in the 1960s, the fragility of our world has become a global topic, requiring united social action and even multinational companies to reconsider their strategies. That focus has also shifted in a more sustainable direction that puts nature conservation first, a change that can be seen in the attitude of today’s rapidly growing eco-conscious consumers.

In matters relating to conscious spending, there isn’t a more active group than Gen Z, with saying they prefer buying from brands that actively support social and environmental causes over those that do not. Society’s youngest consumers are now the ones informing the public on all things green, making this generation the leaders of real societal change.

On a governmental level, the EU introduced new Energy Labels on March 1, taking a stricter stance on products that wish to be labeled green. Such environmental labels are important because they provide insightful energy consumption and environmental data that today’s consumers expect before purchase. The new energy designation replaces the outdated system by providing manufacturers with added incentive to improve energy efficiency.

A washing machine’s spin efficiency could be crucial in determining the energy consumption of a dryer, since low spin performance increases running time and uses more energy. When it comes to noise, although the difference between 72dB and 73dB may seem small, the new rules could have an appliance demoted an entire letter grade.1

As part of its commitment to reduce its carbon footprint, LG has converted all DUAL Inverter Heat Pump™ Dryers to use only R290 refrigerant, which has a lower global warming potential (GWP) than R134a refrigerant.2 As a result, LG’s DUAL Inverter Heat Pump Dryer earned the Green Product Mark from TÜV Rheinland for meeting the requirements of pollution prevention, sustainable use of resources and climate change mitigation.3

And in an effort to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions, LG makes every effort to make products lighter, using fewer resources during the production process. LG is developing and supplying energy-efficient products that carry the Energy Star label and are certified by the European Commission for contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and helping to modify usage behavior for a greener lifestyle.

For example, the Inverter Linear Compressor™ found in LG’s refrigerators efficiently keep food fresh longer and noise levels lower compared to LG’s conventional models.4 LG’s world-class inverter technology regulates the speed and revolution of motors and compressors depending on the situation to optimize operation. The unique linear motion of the compressor enables LG refrigerators to reach target temperatures quickly while reducing friction points for heightened durability and less noise.

For LG washers with LG Inverter DirectDrive™ technology, the motor is directly connected to the drum without the use of a belt or pulley, allowing for greater durability and energy efficiency while reducing noise compared to models without DirectDrive. LG is so confident of the durability of its core technologies that all inverter components are backed with a 10-year warranty.

LG’s contributions for a greener world have been recognized both globally and locally. LG was ranked the 13th most sustainable global corporation by and As You Sow’s annual list. In its home country, LG claimed This Year’s Green Product award from the non-profit civic group Korea Green Purchasing Network (KGPN) for the eleventh straight year and also took KPGN’s Award of Green Masterpiece (AGM), an accolade exclusively for businesses that have made a significant contribution to the conservation of the environment.

The damage inflicted on our planet and all the life on it is one of the greatest threats we face as a global community. Overcoming such a global problem is only possible with the support of all members of society. Through its products, LG will continue to set an example that responsible products and good business can go hand in hand.

1 The acoustic airborne noise emission class of a household washing machine is determined on the basis of acoustic airborne noise emission at spinning phase. A-grade is assigned to noise level below 73dB ().
2 GWP for R290 is 3 versus 1,430 for R134a.
3 Tested by TÜV Rheinland in August 2020 with R290 applied to LG dryer models RC*0***V**.
4 Tested by VDE by comparing energy consumption between LG model GBB530NSCXE (LG Inverter Linear Compressor) and GBB530NSQWB (LG conventional reciprocating compressor). Energy consumption test based on ISO 15502 standard.

      Cultural institutions play a pivotal role in shaping the local arts, the perfect example of one being the LG Arts Center SEOUL – the pinnacle of the Korean arts and culture scene which reopened its doors to the public this year.
      Gracing the venue is the LG SIGNATURE hall, an elegant space aptly named after LG’s ultra-premium brand and global benefactor of the arts. Home to diverse, phenomenal performances, this hall is testimony to LG SIGNATURE’s firm dedication to cultivating the finest of culture. To celebrate the opening of LG Arts Center SEOUL as well as the LG SIGNATURE hall, LG on behalf of LG SIGNATURE hosted an exclusive performance series in November to deliver a “moving” experience – both literally and figuratively – to local art aficionados.

      With two major performances, He Who Falls and Opening 2, this exciting series introduced Yoann Bourgeois, a dancer-choreographer and performance director with major standing in the global contemporary performing arts world, to the most sophisticated Seoulites. Blurring the lines between acrobatics and dance, Bourgeois’s interdisciplinary approach embodied LG SIGNATURE’s philosophy and home appliances that unite the best of art and technology.

      Possibly the most sought-after performance in the LG Arts Center SEOUL opening festival was He Who Falls, which treated LG SIGNATURE hall goers to a dynamic performance directed by Bourgeois and performed by the renowned National Choreographic Center of Grenoble. During the impressive show, its exceptionally talented dancers demonstrated seamlessly elegant movements on a rotating turntable to Frank Sinatra’s iconic song, My Way.
      Meanwhile, Opening 2 offered a short yet mesmerizing glimpse into the grace, power and presence Bourgeois brings to the stage. LG SIGNATURE’s most distinguished customers and clients were invited to attend both shows so that they could fully understand the brand’s unique artistic approach to shaping customer experiences.

      As to immerse visitors in truly aesthetic sensations, LG SIGNATURE set up a special exhibition and photo zone in the LG SIGNATURE hall’s main lobby. Echoing the unique architectural style of the LG Arts Center SEOUL conceived by virtuoso Tadao Ando, the exhibition zone provided a look into the LG SIGNATURE products synonymous with artistry, including LG SIGNATURE Wine Cellar, InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator and OLED R TV.
      Elsewhere in the lobby was a fully interactive photo zone which brought Bourgeois’s performances to life again, leaving visitors with truly unforgettable impressions and sensitivities.

      Curating and introducing the best of the arts to customers worldwide, LG SIGNATURE continues to enrich the lives of so many by introducing new and unique experiences that echo the premium brand’s long-held philosophy. Stay tuned to

      I shifted to India from UAE with my 55SM9000PVA LG TV. Since it is a TV for the middle east, I can not change the region to India. Therefore I can not log in to my LG account and have apps from the LG content store of India. Ok, so I thought I should be able to use my account in UAE and use the apps which I used in UAE. Now these apps say the IP address is not from the region, so can't run those apps. So I am stuck up with an expensive smart TV without smartness. No service center, neither LG India have any answers to it. I hate using set top boxes please help.

      Guys, please advise how we can stream the FIFA World Cup on LG Smart Tv? Jio Cinema has won the exclusive rights and it would be an absolute shame if we are not able to watch the biggest sporting event in the world on our smart TV. Nullifies the entire purpose of a Smart TV. Kindly get this addressed.
