One Manufacturer Proves Benefits of Recycling

October 16, 2014

Making the World a Better Place

There is no doubt that electronics have made the world a better place. From communications to energy consumption, products made by electronics companies continue to amaze the public. With this huge accomplishment also comes the responsibility of providing a safe environment. The recycling efforts of manufacturers, such as LG Electronics USA, prove that sustainability is possible in bringing products to a full life circle..

Precious metals, copper, plastic and glass are the components that are used in building technically advanced items like cell phones, lighting, and small appliances. Discarding of these electronics can cause harm when mishandled. Companies recycling their own manufactured products create a useful and responsible atmosphere for limiting dangerous materials, preserving the environment, and promoting recycling.

And the Award Goes To…

LG-1This year’s 2014 Gold Tier Award in the EPA’s Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Program, sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, was presented to LG Electronics USA. This firm has proven that companies who recycle can commit to much more than promoting recycling efforts. From manufacturing to tracking, collecting, and recycling, LG kept more than 21,000 metric ton of electronic waste from ending up in landfills in 2013.

We see major electronic firms as a window to the future, but when extra steps are taken to preserve our planet and to minimize harm, it is no wonder that LG Electronics USA is a leader in technology in consumer electronics.

The goal of LG is to cut 50% carbon emissions from their U.S. facilities by 2020. Selling a range of innovative electronic products and having a huge global presence, LG Electronics USA can show others how incorporating third-party recyclers in manufacturing can make a significant green impact on the world.
