All in for going green
LG honored by Green Electronics Council at CES Asia 2017.
LG recently had the distinct pleasure of being honored by the Green Electronics Council for its effort in supply chain sustainability at CES Asia 2017.
The Korean electronics giant was honored with the CES Asia 2017 Catalyst Award, specifically the ‘Catalyzing Impact at Scale’ award. The award gave recognition to LG’s OLED TVs, which they say created a new premium TV category with environmental sustainability at its core.
“As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance customer value, LG strives to make products with greener features and to reduce the environmental impact of our products throughout their lifecycle,” said Lee Choonghak, Executive Vice President, LG Electronics. “LG OLED TVs, designed with the environment in mind, are prime examples of this lifecycle strategy approach.”
In addition, LG’s supply chain sustainability has also been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), with its top-level Gold Tier Award in the EPA’s Sustainable Materials Management Electronics Challenge, as well as by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries for its OLED and 4K Ultra HD TVs.
“The negative environmental and social impacts resulting from complex global supply chains are among the greatest challenges currently facing the IT industry,” Nancy Gillis, CEO of the Green Electronics Council said. “We congratulate LG for demonstrating ways to address this challenge and exhibiting sustainable supply chain leadership and innovation.”
