LG Electronics

We believe that for LG Electronics to earn the trust of stakeholders as a responsible and ethical corporate citizen, we must become a healthy organism in the market ecosystem and assume a proactive role in making the system healthier with our products and services. Moreover, we need to take care of our communities, help those in need become self-reliant and form trust-based relationships. To meet this goal, LGE has established four strategic directions: CSR Change Management, CSR Risk Management, Stakeholder Engagement, and Strategic Social Contribution.
