LG Electronics has been named Manufacturer of the Year HVAC–heating ventilation and air conditioning.
The company took home the award during the 2016 Energy Star Canada Awards ceremony, last week. Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, Jim Carr, handed over the award to Sonny Hong, LG Electronics Canada’s senior product manager for Air Conditioning and Energy Solutions.
Award winners are selected based on innovations done in terms of energy efficiency, including the incorporation of Energy Star-certified products in major social housing developments.
The idea is to encourage energy conservation through consumer incentive programs and promotional campaigns to sell and promote innovative energy-efficient homes, products and appliances.
