Lenovo Offers CO2 Offset for Device Purchases
Lenovo announced the expansion of its CO2 Offset Service to its consumer PC portfolio that is available initially for all Lenovo Legion and Yoga PCs, including those unveiled at this week's CES 2022. The service is part of the company’s broader Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) strategy and ambitions.
Lenovo explains the actionable steps it has taken to support reducing GHG in the atmosphere in a statement. “Having set our own science-based emissions reduction targets, Lenovo understands the importance of the global effort to mitigate climate change. The introduction of our CO2 Offset Service was always intended to support our customers in their own sustainability efforts, and we take pride in being able to now extend that support beyond the commercial space to our consumer customers, as well. It’s just another part of our bold transformation into a services and solutions provider,” says Andrej Durasinovic, Executive Director, International Consumer Services, Solutions & Services Group,
LenovoResearch shows that 50% of consumers consider sustainability an important purchase criterion and differentiator. Since launching 12-months ago, the carbon offsets from the Lenovo CO2 Offset Service have helped bring sustainable development benefits to communities, such as improving air and water quality, reducing energy consumption, and supporting safe waste disposal. Lenovo’s business customers have offset more than 500,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide across their purchases of Think PCs (desktops, workstations, laptops).
