LG’s energy efficient technologies are at the heart of the new GreenZone education center, developed for the Compton YouthBuild campus in Compton, California. Compton YouthBuild provides construction training and outreach programs for young people in the Compton community that are interested in creating a sustainable future for themselves, their families and their communities.
The GreenZone is a prefabricated 15×40-foot state-of-the-art classroom structure designed to LEED standards and created in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and Building Design + Construction magazine. It features a kitchenette, a deck, and handicap ramp access.
LG is the leading technology provider for the GreenZone. Onboard are LG’s ENERGY STAR® certified home appliances and commercial displays, super-efficient air conditioning system and LED lighting, and sustainable natural countertops composed of 93 percent quartz.
Before being relocated to the YouthBuild campus, GreenZone was on display at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo from October 5 – 7 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Greenbuild is the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building, and it brings together nearly 20,000 attendees and 600 exhibitors from the green building industry.
We are very proud to be part of the GreenZone project. Our featured products underscore LG’s commitment to leadership in developing sustainable technologies for greener buildings. In fact, LG is a 2016 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence, with numerous products on the EPEAT Registry.
William Cho, president and CEO, LG Electronics USA said it best: “The GreenZone at Greenbuild 2016 is the ideal platform to highlight how LG’s broad product portfolio – from air conditioning to appliances to LED lighting and more – helps designers and builders create more sustainable buildings. This project, which benefits Compton YouthBuild’s terrific education programs, also represents a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community.”
