Safety & Environment Management

We lead the “Value Plus Carbon Minus” campaign to better respond to climate change.

Value Plus, Carbon Minus

LG Group is minimizing the environmental impact of its overall business activities, expanding its green products and strengthening its new green business, and through this, LG Group is creating positive values for customers and promoting green management that contributes to the nation and society. To actively participate in reaching LG Group's Green 2020 management goal and voluntarily implement low-carbon green growth, LG Innotek set a target of 40% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 under the slogan of "Value Plus, Carbon Minus".

GHG reduction activities

To achieve its greenhouse gas reduction goal, LG Innotek will reduce utility energy consumption, which accounts for a significant portion of its emissions, and to this end, we are expanding our review of and investment in energy-saving technologies and are continuing to improve our operating efficiency. In particular, in order to minimize GHG emissions caused by the use of existing LNG, we are accelerating the establishment of a green plant that supplies steam through the use of external incineration waste heat with zero emissions. In addition, in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the indirect sector, we are promoting video conferencing systems to maximize work efficiency and reduce costs as well as carbon reduction. We have been recognized for our commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the excellence of climate change management and we were selected as an excellent CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) company in 2015.

Development of new green products and investment in new business

Since climate change issues affect the consumption and use of products, LG Innotek is strengthening the development of new green products to increase energy efficiency, conserve resources and recycle, and replace harmful substances. In addition, we are expanding and strengthening investment in green business areas such as automotive motors/sensors, power, LED lighting, and thermoelectric elements.

Establish and strengthen the carbon partnership system

LG Innotek is making efforts to create a low-carbon purchasing base for its suppliers. Since 2009, we have been conducting training to nurture eco-friendly staffs for our primary suppliers, and since 2010, we expanded its scope to include our secondary suppliers and established a green supply chain system that covers all our suppliers. In addition, we have been providing Green SCM consulting services such as "building a greenhouse gas inventory and supporting verification" for 28 suppliers together with IBK since 2012.
