LG's OLED TV panel receives carbon footprint certification

20 Mar 2023 | Rasmus Larsen |

LG Display claims that its OLED TV panels are significantly greener than LCD panels and that the use of plastic materials is reduced by up to 90%. It now has the certification to prove it.

LG Display's 65-inch OLED TV panel has received a Product Carbon Footprint Certification from the Carbon Trust, an internationally recognized climate consultancy, which found that the panel meets the global standard (PAS 2050) on greenhouse gas emissions throughout the entire product life cycle.

- "LG Display's self-emissive OLED TV panel requires no backlight, which allows the panel to significantly reduce the use of plastic materials by up to 90% compared to LCD panels and to improve recycling rate to 92.7% by raising the use of iron and metal materials," the company added.

LCD panels are found in all flat panel TVs today that are not OLED TVs.

LG Display's OLED has previously received an Eco Product Certification from SGS (Société Générale de Surveillance).

LG Display used the opportunity to emphasize that its new MLA (Micro Lens Array) OLED panel, which can be found in LG G3, Philips OLED908 and Panasonic MZ2000 this year, is 22% more energy efficient compared to the 2022 OLED TV panel, leading to overall lower energy consumption for mixed use and higher peak brightness potential. Samsung Display has likewise touted the energy efficiency improvements in its 2023 QD-OLED panel to reduce power consumption and enable higher brightness levels.
