      First-of-Its-Kind LexisNexis Report Ranks LG Among Top 100 Companies
      Accelerating Innovation to Achieve United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

      NEW YORK, July 11, 2023 – LG Electronics Inc. (LG) has been recognized as a world leader in leveraging technology to address sustainability and social challenges, according to a just-released groundbreaking report. LG is ranked 13th among the top 100 corporate patent owners advancing transformative solutions toward the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the new report, “Exploring the Global Sustainable Innovation Landscape: The Top 100 Companies and Beyond,” by LexisNexis® Intellectual Property Solutions.
      “Now more than ever, the intersection of innovation and sustainability is creating opportunities for companies to make a difference in addressing some of the world’s most pressing issues,” said LG Electronics North America CEO Thomas Yoon. “LG’s Better Life for All ESG mission builds on our longstanding role in the UN Global Compact and aligns with SDG initiatives driving positive impact for people, communities and the planet.”
      With the release of Exploring the Global Sustainable Innovation Landscape, LexisNexis introduces what it calls “a new standard of excellence for responsible and sustainable business.” By objectively mapping the SDG targets and indicators to the global patent system and applying the Patent Asset Index, a widely accepted evaluation methodology featured in the LexisNexis® PatentSight® platform, the report identifies the companies such as LG that are building a healthier, prosperous and more sustainable world through the contributions of their patent portfolios.

      Company Celebrates Decade-Long Legacy With Its Employees and Partners,
      Recognizing Their Tireless Efforts in Driving Mobility Sector Innovation
        
      SEOUL, June 29, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) marked the 10th anniversary of the establishment of its Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company this week, hosting a ceremony in Seoul under the theme of Driving Better Future Mobility, attended by over 3,000 employees. While presenting at the 10th anniversary ceremony, Eun Seok-hyun, president of LG VS Company, shared ‘Vision 2030,’ a bold initiative to secure the company’s position as a global leader in the automotive solutions market by the beginning of the next decade.
      “The surplus in sales we achieved last year is a testament to the solid business structure our company has built over the past 10 years,” said Eun Seok-hyun. “We will become a global leader in the electric vehicle (EV) components industry, driving the era of EVs and autonomous vehicles through technological and design innovation.”
      LG CEO William Cho made a special appearance at the event, delivering an inspiring message of encouragement. “We have arrived at this significant milestone thanks to the trust of our customers and the dedication of our employees,” said CEO Cho. “The LG VS Company will continue to innovate and strive for better future mobility.”
      Since establishing the VS Company in 2013, LG has continued to nurture its auto parts business, viewing it from the outset as a key driver of future growth. Moving forward a decade, LG is now strengthening its position in the global auto parts market based on consistent growth in three key areas: the LG VS Company’s vehicle infotainment solutions; LG Magna e-Powertrain, a joint venture with Magna International to develop and produce EV powertrain technology; and ZKW Group’s vehicle lighting systems.
      The LG VS Company successfully turned an operating profit for the first time in the second quarter of 2022, marking a turnaround after 26 consecutive quarters in the negative. Last year, the company recorded sales of KRW 8,649.6 billion and an operating profit of KRW 169.6 billion. It also finished 2022 with an order backlog with a total value of approximately KRW 80 trillion.
      Infotainment, which combines driving information and entertainment, provides a vehicle’s driver and passengers with enhanced in-car experiences. The heart of any EV, the powertrain – including the motor, inverter and converter – generates and transmits power. Located at the front of the car and integrating electric auto parts and sensors, the lighting system in smart vehicles plays a vital role in maintaining on-road safety.
      At the core of the company’s business lies its in-vehicle infotainment system (IVI), which employs advanced telematics (vehicle communications module) and a digital cockpit system (head unit). LG’s telematics solution secured an impressive 22.4 percent share of the vehicle telematics market in the first quarter of 2023, while its digital cockpit system has recorded a double-digit market share since 2021.
      LG’s global partners shared inspiring, congratulatory video messages that were screened at the Seoul event:
      Ahn Hyung-ki, senior vice president of the Electronics Development Center & Mobility Technology Center at Hyundai Motor Group, said, “LG has demonstrated a dedication to making better products, consistently meeting our requests by solving difficult challenges. We hope that the LG VS Company and Hyundai will continue to work together to lead the automobile industry.”
      Kwon Hae-young, vice president of the Infotainment Development Center at Hyundai Motor Group, stated, “Participating with LG in the mass production joint ceremony in 2018 was especially memorable for me. I would like to thank LG’s development team for their passion and dedication to our ongoing collaboration.”
      Jeff Morrison, General Motors’ (GM) vice president of Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, offered these words: “We sincerely congratulate LG VS Company on its 10th anniversary. LG has been a trusted supplier to GM since even before the VS Company was officially formed, and has long proved its commitment to helping our brands provide differentiated in-vehicle experiences. Let’s all stay committed to developing innovative technologies that enhance the driving experience and promote safety on the road.”
      Julien Battiston, Head of Renault’s Software Defined Vehicle (SDV) Product Line, said, “LG has very talented software engineers and a flexible business model. I hope that we can create more success together in the future.”

      Receiving Certification for ISO/IEC DIS 18974 Compliance, Company
      Aims to Strengthen Competitiveness of Its Software-Based Businesses

      SEOUL, April 28, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) recently earned industry-first recognition for its software supply chain security management system, receiving ISO/IEC DIS 18974 certification – the international standard for open source software (OSS) security management systems established by the Linux Foundation’s OpenChain Project. Comprised of a global network of companies, the OpenChain Project is a voluntary consultative body focused on building trust in the OSS supply chain.
      LG’s software supply chain security management system meets over thirty of the requirements stipulated by the OpenChain Project, including the establishment of internal policies related to OSS security, the periodic updating of security policies and the use of various tools for software security testing.
      The first global manufacturer to obtain the ISO/IEC DIS 18974 certification, LG continues to demonstrate its advanced capabilities and a strong commitment to responding to security vulnerabilities in the software supply chain.
      As part of the company’s strategy to upgrade its business portfolio, the company is accelerating its advancement into non-hardware business areas, such as platforms, solutions as well as content and services, by leveraging its accumulated software capabilities and expertise in diverse segments including home appliances, TVs, electric vehicle components and B2B solutions. Additionally, by securing global competitiveness in terms of OSS supply chain security and stability, LG expects to further strengthen overall business competitiveness.
      With the heavy reliance on software systems in today’s business environment, the importance of OSS security cannot be overstated. According to the
      link hidden, please login to view released by global security company, Synopsys, about 81 percent of OSS used in software development has security vulnerabilities. OSS is distributed with its source code, making it publicly available for use, modification and distribution by anyone at any time. It can reduce the time and cost of software development and is advantageous in terms of ecosystem expansion, leading to its wide use across service and platform development.
      In 2019, LG became the first Korean company to conform to ISO/IEC 5230, the International Standard for open source license compliance. In 2014, the company developed the OSS management tool ‘FOSSLight’ (Free and Open Source Software Light), which has been available to external developers, contributing to the revitalization of the global OSS ecosystem since 2021.
      “LG will further enhance its capabilities for security for products and services by continuously upgrading its open source software security management system,” said Park In-sung, head of the Software Center at LG Electronics.
