LG Electronics, a global leader and technology innovator in consumer electronics, announced its "Life's Good When it's Green" initiative, the foundation of its global sustainability program.

The worldwide Life's Good When it's Green program focuses on sustainability through Eco-Design and Eco-Products, reduction of hazardous materials, responsible electronics recycling and addressing global climate change.

"With Life's Good When it's Green, we're focusing on environmentally sustainable solutions, developing Eco-Designs and distributing Eco-Products to help create a safer, cleaner world," said Dr. Paik, LG's President and Chief Technology Officer.  "We are committed to establishing clear operational accountability and creating products that not only enhance consumers' lives, but also encourage an environmentally responsible lifestyle"' her added.

Eco-Design - LG's Eco-Design strategy works to reduce the environmental impact of a product's development, production, and circulation while improving efficiency of resources, recycling, and reducing hazardous materials.

Eco-Products - LG's Eco-Products from HDTVs to clothes washers to mobile phones use the Eco-Design. Such Eco-Products are resource- and energy-efficient, generating less waste.

Hazardous Materials - LG adheres to strict requirements regarding the management of hazardous materials in its production processes.

Take-Back & Recycling - LG Electronics has established several take-back programs and recycling facilities, allowing consumers to return end-of-life products. Products are recycled in a responsible manner.

Climate Change - LG will announce a set of global green policies called "Life's Green 2020" at CES. To address global climate change, LG is pledging to work to reduce greenhouse gases emitted both in the production process and over the lifetime of its products.

In manufacturing, LG's goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 150 kilotons per year by 2020.

In products, LG intends to reduce greenhouse gasses emitted over the lifetime of its products by 30 megatons by 2020.

Eco-Supply Chain - This program requires that LG's vendors also comply with national and international regulations. LG will work to require its supply chain vendors to reduce/eliminate use of hazardous materials to help reduce the impact to the environment.
