CSR maturity

C-
We cannot say in truth that transparency is the order of the day as far as LG are concerned. Certainly, like all manufacturers, its internet site has a "social and environmental responsibility" section, but the information presented does not allow an analysis of the company's performance and its real commitment, as the content is of a general nature and is is not well supported. In addition, LG publishes a CSR report, which it has not self-declared with the GRI, but is audited by Two Tomorrows Asia, an international firm specialising in sustainable development.
Finally, in general terms, LG does not publish any environmental information relating to product components or to the competences provided by the manufacturer to support the end of life management of hardware. This only goes to confirm the general impression.
In addition, Greenpeace criticises the company in its "Guide To Greener Electronics" report by relegating it to 13th place with a score of 2.8/10, highlighting the lack of evidence and/or provision of information regarding the implementation of undertakings made. In the same way, Newsweek puts the group in 65th position among the 500 most environmentally responsible companies in its 2011 "Green Rankings".

Let us hope that LG signs up to its social responsibility in a more sustainable and more committed way.
