Lenovo will observe Earth Day this year. The company is looking forward to a brighter and more connected future. This is possible by continuing to use a science-based strategy to maximize conservation and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in measurable, meaningful ways.
General Manager Gulf, Lenovo, Mohammed Hilili stated: It is noteworthy that leaders have remained strong with governments in the Middle East, having affirmed support for sustainable practices. Recent developments in UAE include the launch four innovative national initiatives to ensure sustainability of water resources. A program to attract young people to participate in local and global green initiatives. The UAE also became the first Gulf country to commit to net zero emission by 2050.
The tech industry has been looking for ways to reduce their environmental impact, as they are increasingly aware of global climate change. Lenovo is committed to preserving the environment and introducing sustainable production methods to our packaging.
Lenovo is constantly improving and refining its processes to reduce our environmental impact and meet high quality standards. This helps create technologies that improve the wellbeing of citizens and push for positive society. All of these efforts are to shift Lenovo and its users away from a linear economy (make-use-dispose) to a circular economy.
Smarter IT Sustainability is Just A Click Away
Research shows that sustainability is an important purchase criterion for consumers.Lenovo has partnered with an Environmental Partner in order to offset the CO2 emissions associated to devices. Customers are then able track and verify the offset information via the serial number.
Lenovo was the first PC manufacturer to offer this type of carbon compensation service to IT industry. It developed the CO2 Offset Service to help customers meet their environmental goals. It is only one part of the company’s wider Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG), strategy and ambitions.
Reimagining Plastic Recycling
In 2020, plastic production and consumption has increased so quickly that 8.3 billion metric tonnes of mostly disposable products were created. This has resulted in an extraordinary amount waste.. Lenovo is aware of the challenges in responsibly managing e-waste but recognizes that it must immediately take decisive action.
Since 2005, Lenovo’s research & development teams have been working closely with suppliers of post-consumer material (PCC). This has allowed them to develop and validate new grades of plastic resins suitable for reuse in new Lenovo products. Lenovo has used over 110 million pounds in net recycled plastic, and 12 million pounds in closed-loop recycled content for packaging and products. 66 Lenovo products use closed-loop recycled PCC materials.
Walking the Talk
Lenovo is committed also to maximising the value of a product’s lifetime and keeping it out of landfills. Reverse supply chains allow Lenovo to reintegrate parts and products that are still useful or can be repaired or refurbished for future use. Lenovo’s product recycling programs make it easy for customers all over the world to recycle old devices, batteries, or packaging. Lenovo has recycled more than 257 766 tons of computer equipment since 2005.
Lenovo believes that as a global provider of top-quality technology solutions, it is also responsible for serving the community. Inclusion design experts ensure that products work well for everyone. The Intel Core vPro processors in Lenovo ThinkPad products are made from conflict-free minerals. By 2025, 5 million people will have been benefited by the Lenovo Foundation.
