Through Company’s Eco-conscious Technologies that Protect the Earth, Making a Difference Every Day is Far Easier for Everyone
One of the major theme on the environment issues is Ecosystem Restoration. Hugely important to our planet’s biodiversity, ecosystems represent the interaction between living organisms — people, plants and animals — and the diverse environments they reside in, whether that be a diverse rainforest or sprawling concrete jungle created by man.
There are seemingly limitless ways of bringing new life to environments that have been ravaged by humankind, and giant corporations, nations and international organizations are working together more than ever to alleviate greenhouse gases, save rare plants and animals on the brink of extinction and enrich the biodiversity of our lands. For normal people, reimagining a future that speaks up for the environment is a good place to start. By simply taking a reusable shopping bag to the grocery store, eating more environmentally-friendly foods or factoring eco-conscious thinking into our purchasing decisions, anyone can make a difference.
With the wellbeing of all living things in mind, LG Electronics (LG) has been helping consumers make smarter, greener choices for years. With a long history of innovation in home appliances, residential heating and cooling systems, LG has set an example for consumer electronics companies to follow by developing world-class eco-conscious technologies that take care of chores and keep homes fresh and comfortable without leaving a large environmental footprint.
Natural Power of Steam
The TrueSteam™ technology featured in LG’s dishwasher, dryer 1 and Styler harnesses the natural power of steam to cut through dirt and food debris and eliminate the fabric stains you can see – and the bacteria 2 and odors 3 you can’t. The high-temperature steam is created by boiling water inside the appliance, which means less harmful detergent finds its way into our wastewater systems.
A Next-Generation Refrigerant
By adopting a low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant, LG is taking its ecological responsibility to the next step by presenting solutions that pose less threat to the environment. R32, the industry’s most talked about refrigerant, has 70 percent lower GWP and requires 20 percent less gas than R410A, making the company’s heating and hot water system, Therma V, and air conditioning system, Multi V S, more environment-friendly.
LG has upgraded its DUAL Inverter Heat Pump dryer lineup by switching its refrigerant from R314A to R290 – one of the lowest-GWP refrigerants around. What’s more, the dryer lineup meets the high standards of TÜV Rheinland required for Green Product certification thanks to their sustainable use of resources and climate change mitigation.
The restoration of our ecosystems should not lie at the feet of a few, because it really is everyone’s responsibility. Governments, businesses, communities and individuals across the world all have a vital part to play in making amends for the past, and there’s no better time to begin your eco-friendly mission than today. It’s time to make those small, smarter changes to everyday life that will help make a better tomorrow possible.
