Former LG Chairman Bon-moo Koo once said, "LG will reward people who sacrifice themselves for the nation and social justice as part of their social responsibility activities". Based on this philosophy, LG established the LG Righteous Person Award in 2015 and has been recognizing righteous citizens and upholding them as role models of society ever since.

LG Hope Community in Ethiopia
LG has been running the 'LG Hope Community' since 2012 to increase agricultural productivity in Ethiopia. By building the infrastructure—such as wells, solar energy, and model farms—required to improve agricultural productivity, and by implementing increased income plans through education–such as for gardening/chicken farming and mill operation—LG is helping local Ethiopians build a self-supporting economy. LG is also providing financial support for war veterans in Ethiopia and scholarships for their descendants.
