The 14th (January 2010) Guide to Greener Electronics assessment of LG.
Executive summary: LG Electronics moves back up the ranking from 11th to 6th place, with its score rising from 4.7 points to 5.1. It continues to be weighed down by the penalty point imposed for back-tracking on its commitment to have all its products free of PVC vinyl plastic and brominated flame retardants (BFRs) by the end of 2010. Now only mobile phones will be free of these toxic substances from 2010; TVs, monitors and PCs have to wait until 2012 and household appliance models until 2014. LGE has launched its first mobile phone that is free from PVC and BFRs and has six models of ‘halogen-free’ Optical Disk Drives.
