With Lenovo it's easy to be green
Consider Lenovo’s computing products as the fastest, easiest way to “go green,” slash energy bills and protect the planet. Our entire product portfolio contains more recycled plastics than comparable computing devices. For example, ThinkPad L Series notebooks contain 85% recycled plastic content and ThinkVision® L2251x wide monitors combine 65% post-consumer recycled plastic with 20% post-industrial content.
We’ve also optimized our packaging process and carved out 2 kgs of packaging material from each PC shipment. In addition, by bulk shipping our products to you, we minimize waste packaging at your site. Deploy 5,000 Lenovo desktops and you’ve prevented 10,000 kgs of packaging material from ending up in the landfill!
Lenovo’s Commitment to the Environment Infuses Everything we do.
Lenovo products have earned the ENERGY STAR ® 5.0 rating. That means you can expect to cut your computing energy bill by as much as 60%. For example, Lenovo’s ThinkStation workstations deliver an 86% or higher increase in power supply efficiency as measured by EPEAT (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool), a voluntary environmental performance standard. Lenovo’s ThinkServer™ systems conserve energy without sacrificing performance. These powerful servers consume 80% less power while achieving up to 11 times the performance of a single core processor system.
Cradle-to-Grave Concern for the Environment
We’ve created a suite of tools to help you minimize your computing energy consumption – without sacrificing performance.
Consider the energy and cost savings you can achieve by:
- Using Lenovo’s Power Manager to centrally control computing energy consumption campus-wide. You could cut energy use by as much as 69% on every desktop, every year.
- Lowering LCD brightness during start up, shut down, log off, screen lock and screensaver modes to extend battery life.
- Remotely deploying global power schemes and settings to boost energy-savings across campuses.
- Matching processor and fan speeds to ambient noise levels via Active Thermal Management.
When Lenovo products enter end-of-life, our green commitment continues through Asset Recovery Services. You ship your devices directly to Lenovo for secure data destruction, recycling and a cash-back credit for your next Lenovo purchase. Lenovo computing products — greener than anything else out there.
