HWM (Malaysia) - - REPORT -

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.”
