LG awarded for sustained excellence

USA: LG Electronics has been recognised by the US EPA with the 2018 Energy Star Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award.

The award, for continued leadership in protecting the environment through energy efficient home appliances and consumer electronics products, follows LG’s first Energy Star Partner of the Year in 2012.

Established more than 25 years ago, the Energy Star is the US-government-backed symbol for energy efficiency. It is designed to provide simple, credible, and unbiased information to consumers and businesses.

Proud of the company’s long-standing partnership with Energy Star, William Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics North America, said: “LG is helping American consumers experience ‘Innovation for a Better Life’ by creating products that deliver energy savings to help save money and the planet without sacrificing performance or style.”

EPA assistant administrator William Wehrum applauded LG for its accomplishments. “By sustaining its Energy Star commitment, LG continues to lead the way for others, proving that when you save energy financial value accrues across the board. LG is part of a distinguished group that has made a long-term commitment to improving public health and protecting the environment by eliminating energy waste and associated pollution,” he said.

According to the EPA, LG is being recognised for “its unwavering commitment to energy efficiency and product leadership across many categories”.

Amongst LG’s recognised accomplishments is the company’s commitment to the growth in the number of Energy Star certified models by 73% in HVAC systems and 23% in refrigerators, and its contributions to room air conditioner variable-speed compressor specification development.
