains from using any other substances that could cause harm to the human body.
  3. Improving energy efficiency LG Electronics complies with international efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by reducing power consumption and the use of standby electricity.
  4. Improving recyclability LG Electronics chooses materials that can be easily recycled. During the production and planning stages, we focus on making sure that a given product can be easily broken down. Later, overall recyclability is further improved by reducing its number of individual parts.
