Green Management

Green Management Three Management Objectives : LG H&H has adjusted the existing strategies for change according to the green management strategies of LG Group. To implement green management throughout the company, it investigated the status of all its subsidiaries and selected the corporations subject to administration. Through this, the company re-established its green management objectives, including the ones for HAITAI Beverage, which it acquired in 2010. In addition, to achieve the three green management objectives of “Green Establishment,””Green New Product” and “Green New Project” effectively, the company has selected the five implementation tasks and implemented them

Green Management Three Management Objectives : Green Establishment, Green New Project, Green New Product, Five Implementation Tasks : Reinforce R&D and facility investment, Continuously improve portfolio, Actively develop green products, Expand investment in new green projects, Fortify green partnerships

Green Management Goal

The green management objective is to establish the reduction target by year (from the base year to 2020) for each establishment and achieve the detailed reduction plan through green management investment. When the base year is 2009, the GHG emission target is to reduce the emissions by 40% over BAU (business as usual) by 2020 and the water use target is a reduction of 30%. To attain such reduction targets, the company is planning to invest KRW 51 billion in green management by 2020. In addition, to develop new green products, the company is expanding carbon labeling products and renewable energy-related products.
