In the belief that environmental sustainability is the key to unlocking a brighter future for all, LG has taken significant steps to support green initiatives across the globe. In the Middle East, LG Saudi Arabia has backed up the company’s promise to environmental conservation by launching its tree-planting CSR project in association with the ‘Yalla Green’ campaign earlier this year, with the aim of promoting energy efficiency and contributing to a greener tomorrow.
Meaning ‘let’s go together’ in Arabic, the Yalla Green campaign calls attention to effective energy efficiency by introducing a SEER-labelled green air solution lineup. In line with the Saudi Arabian government’s Vision 2030 goals, the availability of LG’s energy-conscious air conditioning products highlights its unwavering mission to preserve natural resources and reduce carbon emissions.

With Shaker, a local distributor of international home appliance brands and the company’s partner in the air conditioner production facility in Riyadh, LG Saudi Arabia launched its tree-planting initiative, which aims to push Saudi Arabia another step closer to its ambitious environmental objectives. As outlined by the Saudi Green Initiative (SGI), the country aims to plant more than 650 million trees locally by 2030, fostering environmental awareness, promoting energy conservation and creating a greener, more sustainable environment.
The company’s planting events have been well received by LG employees and volunteers, who have participated in large numbers. The initiative not only supports community development but also educates customers on the best energy conservation practices. The company’s commitment in aiming to make both small and large actions for sustainability resonates with Saudi Arabia and fosters a sense of pride among the people taking time out of their lives to do their bit for a greener future.
With trees planted at Riyadh Province’s Thadiq National Park, participants described the event as both eye-opening and informative, emphasizing the power of cooperation in creating an eco-friendly future.
LG continues to strive to make a positive difference through its energy-efficient solutions and tree planting initiatives. By prioritizing environmental sustainability, the company is contributing to the preservation of natural resources and the well-being of future generations. Through these concerted efforts, LG demonstrates its dedication to helping bring about a greener and more sustainable world.

During Frieze New York From May 17 to 21
SEOUL, May 18, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) announced today another breakthrough collaboration with
link hidden, please login to view (Ezequiel Pini b. 1985), an award-winning Argentinian designer and digital artist based in Barcelona. Over the last decade, Pini has increasingly explored how 3D tools and software can be used in his artistic practice to create imaginary, dreamlike worlds whose aesthetic is at once modernist, contemporary and, above all, elegant. The collaborative exhibition Among the Sky, which includes six specially commissioned artworks presented on large-scale format LG OLED and Lifestyle Screens, is being launched and exhibited during Frieze New York during a private preview held at The Shed May 15-16, and during the fair from May 17-21. LG OLED Arts’ collaboration with Six N. Five highlights a continuing and concerted effort in bringing together the world of digital art and advanced technology by presenting contemporary art experiences through LG OLED screens to inspire new and changing forms of the platform and broadening the ways viewers can and will experience visual culture. With premium self-lit picture quality and powerful image processing technologies, LG OLED TVs elevate the viewing and user experience in digital art display.
“We believe that LG OLED will break through the limitations of conventional media and open up the possibilities for digital art and artists,” said Kate Oh, vice president of the Brand Communication Division at the LG Home Entertainment Company. “In accordance with our motto, We inspire art, LG OLED will inspire many artists as they advance into new forms of art, transcending the borders of different fields. We could not be more excited in working with the most talented digital native artists – such as Six N. Five who understand this space.”
The series of six newly commissioned works, Among the Sky are inspired by landscape paintings, expressionism and fantasy realms of the surrealist masters but whose practice draws on digital tools of digital artwork to produce animate vignettes that blur the distinction between natural and outer worldly expressions – one physical and the other, digital. Through this unique collaboration with LG OLED and LG Art Lab, each work can be seen and experienced viscerally in the physical world while also being made available across purely large-scale, digital platforms. LG’s state-of-the-art OLED evo TVs accurately reproduce the textures and colors of the work and deliver exceptionally immersive images, offering higher brightness, clarity and detail. It is also an important aspect through such collaborations to pave the way and bridge the gap between Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 user experiences.
“The sky has no boundaries. Its immensity has always represented a sacred journey beyond perceived limits to me. The world as we know and experience has a finite horizon. It is broken when our vision is raised to connect with the sky,” shares Six N. Five. “For some, it proposes the connection to the beyond, to our divine and spiritual essence. We look up there when we ask for things, when we seek an explanation or simply when we decide to “end” the verticality of our bodies to allow us a physical and mental rest, surrounded by nature.”
The six series of works by Six N. Five will be available as NFTs (Non-Fungible Token) via LG Art Lab on May 25 at 12:00 AM EDT and also be exhibited during Frieze New York from May 17-21, 2023 at The Shed 8th Floor, Tisch Skylights located at 545 W 30th Street, New York, NY. The exhibition is co-curated by Ezequiel Pini and Derrick Li, and supported by Triple X.

