Lenovo introduces low emissions delivery option

Lenovo is offering a 'reduced carbon transport' service, giving organisations the option to lower carbon emissions on IT device air shipments. Customers are able to purchase sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) credits and attribute the resulting emissions reduction benefit to their IT purchase, achieving a minimum of 70% CO2 emissions reduction.1

A cleaner substitute for conventional jet fuel, SAF has potential in reducing CO2 emissions from airfreight transportation and enables organisations to realise targets for Scope 3 emissions.

The Greenhouse Gas Protocol defines Scope 3 emissions — which account for 70% of the average corporate total emissions — as those that occur outside a company’s walls, including emissions tied to the purchase and disposal of products. While less than 10% of organisations accurately measure their Scope 3 emissions, Lenovo’s Reduced Carbon Transport Service provides customers a tangible way to reduce emissions from airfreight. Customers receive a confirmation of emissions reduction that can be used for reporting against their own Scope 3 targets, ensuring greater transparency throughout the process.

“We’re embedding sustainability deeper into the technology value chain with innovations like Reduced Carbon Transport so that customers have a pathway to more sustainable IT decision-making,” said Claudia Contreras, Executive Director of Global Sustainability Services for Lenovo.

“At Lenovo, we are committed to more than just our own net zero vision. Net zero is achieved through a collection of sustainable choices. We are happy to be the trusted business partner and solution provider that helps customers achieve both digital transformation and sustainability success.”

Enterprise customers across North America, EMEA and Asia Pacific have the option to add Reduced Carbon Transport Service to their device purchases. As part of its service-led transformation, Lenovo continues to innovate by delivering solutions that help customers meet their own sustainability goals. In addition to its new Reduced Carbon Transport Service, Lenovo is enabling customers to meet their climate action goals and implement more circular and responsible IT practices with several sustainability-focused services including Lenovo CO2 Offset Service and Asset Recovery Services.

1 Approximate percentage LCA GHG reduction versus fossil jet based on feedstock used in SAF such as waste and residue lipids, oilseed bearing trees on low-ILUC degraded land or as a rotational oil cover crops. Indirect CO2 emissions reduction benefit is obtained through the purchase of Sustainable Aviation Fuel credits.
