According to LG's sustainability report released on July 21, the company will replace up to 90 percent of its internal combustion vehicles with zero-carbon cars by 2025 and 100 percent of LG cars will be based on clean energy by 2030.
To go completely green by 2050, LG Electronics has adopted high-performance solar panels to cover the rooftops of factories and other facilities at home and abroad. As a result, the company emitted 129 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2eq) in 2020, which was 33 percent less than the amount of carbon emitted in 2017.
"We have set a new ESG goal to achieve sustainable growth," LG Electronics CEO Kwon Bog-seok was quoted as saying. The company used 11,149 tons of recycled plastics in 2020, up 20 percent from a year ago.
