LG aims to increase the use of recycled plastic

The use of recycled materials is part of LG’s larger project to create a recovery ecosystem for electronic waste. And to increase the use of post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials in its consumer electronics and home appliances products.

For LG 10 times as much by 2025

LG used approximately 20,000 tonnes of recycled plastic in its products in 2020, and plans to increase this number more than 10 times by 2025. Recycled plastic is currently used by LG in its TVs, monitors, speakers , washing machines, refrigerators and air conditioners. It will also expand its use for the coating of products. In addition to using more recycled plastics, it is also reducing the use of virgin plastics in its businesses. This year, 18 OLED TV models were made using less virgin plastic. An increase compared to the 14 models of 2020, resulting in a reduction of almost 10,000 tons of plastic.
