- An exemption from targets in this area may be requested where the BU can clearly demonstrate achieving the target places the Lenovo product at a large price disadvantage against its competition or is not technically feasible.
- For products for which a PAIA tool exists.
- For general purpose products. Hyperscale products have exemption.
- Availability of PCC plastics can be determined through consultation with environmental affairs and/or suppliers on the Lenovo Approved PCC Supplier list.
- To drive increased usage of PCC all BUs shall include a requirement for the identification of applications for the use of PCC in MRD and RFI/RFQ. PCC shall be used when technical specifications and cost parity are met.
- PCC percentage is calculated using EPEAT methodology.
- If product not being registered to EPEAT, PM2 is N/A. If product is being registered to EPEAT, exemptions allowed per EPEAT requirements.
- Optional for servers and phones.
- These goals may be accomplished through energy efficiency, installation of onsite renewable generation, entry into power purchase agreements (PPA) with power providers, and/or the purchase of renewable energy credits and carbon offsets.
- This goal may be accomplished through, installation of onsite renewable energy generation, entry into power purchase agreements (PPA) with power providers and/or the purchase of renewable energy credits.
- Energy intensity index is energy consumption in kWh per production volume.
