LG Electronics receives the highest possible rating in the 2021 MindClick Sustainability Assessment Program (MSAP) for Marriott International. As a supplier of hotel TVs and digital signage displays for 14 Marriott brands, LG has earned the “Leader” rating for seven consecutive years and remains the only display manufacturer to receive the distinction.
The assessment program evaluates products based on their operational footprint, with environmental and social metrics such as energy, carbon, and water reduction, and human and labor rights. It also measures metrics like carbon footprint from product use and distribution, recyclability, as well as the use of sustainable materials, and the avoidance of chemicals of high concern. Suppliers are recognized on one of three levels: Starter, Achiever, and Leader.
“We are honored to once again be recognized by MindClick as a sustainability leader. Since we began our alliance with Marriott in 2005, we’ve always held a shared responsibility to reduce environmental impact, while enhancing the quality of life for guests. We feel vindicated in our dedication to product stewardship and being a responsible corporate citizen,” states Thomas Yoon, president and CEO of LG Electronics North America.
In 2021, LG achieved top scores in seven of the nine evaluation categories:
- Guest health
- End of use
- Facility impact
