Lenovo Continues CO2 Offsets
Lenovo’s customers have offset more than 1 million metric tons of carbon dioxide from their purchases of Think PCs (desktops, workstations, laptops). This is the equivalent of GHG gases emitted from more than 215,000 passenger vehicles driven over the course of one year. The company also announced that enterprises can now add Lenovo CO2 offsets to their purchase of select Lenovo ThinkSystem servers.
“While our end goal should always be reducing our environmental impact, carbon offsets – leveraged responsibly and independently accredited – is a powerful tool to drive additional and very needed support towards climate action. This milestone that we celebrate today, and the extension of CO2 offset services to our server portfolio, highlights the focus and vigor of our efforts to enlist our clients in the fight against climate change. As part of our transformation journey from PC-provider to full-spectrum services provider, we intend to continue delivering solutions that help our clients meet their own sustainability goals,” said Claudia Contreras, Executive Director of Global Sustainability Services at Lenovo, in a statement.
Since its launch in 2021, the take-up rate of Lenovo’s CO2 Offset Services has been on the rise, with the amount of carbon offset by customers increasing by double-digits quarter-on-quarter.
