LG Beats Emissions Goal

By Greg Tarr On Apr 22 2014 - 9:07am




Seoul, South Korea ― LG Electronics said Monday that it cut emissions from the use of its products by 38 million tons in 2013.

The achievement exceeded the company’s target to reduce emissions from the use of LG products by 30 million tons in a year, a target that LG had previously projected would not be reached until 2020.

LG said it has now upped the ante and will seek to cut emissions associated with product use by 60 million tons a year in 2020 ― an accumulated reduction of approximately 420 million tons between 2008 and 2020.
