- LG's gas dryers first to meet CSA's new Sustainability Standard for Household Clothes Dryers
- New standard is based on a lifecycle approach for identifying the environmental impacts
- It's the fourth in a series of product sustainability standards for Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers
Gas clothes dryers from LG Electronics are the first in the world to meet the requirements of CSA verification for industry’s new Sustainability Standard for Household Clothes Dryers. Building on their ENERGY STAR certification, more LG gas and electric dryers than any other brand, a total of 32 LG models, achieved the scores required to meet the new environmental standard, according to CSA Group, which verified the units following extensive testing and data analysis.
The new Dryer Sustainability Standard is based on a lifecycle approach for identifying the environmental impacts in five key areas: materials, manufacturing and operations, energy consumption during use, innovation and drying time, and end-of-life management. The standard takes a broad, multi-attribute, holistic approach to assessing the environmental impacts of dryers. The multi-attribute approach was developed using life-cycle assessment information along with other key factors influencing product environmental performance.
