LG are hoping to educate consumers and retailers alike about sustainability and the Carbonfund.org Foundation by introducing carbon neutral products to the market.
For the first time ever, home appliances including TV monitors and refrigerators; as well as solar panels and various consumer electronics are being distributed with the CarbonFree Sustainability Label by LG.
The Cardbonfund.org Foundation is the leading non-profit organisation for carbon reduction.
Offering climate solutions to individuals, small businesses and large corporations, they make reducing climate impact easy and affordable.
By supporting third-party validated renewable energy, energy efficiency and forestry projects, the Carbonfund.org Foundation are making carbon neutrality more accessible and a realistic goal for everyone.
CarbonFree Sustainability Label
The CarbonFree Sustainability Label is a transparent, meaningful label that distinguishes products that have undergone a rigorous third-party certification process.
Earlier this year, LG completed a life cycle analysis (LCA) on six core products. The analysis took place from raw material extraction, during production, all the way through to end of use and disposal in order to determine their carbon footprints.
Eric Carlson, Carbonfund.org Foundation President, commented that this will mark the first time that certified LCD TV monitors, refrigerators, clothes washers, LED lamps and solar panel products will be available to the public.
LG representatives visited Carbonfund.org in Washington to sign the partnership agreement.
In attendance was President and CEO of LG Electronics USA, Wayne Park, who stated: “As part of our goal to become the most sustainable consumer products company in the world, LG is thrilled to partner with the Carbonfund.org [Foundation] in this ground breaking effort,”
“Achieving the CarbonFree label for these products both validates the efforts we have made to reduce our carbon footprint and provides consumers important information they can trust.”
