IN RECOGNITION OF UNITED NATIONS WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAYEnglewood Cliffs, N.J. – June 19, 2018 – Scores of employees from LG Electronics in Englewood Cliffs commemorated UN World Environment Day with the Palisades Interstate Park Commission along the Englewood Cliffs Boat Basin area. Employees cleaned and maintained trails from the foot of the Boat Basin to the top of the cliffs, in fact the team helped to repair a failing stone wall.
The activities align with LG’s core mission of fostering environmental responsibility and giving back to the community we all share.
World Environment Day, which takes place in June every year, is the United Nations' most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of the environment. LG employees around the world participated in thousands of person-hours of volunteer activities giving back to local communities to show solidarity with the goals of UN World Environment Day, celebrated every June since 2010.
