LG Electronics’ eco-friendly activities have been recognized by the Illinois, U.S.-based Underwriters Laboratory Environment.
The nation’s second-largest electronics maker received the highest-level Platinum certificate for its eco-friendliness. LG said on Tuesday its flagship smartphone LG G2 has earned the Ecologo, a widely recognized standard for handset sustainability that was developed by ULE.
The company also received the CarbonFree label from the Maryland-based nongovernmental Carbonfund.org Foundation. The label certifies products that have demonstrated carbon emissions reduction throughout all stages of manufacturing, shipment, use and waste.
“LG Electronics’ efforts to deal with environmental issues have verified the fact that what is good for the environment is good for the business,” said Carbonfund’s president Eric Carlson.
“With the eco-friendly mark, it will get momentum in the global market in addition to the recent evaluation of G2 as the best product,” LG Electronics’ mobile communications division head Park Jong-seok said.
