LG Washers Meet Sustainability Requirements

July 11, 2013

Several washing machine models from LG Electronics are the first to meet the requirements of the new CSA sustainability verification service for industry’s AHAM 7003-2013/CSA SPE-7003-13/UL 7003, Sustainability Standard for Household Clothes Washers.

LG models WM8000HVA and WM8000HWA achieved the scores required to meet the new environmental standard. The LG washers meet the standard based on a lifecycle approach for identifying the environmental impacts in six key areas including materials, manufacturing and operations, energy and water consumption during use, innovation, use of consumables and end-of-life management.

“Environmental sustainability has become as important to our customers as it has been to our company for a long time,” said Chris Jung, president of home appliances, LG Electronics USA, Inc. “LG is proud to be first with washing machines verified to the new sustainability standard. Together with CSA Group, LG is leading the way in addressing various aspects of the product’s lifecycle.”
