LG OLED Evo TVs Achieve Eco-Friendly Certification for Fourth Year in a Row

5:51:00 PM

LG Electronics (LG) is once again in the spotlight for its unwavering dedication to sustainability and eco-friendly practices. The latest LG 2024 OLED evo TVs have been recognized with Reducing CO2 and Measured CO2 certifications from the Carbon Trust and Environmentally Evaluated Mark from Société Générale de Surveillance SA (SGS), marking the fourth consecutive year of recognition for LG's environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives. Additionally, LG’s newest OLED TVs have earned their second successive Recycled Content certification, underscoring the company's commitment to environmental responsibility.

The Carbon Trust, an organization working towards a future of zero carbon emissions, evaluates the environmental impact of products throughout their entire life cycle. SGS certification focuses on resource efficiency and the presence of hazardous substances, while Intertek measures the percentage of recycled materials used. These certifications emphasize responsible consumption practices across industries and contribute to global sustainability efforts.

One notable aspect of LG OLED TVs is their self-lit nature, which stands out in sustainability evaluations. Unlike LCD TVs, LG OLED TVs do not require a backlight, leading to a simpler structure and fewer components. For example, LG’s 65-inch OLED evo, constructed with ultra-light composite fiber, uses only 40 percent of the plastic typically found in an LCD TV of the same size and weighs 20 percent less.


Considering the expected sales of LG OLED TVs this year, the total plastic usage from 2022 to 2024 is projected to be 45,000 tons lower than that of LCD TVs sold during the same period. This reduction will result in a decrease in carbon emissions of approximately 234,000 tons annually, equivalent to the carbon dioxide absorbed by a 30-year-old pine forest. To put it in perspective, this reduction is about one-third of the area of Seoul or roughly 31,000 soccer fields.

Approximately 20% of the plastic used in manufacturing all LG TVs, including OLED TVs, consists of recycled plastics, amounting to around 4,000 tons of recycled waste plastic annually.

In addition to its environmental endeavors, LG has received accolades from both domestic and international organizations for its ESG initiatives. In 2023, LG was listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for the twelfth consecutive year, ranking in the top ten percent of the largest 2,500 global companies based on long-term economic, environmental, social, and governance practices. Notably, LG is the sole South Korean company in the Leisure Equipment & Products and Consumer Electronics industry category to achieve this recognition.

Furthermore, LG has consistently received the highest 'Comprehensive A grade' from the ESG Evaluation and Rating Announcement of Korea ESG Standards Institute (KCGS) for three years, and it earned its fourth consecutive 'A' rating from the Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) ESG Rating last year.

Baik Seon-pill, leader of LG Home Entertainment Company’s Product Planning Division, emphasized, “LG OLED TVs not only lead the market as the ultimate choice for premium viewing experiences but also set the bar for ESG standards. LG remains dedicated to ongoing efforts to create a better planet for all.”

LG and Netflix Joins Together to Bring A Bigger & Better Christmas

12:33:00 AM

Bigger and better Christmas is LGs main goal for the holidays and part of that is by bringing in various initiative like the brand's mission of always giving back to the community. LG and Netflix came up with an event that was launched just recently in One Canvas Events Place in Pasong Tamo, Makati. LG Philippines outlined their various initiatives for the holiday season.

The event started off with LGEPH Product Marketing Manager Angelica Dumlao discussing the Evolution of Picture Quality and how LG has taken great strides in pushing for technological innovation. “We can see the advancement and the evolutionary journey of how TV resolution and picture quality have improved in the last 20 years. The evolution from analog to digital television technology was a slow process, and it wasn’t even until the mid-1990s that HDTV broadcasting began. At that time, most HDTVs were plasma TVs, which were expensive, so HDTV adoption was slow. By the mid-2000s however, affordable 40-inch LCDs started to be sold. By the end of the decade, LCDs were outselling traditional (CRT) TVs as well as plasma TVs. Post HDTVs, companies started looking for newer technologies that could be offered to consumers. The last few years saw the arrival of curved screens, high dynamic range (HDR), smart TVs, OLED TVs, and 4K. Now with the hyper realistic detail and picture quality of 8K available to consumers.” She goes on to add “For us in LG, Life’s about more than having the latest technology. It’s about the experiences technology creates. We are a pacesetter in the industry and we will continue to deliver consumer electronics that let you embrace life and prepare you for its greatest moments.”

Pushing forward with the holiday theme, the first gift that LG has for the community comes in the form of its partnership with Netflix. During the event, Netflix unveiled the streaming service’s holiday film headliner, Klaus. The trailer for the destined Christmas classic, together with its behind the scenes footage, were all screened with the use of LG’s award-winning OLED TVs, the purchase of which comes with an accompanying gift of 6 months of Netflix.

Klaus, the headliner for Netflix’s holiday lineup, is an entirely 2D animated movie, a Netflix first, that harkens to the old Christmas shows we’ve come to know and love. Legendary actor J. K. Simmons provides the voice for the titular Klaus, a reclusive carpenter whom Jesper discovers living alone in a cabin, where he makes his own handmade toys. Like the movies of yore, Netflix hopes that Klaus becomes a Christmas tradition that’s destined to be replayed every holiday season for the years to come. LG also invited the Animation Council of the Philippines, Inc. (ACPI) to share their thoughts on the use of 2D animation in Klaus, how LG OLED TVs are the best platform to view it on, as well as to discuss the state of the local animation industry as a whole.

As an early Christmas present for the organization, LG Philippines donated LG TV. Inkwun Heo, LG Philippines’ Managing Director, recognized the importance of the ACPI’s role in the local industry and how their influence shapes the evolution of picture quality. “With LG, we guarantee an unparalleled, memorable cinematic viewing experience. Through non-stop innovation, LG has been able to offer the best that technology has to offer, be it through our NanoCell or OLED TVs, or with the use of our ThinQ Artificial Intelligence. We want content creators such as ACP to have access to this technology so that they can pay it forward and share it with the community through their art.

Marlyn Montano, Vice President of the ACPI, graciously accepted the TV donation from LG. “Working in the animation industry, innovations in technology are important to us. To be able to compete with other animators from around the world, we need to be at the top. LG’s AI-optimized picture quality that boasts leading clarity, sharpness, detail and brightness is as advanced as you can get. This really helps us in harnessing the best of our abilities.”

Another gift that LG has for the community during the holidays is the #ShareTheGoodLifewithLG campaign. As a way of giving back to the community, LG Philippines has dedicated a portion of each sale of an LG product to go towards furnishing the children of Shelter of Hope. More than that, LG has committed to donate home entertainment and home appliances worth more than Php 1Million. Shelter of Hope is currently building a new home for their resident children who are cancer patients and these gifts will provide much needed Christmas cheer. During the event, LG, Netflix, and the members of the media, in the spirit of Klaus, also brought gifts and toys to give to the children of Shelter of Hope. Just like what Klaus says, “A true selfless act, always sparks another.”

Towards the end of the event, long-time LG brand ambassador James Deakin enumerated the eight reasons why one should buy the award-winning OLED TVs, either as a holiday gift or even for oneself. Firstly, it’s the World's Best Selling OLED TV Brand for 6 consecutive years. Global sales and shipments prove that LG is, once again, the world’s best-selling brand for OLED TVs.
