Lenovo takes immense pride in its distinction as an EPEAT® Climate+™ Champion, having registered over 400 products on the very first day of Climate+ eligibility.

The Global Electronics Council (GEC) administers EPEAT, the world's leading ecolabel for electronics and technology products.

On October 3rd, GEC introduced the first wave of EPEAT Climate+ designated products. This novel designation, known as Climate+, spotlights products that have been meticulously crafted with a climate-centric approach, facilitating enhanced transparency, goal establishment, and tangible corporate actions for supply chain decarbonisation.

Lenovo's array of products encompassing desktops, servers, workstations, notebooks, and tablets, adorned with the Climate+ designation, have undergone a stringent, science-based evaluation according to EPEAT criteria pertaining to climate change mitigation.

The assessment includes stringent benchmarks related to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, utilisation of renewable energy sources, and compliance with energy efficiency standards.

The Climate+ label augments Lenovo's existing achievements in meeting EPEAT criteria relating to circularity, reduced use of hazardous chemicals, and corporate Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance.

Mary Jacques, the Executive Director of Global ESG and Regulatory Compliance at Lenovo, emphasises the pivotal role of innovation in their product and service design process in ushering in a more sustainable future.

She states, "We take immense pride in being acknowledged as an EPEAT Climate+ Champion and remain committed to thinking innovatively, collaborating, and continually pushing the boundaries of what's attainable in our products and services."

Lenovo's dedication to reducing its carbon footprint extends over a decade, and the company continually pioneers smarter technologies that contribute to a brighter future.

In January 2023, Lenovo publicly announced its net-zero aspirations for 2050, a commitment validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

This achievement cemented Lenovo's position as the first PC and smartphone manufacturer with SBTi-validated targets. Furthermore, Lenovo has set ambitious goals to enhance product energy efficiency, targeting a 50% reduction for servers and desktops and a 30% reduction for laptops and mobile devices by 2030, relative to measurements from FY 2018/19.