Second Highest First Quarter Revenue, Strong Profitability
Reflect Actions to Upgrade Business Portfolio and Advance Operational Efficiencies
SEOUL, April 27, 2023 — LG Electronics Inc. (LG) today announced first-quarter 2023 revenues of KRW 20.4 trillion, the second highest first-quarter revenue, with operating profit of KRW 1.5 trillion, the third highest first-quarter profitability in company history. The record sales reflect the company’s actions to fundamentally improve its business structure and operational efficiency, while profitability was impacted by challenging global economic conditions.
Most notably, the company’s business structure improved with its continuously expanding B2B segment and non-hardware business areas, such as content and services, which are achieving significant growth.
The LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company generated first-quarter revenues of KRW 8.02 trillion with an operating profit of KRW 1.02 trillion. The business unit recorded its highest first-quarter revenues, with operating profit exceeding KRW 1 trillion sales for the first time. Continuous growth was driven largely by the rapid expansion of the B2B segment, fueled by sales of energy efficient heat pump-enabled products as well as energy storage systems. LG’s industry-leading heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) solutions for homes and businesses deliver strong performance and energy efficiency that reflect current European market trends based on tighter environmental regulations. The company will focus on maintaining competitiveness of its premium appliances as well as strengthening its mass-tier appliance lineup in response to polarization of market demand, along with managing cost structure to enhance profitability. The appliance business expects to see continued growth by focusing on the expanding B2B segment and accelerating the service segment including the rental and care service business, which has reached an average annual growth rate of 30 percent in South Korea over the past 5 years.
The LG Home Entertainment Company recorded first-quarter sales of KRW 3.36 trillion with an operating profit of KRW 200.3 billion. Profitability improved thanks to effective management of operational costs through enhanced demand forecasting. Despite lower global TV demand caused primarily by challenging economic conditions in Europe, the company saw increased sales of the growth of content and services businesses based on LG’s webOS smart TV platform, while strengthening operation competitiveness. Premium 2023 product launches, led by innovative products such as LG OLED evo TV models, are expected to maintain the company’s competitive edge. At the same time, the global launch of “Lifestyle Screens,” delivering differentiated designs and features, is expected to boost sales and drive the premium TV market. The LG OLED Objet Collection Posé TV will be launched in over 40 countries this year.
The LG Vehicle component Solutions Company achieved first-quarter sales of KRW 2.39 trillion with an operating profit of KRW 54 billion. The business unit recorded its highest first-quarter revenues ever. Continuing the profitability momentum from last year’s fourth quarter, continuous efforts to strengthen the global supply chain led to further increased profitability in the first quarter as the value of accumulated orders for auto parts reached KRW 80 trillion. Despite the cloud of uncertainty affecting the overall global automotive industry, demand for electric vehicles is forecasted to expand. The company will sustain its competitive edge based on a stable portfolio made up of in-vehicle infotainment systems, e-Powertrain, headlamps and distinctive solutions.
The LG Business Solutions Company saw improved first-quarter revenues of KRW 1.48 trillion with an operating profit of KRW 65.7 billion. Stable growth is driven by proactively responding to academic season demand with competitive products including the new Ultraslim LG gram laptop computers, while product competitiveness and operational efficiencies also improved. The company plans to focus on expanding its information display business by developing customized solutions and discovering potential customer demand. The company also plans to accelerate the development of new business segments, especially in South Korea, as robots (LG Future Park in Gumi) and electric vehicle chargers (LG Digital Park in Pyeongtaek) are being fully integrated in LG’s production systems.

LGE6 TV settings menu won’t open. Any settings just say loading when you click on them. I.e. picture mode, aspect ratio, and all settings
this TV has done this before but it somehow fixed itself after a month. I’m wondering if anybody knows how to correct this problem with the settings menus stuck on loading.
