Responsible Fiber Sourcing
Packaging boxes shall be made from pulp consisting of at least 50% of recycled paper, also packaging papers are 80% at least. In addition, LGE encourages our supplier to use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement for Forest Certification Schemes) certified packaging papers.
LG Electronics intends to minimize the use of resources through the application of eco-friendly packaging and reductions in the size and weight of packaging.
Starting in 2014, LGE has focused on improvements in packaging design by setting targets for reduction in the weights, volume and space of packaging for each business sector, and checking target achievements twice per year.
