LG Chem Supports Energy Cost Savings in Regional Welfare Facilities
■ Labor-management jointly donated solar power generator at a community center near the Daesan Complex
- Possible to substitute over 7,000kW of energy annually; expected to save on the entire electricity cost
■ Donate to 5 welfare facilities for the class needing social consideration such as disabled residence facilities
LG Chem has stepped up to support reducing energy costs for facilities that help the class needing social consideration.
Regarding this, Chief Executive Officer Hak Cheol Shin and Daesan Labor Union Leader Hosub Song, Chief Human Resources Officer Sungmin Kim and Dong-on Kim, the resident representative of Daesan plant. attended the solar power generator donation ceremony at ‘Gieun 2-ri Community Center’ near the Daesan Complex on the 4th.
With the installation of the solar power generator, the Gieun 2-ri Community Center will be able to save on about 7,000kW of electric power annually. When considering that the annual average electric power usage per household was about 3,500kW, it appears that it would be able to substitute all electric power needs for the community center used by about 10 people with the solar power generator.
Starting with Daesan Complex, LG Chem plans to donate solar power generator equipment to five welfare facilities recommended by local governments near its business places that need energy welfare by the end of the year.
Chief Executive Officer Hak Cheol Shin said, “As a corporate citizen, we will assertively take part in community energy welfare activities to contribute to the establishment of a sustainable environment.”
Meanwhile, LG Chem labor and management has engaged in Employee 10,000 KRW Sharing to Beat COVID-19, Employee Relay Blood Drive Campaigns, and Charity Drives for Flood Victims in Special Disaster Zones, etc. as part of the ‘Green Chemi Project’, and it also plans to move forward with a variety of joint labor-management social contributions such as recycling of resources linked to the community, activities to support the class needing social consideration, etc.
