  • CERTIFICATIONSLenovo is the first brand to announce a full line-up of ENERgy STAR 5.0 compliant PCs. Whats more, the Lenovo monitors are 38% more efficient than the required ENERGY STAR criteria.

    Lenovo is leading the industry by providing a mercury-free, low halogen monitor as well as the first 19" wide 2CCFL vESA standard adoption.

    Lenovo was the first manufacturer to deliver an EPEAT Gold rated monitor and now has a full lineup of EPEAT Gold commercial monitors.

    Lenovos ThinkVision L2251x wide monitor with zero virgin plastics was certified as the worlds first TCO Certified EDGE monitor in October 2009.

    In 2011 Lenovo became the first computer manufacturer to obtain UL Environments Sustainable Products Certification to the Gold level for the IEEE 1680.1 standard for criterias such as energy efficiency, design for recycling and material usage. Since obtaining this industry first, Lenovo has gone on to certify with ULE several additional models of ThinkPad laptops as well as Lenovos full lineup of ThinkVision monitors.

    Lenovo has introduced low halogen products in several product families. At the commodity level, many models of Lenovo ThinkPad laptops contained hard disk drives, optical disk drives, solid state drives, LCD screens, memory, CPUs, chipsets, and several communication cards that met the iNEMI definition of low halogen. At the product level, Lenovo introduced its first low halogen product, the ThinkVision L2440x wide monitor, and followed this product with the ThinkVision L2251x wide monitor. In late 2010, Lenovo introduced the low halogen ThinkCentre M90p desktop. In 2011, all ThinkPad laptops have been released with low halogen PCBs.

    Lenovo have partnered with Tv Rheinland, to certify the new ThinkCentre M92z and ThinkVision LT2323z under the Green Product Mark. Green Mark verifies that electronic products like the ThinkCentre M92z meet the best in class parameters for energy efficiency, toxic components, recycled material use and product carbon footprint.

    gREENgUARD certificates are awarded by the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute for contribution towards improving public health and quality of life through improvement of indoor air. Performance-based standards are incorporated in the selection criteria for products with low chemical and particle emissions.

    Lenovo leads in the Nordics with most products registered with Nordic Ecolabel 60 products including the first registered tablet. The Nordic Ecolabel enables consumers and businesses to easily select products that are developed using sustainable production methods, and therefore have less environmental impact.

    Lenovo is recognised as an industry leader in using PCC and designing environmentallysustainable products. Lenovos use of post-consumer recycled content and plastic in its products exceeds 61 million pounds since early 2005. Lenovo is committed to incorporate some amount of PCC into every PC product and continuously increase use of PCC in each product family.
