At March 31, 2022, the Group had a headcount of approximately 75,000 worldwide.
Employment type and geographical data is aligned with the FY 2021/22 Financial Annual Report.
Employee representation data includes regular employees only. Data excludes:
Consultants and vendors working through a contract agency or third-party performing services or consulting on site for a brief time and hence excluded from our scope.
Contractors who usually perform non-critical, non-core jobs and their employment decisions, including pay and benefits, are made by the third-party employer - and hence excluded from our scope.
Supplemental students who are interns or who are hired for a very short window of time and hence excluded from our scope.
Turnover rate data covers voluntary departure of regular employees for the full FY 2021/22. Involuntary turnover is planned exit of employees which is in alignment with the company strategy and decisions. Hence, as a strategic and standard practice, this is excluded from reporting.
In FY 2020/21, turnover rates by region were transposed among AP, China and EMEA. Totals did not change but were realigned with the corresponding region.
Metrics based on FY beginning with FY 2018/19. Results were not revised.
Lenovo's total contributions in responding to natural disasters is US$8,128,720.76. This amount is tracked at the geo level. In prior reporting periods, the Company reported a separate line item for global disaster response. Beginning with FY 2021/22, the disaster response total will be integrated into the respective geographic contributions.
Increase in China giving reflects tracking of Lenovo Foundation Beijing and a US$7.8M donation in response to the Henan floods.
Total giving in Latin America reflects tracking of the Motorola Brazil tax incentive program.
Total contribution in Asia Pacific includes Lenovo's commitment to the India Companies Act.
Estimated value of employee volunteer hours is calculated based off an entry level hourly wage of US$43 per hour.
Employee giving represents the corporate match from Lenovo for employees around the world, which increased in FY 2021/22 with the launch of the new Benevity platform.
Total contribution to communities for FY 2019/20 and FY 2020/21 was defined as the sum of corporate cash and product donations. In FY 2021/22 it is defined as the sum of corporate cash and product donations together with Lenovo's match of global employee donations.
Product transportation emissions include key upstream suppliers representing majority of global logistics spend. Note: Upon looking into GHG Protocol standard, we decided to re-categorize this to upstream from downstream transportation (from FY 2016/17, previous years were adjusted accordingly).
The Company is in the process of improving input data for this Scope 3 category. The data reported here is the best available estimate at the time of publication. In the FY 2022/23 ESG Report, data will be restated if needed to reflect any improved input data.
Emissions from waste include nonhazardous waste, hazardous waste and wastewater from all manufacturing, R&D locations and some large offices. No product waste is included.
Purchased goods and services include suppliers covering 94% of direct global suppliers spend. The RBA Carbon and Water Reporting Tool was used for collection of supplier data. Individual supplier data is from each supplier's most recent reporting period and not reflective of Lenovo's FY 2021/22. Data was allocated based on revenue.
The value for FY 2018/19 is being restated to correct an error that appeared in the FY 2020/21 ESG Report.
Fuel- and energy-related activities (not included in Scope 1 or 2) include transmission & distribution (T&D) losses from Lenovo's worldwide purchased electricity and natural gas. A World Bank database and Energy Star Performance Rating document were used for determining T&D loss rates.
Lenovo used the current Product Attribute Impact Algorithm (PAIA) notebook, desktop, monitor, tablet, all-in-one, thin client and server tool for calculating emissions of Lenovo's typical notebook, desktop, monitor, tablet, all-in-one, thin client and server. The calculated results show emissions distribution by different parts and also for use, packaging, transportation, and end-of-life treatment categories. The emissions associated with use and end-of-life treatment of sold products were estimated on a "narrow" baseline for the typical notebook, desktop, monitor, tablet, all-in-one, thin client and server multiplied by sold/shipped product volumes.
Emissions from capital goods are based on purchased capital goods in a given year. The 2012 Guidelines to Defra GHG Conversion Factors for Company Reporting, Annex 13 was used for emission factors for different type of capital goods adjusted for inflation rate and exchange rate.
Approximately less than 1% of purchased energy (electricity) is estimated based upon energy use at similar Lenovo facilities with metered usage.
When totals are slightly different than the exact sum of individual numbers it is due to rounding.
Brazil, Germany, Hungary, India, Japan, Mexico, United States, Chinese mainland, Taiwan, China represent manufacturing and R&D sites in these markets. "Rest of World" represents all sites managed by Lenovo's Real Estate organization (non-manufacturing) across the world (small and large - except the ones in regions listed above).
Renewable energy generation capacity includes electric solar panels in Hefei and Wuhan, China and Morrisville and Whitsett, NC, USA and Ullo, Hungary.
For FY 2021/22, All Areas includes all the Company's manufacturing, research & development, and large office sites (>100 employees). In earlier FYs, some research and development and large office locations were excluded while the Company worked to increase data coverage. Small offices (<100 employees) and retail locations are always excluded from the water reporting requirements, but a few small offices voluntarily report and are included.
All water withdrawals are estimated to be freshwater withdrawals. Due to our reliance on third-parties for the vast majority of the Company's water withdrawals, it is not possible to determine the exact parameters of all sources, but it is reasonable to assume the majority of the sources had low TDS based on local knowledge and communication with third-parties.
Areas with water stress are areas with high or extremely high baseline water stress according to World Resources Institute's Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas. Values reported for areas with water stress are a subset of values reported for all areas.
Third-party withdrawal by source was collected for all the Company's environmentally significant sites (which are the Company's ISO14001 certified locations). In FY 2021/22, these locations comprised approximately 82% of the Company's withdrawal from water stressed areas. The remaining 18% are primarily from office locations that often require less water and operate as part of a larger office complex where they may not be directly billed by the third-party responsible for withdrawals.
For more information on the wastewater exceedance that occurred in FY 2021/22, see page 25.
Water intensity metrics are based on the Company's total global headcount which includes the headcount of the excluded locations mentioned in Note 26.
Waste data includes site waste from most manufacturing, processes and operations, research & development sites, and large offices. Waste from products is reported separately.
E-waste generated at the Company's sites is also included in PELM data.
Batteries collected at Lenovo's sites are also included in the PELM data.
The Company does not operate any onsite recovery operations; all wastes are seperated onsite to be collected by third-parties for recovery offsite.
Recycling includes some composting of nonhazardous, organic wastes.
All hazardous waste diverted for recovery was diverted for recycling.
The Company does not operate any onsite disposal operations; all wastes are seperated onsite to be collected by third-parties for disposal offsite.
Lenovo's Product End-of-Life Management (PELM) and Product Take Back (PTB) includes materials from customers and Lenovo-owned country returns, manufacturing and R&D scrap, and employee equipment from real estate sites. These metrics represent all data received from PELM suppliers as of the time of publication of this report. Not all data was available at the time of publication, so actual volumes may be higher.
These metrics represent all data received from recycled plastics suppliers at the time of publication.
The CY2021 decrease in percent of notebooks can be attributed to an expanded line of gaming system notebooks that either could not meet the Energy Star requirements or Lenovo decided not to register.
The CY2021 decrease in percent of monitors was associated with an expanded line of low cost, entry-level consumer displays.
Estimated using the average packaging weight per unit and total shipping volumes for the following categories of products: notebooks, desktops, servers, workstations, monitors, smartphones, tablets, and accessories.
The value for FY 2020/21 is being restated to reflect improved shipping volumes for accessories.
