LG is excited to incorporate ForestNation Tree Kits as part of the company’s annual “Global Volunteer Day” event held in honor of World Environment Day. LG employees from across the world give back to their communities through local clean-up events in parks or beaches, donation drives, and other charitable work.
LG Electronics has three pillars in its sustainability platform:
Achieve a zero carbon, circular economy through reduction of CO2 emissions, development of energy efficient products, removal of harmful environmental effects of products, and minimization of waste from all stages of production and product use. LG has earned several eco-labels and certifications for its products, including ENERGY STAR, GREENGUARD Gold, EPEAT, among others. The company is also on track to reduce emissions from its US operations by 50% by 2020, compared to 2008, and continually aims to reduce its environmental impact through stewardship programs.
Promote an intelligent lifestyle by expanding “green” business and launching innovative products that offer a healthy lifestyle, while creating meaningful connections between people and things. This is evident through LG’s cutting-edge solar panels, energy storage systems, electric vehicle components, and other award-winning “smart” products.
Create a better society by developing a sustainable business ecosystem throughout the supply chain, creating a safer workplace and promoting work and life balance while also improving work efficiency, encouraging employees to participate in volunteer activities, and contributing more to society through the company’s products and services. LG continues to manage social and environmental risks in its operations and supply chain, in addition to supporting local communities through employee volunteering and philanthropy. The company is making great strides in its US-wide social contribution program to equip youth with skills for sustainable happiness, having reached 1.8 out of the 5.5 million teens it aims to reach by 2021.
