Solar Plays Pivotal Role on LG’s Road to Zero Carbon


News Reporter

Recommended Posts

Companies and manufacturers around the world are increasing their efforts to move away from fossil fuel-based means of production to renewable energy. LG Electronics is in an enviable position because it is one of the biggest producers of solar panels in the world. As such, LG has committed to achieving zero negative environmental impact and reducing carbon emissions in the production phase by 50 percent compared to 2017 figures by 2030.

, LG Electronics completed the construction of a roof-type solar power plant at its production facility in Rayong, Thailand. Established in 1997, the Rayong plant is one of company’s key manufacturing hubs for LG home appliance products. The plant is equipped with 9,400 solar panels with a capacity of 4.2 MW (megawatt) and began collecting solar energy last month.

This business was launched last year in partnership with several partners including global investment company BECIS (Berkeley Energy Commercial Industrial Solutions). Under the mutually beneficial structure of a power purchase agreement (PPA), LG expects to produce high-quality renewable energy based on its advanced technology and reduce facility costs by receiving a steady stream of energy at below market price.

“As an important production base for producing LG’s washing machines and air conditioners, we are fully committed to achieve the RE100 goals of converting to 100 percent renewable energy sources,” said Jaesung Lee, president of LG Electronics Thailand. “By installing the solar panels on the unused space of the factory roof, we were able to reduce the overall cost of construction while maximizing space utilization.”

LG is already generating solar energy at its manufacturing site in Noida, India, which is equipped with solar modules with a capacity of 3.2 MW. LG’s North American corporate headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, USA has made solar a key component of its goal to convert all energy used in production and North American offices into 100 percent renewable energy by the end of 2021.

These are just some of the examples of the initiatives LG is taking to reach its sustainability goals around the world to create a better world for all. And there’s more to come…

      Hi just got a new QNED LG to replace 2021 Nano tv
      the problem is I can’t move my HD channels down to  channels 1 to5.
      the program manager does not have the function to move channels like my old Nano tv which is only a year older.
      is there anyway I can get around this strange function?

      For LG, 2022 was a defining year for its unwavering journey towards sustainability after the company successfully redirected its focus to collaborations for a greater collective impact through its global innovation challenge, the LIFE’S GOOD AWARD.
      Innovators hailing from all four corners of the globe answered LG’s call with creativity, passion and a drive to make sure Life’s Good, with novel solutions that bring much-needed hope of a brighter future for people and the planet. Among the countless game-changing ideas submitted, the best four were selected to be presented at the LIFE’S GOOD AWARD Conference held in January, in what would be the grand finale.

      With innovation at its core, it was only fitting that LG Sciencepark, the company’s immense innovation hub based in Magok (South Korea), was chosen to host the conference. The four finalists joined the judging panel of respected scholars and LG executives to give their final pitches that would determine which award they would be taking home. But this was by no means a closed event, as the public was warmly invited to tune into the conference’s afternoon events.
      Lee Jeong-seok, head of LG Electronics’ Global Marketing Center
      The day kicked off with a presentation from each team and the judging panel gave valuable feedback and asked questions based on the solution’s impact, innovation and sustainability. And finally, the moment everyone had waited for; the announcement of who would be receiving what prize at the awards ceremony held later that day.

      Public attendees interested in LG’s latest sustainability efforts were greeted to the park by a special exhibition booth providing an interesting overview of each top-four solution, as well as a look into LG’s most notable products promoting environmental sustainability and accessibility.

      The ‘Dot pad,’ Dot Incorporation’s tactile graphic display, was one of them. Featuring 2,400 braille pins/dots which move up and down to convert information, this device gave visitors the opportunity to experience how the visually impaired ‘see’ the world through their fingertips.

      Next up was Day1Lab’s alternative plastic solution which promotes its vision of a green Earth devoid of all harmful microplastic waste. This exhibit was set up to clearly demonstrate how carbohydrate complex materials degrade naturally in freshwater and earth, as to not harm the planet’s beautiful and diverse ecosystems.

      Similarly, SOLUTUM presented an alternative plastic solution which degrades naturally in freshwater without toxic residue. Attendees were eager to see the eco-friendly material close up, especially as it’s expected to be featured in consumer products soon in partnership with a leading beverage brand.

      Water desalination was the key initiative outlined in NONA Technologies’ exhibit. It’s here where onlookers could discover how a desalination solution that removes minerals from raw water completely changes the outlook of agriculture and water-deprived communities over the world.
      Professor Christopher Marquis, a professor at Cambridge Judge Business School
      Following this exclusive tour of the winning solutions, everyone gathered for the long-awaited awards ceremony. But before the awards were handed out, a welcoming address by LG, special lectures from presiding professors and speeches from the winning teams were conducted, a perfect example of how businesses, scholars and innovators can come together as one for a better world.

      The curtains closed on the ceremony with a big round of applause for the winners, with Dot Inc. (South Korea), SOLUTUM (Israel), Day1Lab (South Korea) and NONA Technologies (the United States) claiming the Grand Prix, Gold, Silver and Bronze awards, respectively. The jury lauded the four winners’ amazing dedication and visionary solutions.

      Through a relentless drive for innovation and an unwavering commitment to connecting with some of the brightest minds in the world, LG will continue to foster a Better Life for All. Stay tuned to
