LG Joins EPA’s Green Power Partnership with 100% Green Energy Use at HQ

LG Electronics USA is purchasing more than 1.5 million kWh of green power over the next 18 months in cooperation with the EPA’s Green Power Partnership program, the company said.

LG said it will by enough green power products from BlueStar Energy to provide 100 percent of electricity use for its Englewood Cliffs, N.J., headquarters building.

With this commitment and its other sustainability efforts, the company said that it hopes to meet its goal of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2020, from 2007 levels.

According to the LG website, its other sustainable programs include the LG Electronics Green Program, which monitors hazardous substance management, import inspection and inspection on 4,400 suppliers. The program was set up in 2005.

LG also is considering a program to provide voluntary electronics take-back for more product types and in countries without a set policy in place. For example, the company considering and reviewing India’s draft bill for E-Waste Rules, which is similar to the EU’s directives on Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), the website said.

In March this year LG was named 2012 Energy Star Partner of the Year by EPA for its contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by manufacturing energy-efficient appliances and products, and helping to educate consumers about those products.

The EPA Green Power Partnership publishes a list updated quarterly of the country’s top green power purchasers, with another list especially for Fortune 500 companies.
