Sustainability is at the forefront of our minds more than ever, with many of us determined to take action for a more earth-conscious lifestyle for ourselves and our families. 

We’re well versed in the importance of reducing plastic, minimising energy consumption and recycling religiously, but one area that may sometimes be overlooked when it comes to sustainability is the appliances in our kitchens. If you’re in need of an upgrade, or replacement appliance, consider LG’s range of eco-conscious products. 

LG is adopting a more sustainable approach in four major ways with their eco-friendly-product commitments:

  • By promoting an intelligent lifestyle Sustainability is a driving force behind product development, with smart products that put the planet's health at the forefront
  • Aiming for zero carbon LG aims to decrease and neutralise carbon emissions within the manufacturing process
  • Promoting a circular economy by recycling wastes within the production process and collecting e-waste for proper recycling after use
  • Striving for a better society LG strives for a sustainable business eco-system, from an eco-friendly supply chain to creating a fair and safe workplace for all employees.

Revised energy efficiency ratings 

From March 2021, revised energy efficiency classes for household appliances are coming into play so there is more transparency around sustainability. Consumers will find revamped labels on dishwashers, washing machines, fridges and televisions, with scores ranging from A-G (with A being the most energy-efficient rating), eliminating the A+, A++, A+++ classes. 

This new system aims to give consumers a more accurate representation of appliances’ energy consumption and is a great aid for the eco-conscious buyer when it comes to new purchases on products that can typically use up a lot of energy, such as washing machines and freezers. LG’s has a range of A Rated products that will help us work towards a more sustainable future together. 

LG products with an A Rating 

Two standout product’s from LG’s range are the Direct Drive TrueSteam Washing Machine and the LG DoorCooling™ Fridge Freezer - the only fridge freezer currently in the world with an A rating.
