A global electronic giant, LG Electronics has observed that the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 is a grand challenge, especially for businesses.
The President, LG Electronics, Middle East & Africa Region, Mr. IL Hwan Lee, who stated this at a recent function said LG is committed to the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit.
Lee explained that as a global electronic giant, LG Electronics has worked with the UN and other notable non-governmental organisations across the world to support the SDGs and restated its commitment to better the life for all through its products and services.
“As a responsible global corporate citizen, LG Electronics is set to contributing to the achievement of the SDGs as the main goal of its social contribution activities. Our focus is on developing new innovations across Sustainability for the Community. We are committed to providing electronic products that help customers live better. To support this, we have developed a mid to long term plan themed: LGE & SDGs which we are working towards”, he said.
According to him, in the last couple of years, LG has introduced a wide range of products across the areas of TVs & Home Entertainment, Kitchen, Laundry, Computers, Air Conditioning & Solar that fit into the technologies of the future with the SDGs at heart. Some of such that promote eco-friendly society include LG DUAL Inverter, LG NeON 2, LG WashTower and the CordZero M9 robot vacuum cleaner.
The revolutionary DUAL Inverter Compressor technology inside LG’s air conditioners never stops adjusting speed for the perfect temperatures without wasting electricity thanks to its lower speed. The compressor reduces electricity usage by 70 percent despite cooling rooms 40 per cent faster than conventional models.
