LG Electronics Named 2015 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year


WASHINGTON, D.C. — LG Electronics has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the 2015 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year-Sustained Excellence Award for continued leadership in protecting the environment through energy efficient consumer electronics and home appliance products.

LG also earned the 2015 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year-Climate Communications Award for efforts to raise consumers' awareness of the impact of climate change.

"LG values our partnership with ENERGY STAR, and it's exciting to see the positive impact LG is making with American consumers," said William Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics USA. "We're helping consumers experience Innovation for a Better Life by creating products that deliver energy savings without sacrificing performance or style. We are committed, now more than ever, to continuing our work to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect the environment."

Applauding LG for its accomplishments, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said, "Through their sustained participation with ENERGY STAR, LG is helping Americans save money, save energy, and do their part to reduce our nation's greenhouse gas emissions that fuel climate change. I applaud LG for earning EPA's highest ENERGY STAR honor, the 2015 Partner of the Year-Sustained Excellence Award, demonstrating a strong commitment to energy efficiency and to preserving a healthy planet for future generations."

Recognized by the EPA as ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for the past four years, LG is committed to developing the most innovative and energy-efficient products that provide consumers with superior performance while achieving significant energy savings and lessening the impact on the planet.

In 2014, the company offered nearly 300 ENERGY STAR certified models in a range of product categories including clothes washers, dishwashers, refrigerators, TVs, computer monitors, room air conditioners and LED lighting. LG increased its total sales of ENERGY STAR certified products by nearly 18 percent from 2013.

LG expanded its efforts in 2014 to further promote the ENERGY STAR brand. American consumers purchased more than 1 million LG products that were awarded the "ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2014" distinction, which helps consumers easily identify the most efficient products among those that have earned the ENERGY STAR label.

LG also celebrated a key industry milestone in 2014, introducing the ultra-efficient LG EcoHybrid Heat Pump Dryer, the first recipient of the 2014 ENERGY STAR Emerging Technology Award.

The LG EcoHybrid dryer uses 50 percent less energy compared to conventional electric dryers. LG also was the first to announce ENERGY STAR certified gas dryers in 2014, even before the new U.S. Department of Energy efficiency standards for dryers took effect in 2015.
