LG said its commitment to combating global climate change is unwavering. LG is adopting a gradual approach to reducing carbon emissions in its global workplace, while more UN CDM projects are underway, reflecting LG's strong commitment to environmental sustainability leadership.

In specific steps, LG will adopt a multi-faceted approach to achieve carbon neutrality. The first measure is to reduce emissions from global operations by half compared to 2017. It will achieve this through the implementation of carbon reduction initiatives and the use of renewable energy. In terms of numbers, nearly 2 million tons of carbon emissions in 2017 will fall to 960,000 tons in 2030.

It plans to do more from efficient facilities and use technologies that reduce greenhouse gases, and then reduce carbon emissions from the production process. LG has expanded its renewable energy facilities, and solar energy will also provide electricity for more company operations. It will also use efficient chillers and energy management systems to reduce its total emissions.

These efforts will be supported by purchase-certified emission reduction (CER) credits that allow for clean energy development in emerging countries. LG began to receive CER credits in 2015 and has received 340,000 tons of CERs by the end of last year, which will further raise the carbon neutral target of 2030.
