Each month, LonMark International features a company, organization or individual committed to the development, manufacture and use of open, multi-vendor control systems utilizing ISO/IEC 14908-1 and related standards.

LG Electronics, the symbol of a global lifestyle, Making a better tomorrow for the world. LG's unique high-tech air conditioning technology upgrades your lifestyle, bringing the high-tech lifestyle of the future closer to you. Many of LG Electronics' products now come complete with an eco-declaration - a label containing all of the product's relevant environmental information, including its weight, energy consumption, packaging materials, recyclability and customer precautions. LG adopted this eco-declaration system in a bid to actively promote eco-products. The company has also developed its own eco-label, and established its own strict environmental standards, which reflect customers' demands for the company to become more environmentally aware. All products that have met the required criteria acquire a label of their own to prove that they are indeed eco-products. Customers can easily identify eco-products with LG's eco-label.
