LG RECOGNIZED WITH EPA’S HIGHEST ENERGY STAR® DISTINCTION
2014 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award
A long-time participant of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR program, LG believes we all play an important role in protecting our environment.
LG was extremely proud when they won the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award for the first time in 2012, and again in 2013, for their efforts to manufacture and support products with exceptional energy performance. Since first winning the award LG has strives to constantly expand efforts to help consumers combat climate change and conserve the environment.
This year LG has been acknowledged by EPA with a 2014 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year-Sustained Excellence Award, which is the highest distinction granted to ENERGY STAR partners who have shown an intense commitment to helping consumers become more and more energy efficient. In addition, LG is one of only 10 companies out of tens of thousands of ENERGY STAR Partners to be awarded with the inaugural 2014 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year-Climate Communications Award this year.
Here are some highlights of LG’s efforts:
Innovation and savings
LG prides themselves on developing the most innovative energy efficient products that not only provide their customers with remarkable performance, but also help them save energy, time and money. For example, LG TVs feature the Intelligent Sensor which automatically calibrate and optimize brightness, white balance, color and contrast based on the ambient light in the room. LG TVs also include a power saving mode with backlight dimming: 5 modes of High, Medium, Low, Off, and Auto with a mechanical power-off switch so that the LG TV uses no standby power while not in use.
Going the extra mile
In 2013, more than 100 LG products were identified with the ENERGY STAR “Most Efficient” distinction. This Award observes noteworthy products that represent the leading edge in energy efficient products for a particular year. With LG’s heightened focus on energy efficiency products, it shouldn’t shock you that last year more than 1.6 million of LG’s energy efficient products given this distinction were purchased.
Change is good
In addition to building the most innovative energy efficient appliances and electronics possible, LG also works hard to make sure consumers understand how they can help do their part to combat climate change. In 2013, LG had a nationwide public education and community outreach campaign about energy efficiency which reached tens of millions of consumers. This effort was created to help consumers recognize the positive impact their energy-efficient practices can have on the environment.
As a long-time ENERGY STAR participant, LG is extremely honored to be recognized by the EPA for their continuing leadership and long-term commitment to energy efficiency through both the Climate Communications awards and the ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence.
It’s all possible with LG. And with LG and ENERGY STAR, you don’t have to forgo style or performance to have energy efficiency. LG Electronics’ accomplishments were recognized at an awards ceremony on April 29. Contact Seagull Electronics today for more information on LG!!
