We run an executive-level ESG working committee under the Board of Directors and newly established safety,
health, and environment divisions to pursue
These divisions receive reports on and manage the outcomes of environmental management activities, such as eco-friendly safety management system
operation, eco-friendly waste management, energy-saving and greenhouse gas emissions for each wired and wireless equipment, and company-operated store,
and responses to the initiatives on sustainability.
LG U+ has adopted a groundwater recycling system to its Yongsan Office building to manage water resources
efficiently and is eco-friendly.
The system is equipped with a reprocessing facility that recycles groundwater as drinking water, potable water, and heavy water.
As for drinking water, water quality tests are regularly performed.
In 2020, LG U+'s waste recycling rate of wastes subjected to licensing exceeded the target of 95%. In
2021, we set our goal at 95% once again and have been performing
various activities to reduce waste and improve recycling.
To properly dispose of industrial waste (waste wires, communication equipment, etc.), we select a company in charge of waste disposal by applying strict standards.
All the waste is handled and disposed of by the recycling company in legal and eco-friendly ways.
To respond to the climate crisis, LG U+ strives to use more renewable energy in the communication network
facilities and data centers and save energy.
Pyeongchon Mega Center, one of our representative IDC centers, uses solar panels and the geothermal pump system to generate renewable energy.
Furthermore, we have been trying to introduce and expand renewable energy throughout our communication businesses, such as increasing solar-powered
LTE base stations in mountainous and island areas.
To address climate change and pursue sustainability, LG U+ joined in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and
has disclosed climate change response strategies,
greenhouse gas emissions, and reduction efforts every year.
In the 2020 assessment, it was listed on ‘Carbon Management Sector Honors,’ awarded to the top five companies across different sectors in Korea.
LG U+ also proved that it is an excellent company in terms of carbon management because it was listed on the ‘Sector Honors’ from 2014 to 2020 for seven consecutive years.
