Greener Electronics LG Electronics Ranking - 11th Edition

สิ่งพิมพ์ - มีนาคม 31, 2552
LG Electronics remains in 6th position, although its score drops from 5.7 in v.10 to 5.5, losing points for backtracking on its commitment to have all its products free of PVC and BFRs by the end of 2010. Now only mobile products will be free of these toxic substances from 2010; the timeline for eliminating them in TVs and monitors has been delayed until after 2012. BFRs are still to be eliminated in other product lines like washing machines, but no timeline is given and eliminating PVC in household appliances is no longer in LGE’s work plan. LGE has launched new models of mobile phones with halogen-free housings, packaging and main printed wiring board. It provides a timeline of 2012 for eliminating phthalates and antimony – but only in new models of mobile products.
