LG Display has announced that its 65-inch OLED TV panel has been awarded Product Carbon Footprint Certification from the Carbon Trust.

The Carbon Trust is a global climate consultancy driven by its mission to accelerate the move to a decarbonized future, and its Product Carbon Footprint Certification is an internationally recognized environmental certification.

The OLED panel received this recognition by meeting the global standard (PAS 2050) on GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emissions throughout the entire product life cycle.

As LG Display’s self-emissive OLED TV panel requires no backlight, the panel is able to significantly reduce the use of plastic materials by up to 90 per cent compared to LCD panels, improving recycling rate (to 92.7 per cent) by raising the use of iron and metal materials.

The announcement is the latest acknowledgment of LG Display’s environmental commitment. The company’s OLED TV panel previously received Eco Product Certification from SGS, a Swiss-based global leader in inspection, for excelling in terms of environmental friendliness in four categories: Recycling, Hazardous Substances, Resource Efficiency and Energy Efficiency.

Its OLED TV panel’s energy efficiency this year by 22 per cent, compared to previous panels, through its newly-unveiled META Technology, which combines Micro Lens Array (MLA) technology, that maximizes light emissions with META Booster, the company’s exclusive brightness-enhancing algorithm.

The glass is also recognized as setting a benchmark low blue light emission.

LG Display has introduced its Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) system in 2021 to comprehensively evaluate every environmental impact created during a product’s life cycle. Using this new initiative, the company successfully reduced its total use of materials and parts and minimised greenhouse gases and power consumption during manufacturing.

“We aim to enhance the eco-friendliness and competitiveness of our OLED TV panels by incorporating environmentally sustainable technologies into LG Display’s unmatched technological expertise” said Kwon-shik Park, Vice President of Foundation Technology Laboratory at LG Display.
