LG Hausys Green Management

LG Hausys systemically advances environmental management on the basis of its green management system.
In so doing, we aim to deliver eco-friendly worksites that reduce GHG and air pollutant emissions, save resources and expand recycling initiatives. In addition, eco-friendly material-based and highly energy-efficient products will be our top priority in developing products and undertaking business strategies so that we fulfill our social responsibility to achieve low carbon green growth.

Green Management Worksites

Green Worksites Reduce GHG emissions and energy consumption Reduce the emission of air pollutants and the use of resources Operate a green management system Expansion of New Green Products and Operations Develop Green Identity and Eco Collection Develop more products with exceptional energy performance Improve indoor air quality and expand products made from natural materials

Eco-Friendly Products

It is based on our core values of ‘Eco-Friendly, Energy Saving, Human-Friendly’
that we at LG Hausys develop eco products and deliver flourishing living spaces to our customers.

Development of Eco Products

LG Hausys uses its definition of Green Identity in developing eco products. Our top priorities in product development are ‘Eco-Friendly’ products that are made from eco-friendly materials to deliver more natural and enjoyable living spaces as well as ‘Zero-Emission’ products that are highly efficient and adopt renewable energy to help minimize GHG emissions. These principles guide our endeavors to develop new green products.
