Lg sustainability was awarded by the U.S. EPA


Lg Electronics USA received the Champion Award by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It is a special recognition for demonstrating significant environmental, social and economic outcomes that go above and beyond the requirements of the EPA’s Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Electronics Challenge. The company received the Product Champion Award for Lg Oled TVs, which are designed to reduce environmental impact and to be easier to disassemble and recycle. Moreover, Lg obtained the EPA’s Silver Tier Award in recognition of LG’s significant contribu-tions to the EPA’s SMM Electronics Challenge goals by collecting a significant amount of used electronics for reuse and recycle, sending 100 percent of used electronics to certified third-party recyclers, and publicly sharing detailed information about its electronic management practices.
«Innovative industry leaders like Lg – said EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt – finding new, sustainable methods to reduce electronic waste are paving the way for the future of manufacturing. Through their efforts, our SMM Electronics Challenge exemplifies the ability to promote economic growth while protecting human health and the environment.»
