As the first electronics manufacturer, Lenovo receives DEKRA certification for the company’s climate program, which in two years has led to the equalization of over 350,000 tons of CO2.
As the demand for environmentally conscious products and services increases, Lenovo can now announce that the company as the first electronics manufacturer has received a DEKRA-certification.
The company receives the certification for its Lenovo CO2 Offset Service-program.
Lenovo’s climate program started as a Nordic pilot project in 2019, but has since been rolled out to the rest of the world. The program helps companies calculate the CO2 emissions associated with purchasing new hardware. The service highlights the climate impact of individual products over a five-year period and allows customers to offset the products’ CO2 footprint through support for selected, green UN-approved projects from around the world.
The compensation is based on a number of calculations of each model’s CO2 footprint, and it is these calculations that have been assessed in depth and are now certified by DEKRA to be accurate and correct.
“Getting an internationally recognized certification from DEKRA is crucial for a program like this, as our customers must be able to rely on our CO2 calculations and ultimately add the compensation to their own sustainability goals. By acting as a trusted partner, our goal is to make sustainability more tangible, transparent and traceable for companies around the world, ”said John Stamer, Vice President of International Commercial Services at Lenovo Solutions & Services Group.
Since the program’s launch 18 months ago, Lenovo’s customers have offset the CO2 footprint by 356,411 tons by purchasing Lenovo’s PCs, desktops, workstations, notebooks, monitors and tablets. This corresponds to the annual emission of greenhouse gases from 77,000 passenger cars.
At DEKRA, we perform objective third-party audits and assessments to verify the degree of sustainability of various organizations. Lenovo’s CO2 Offset Service program provided us with a unique opportunity to evaluate a process that helps support other companies’ sustainability efforts. We hope that the certification will help increase confidence in the program, ”said Roman Zadrozny, Executive Vice President DEKRA Group, Head of Service Division Audit.
