Lenovo uses recycled plastics to lead the global trend of personal computers

in the past World Earth Day, Lenovo Group released information to share our measures and achievements in green and environmental protection

Lenovo Group leads the global trend of green computing in the personal computer industry due to the fact that China's plastic machinery enterprises have increased the cost of opening up emerging markets for extruders in recent years. Lenovo's products contain more recycled materials from consumer waste plastics than its competitors' products, making them the most environmentally friendly personal computers and displays in the market today. In 2008, Lenovo used more than 2.2 million pounds of recycled plastic from consumer waste plastics in personal computer products

reuse of materials

epeat (electronic product environmental impact assessment tool) analyzes a wide range of environmental attributes of electronic products, including the content of recycled materials generated from consumer waste plastics used. Recycled materials generated from waste plastics for consumption refer to plastics extracted from items once used by consumers, such as mineral water bottles, personal computers and televisions. Dunhuang in Gansu is the location of the world cultural heritage Mogao Grottoes. According to EPEAT data, Lenovo obtained the largest number of EPEAT gold rated products, with a total of 69, of which the content of recycled materials is the highest. For example, some models of Lenovo ThinkCentre desktop computers use recycled polymer generated from consumer waste plastics, which is as high as 27%, much higher than the 15% content of other PC manufacturers' products. Lenovo's thinkstation D20 workstation uses nearly 30% of the recycled materials generated from consumer waste plastics, equivalent to 19 plastic mineral water bottles

epeat system specially rewards the use of recycled materials generated from waste plastics for consumption, because reusing recycled materials can produce more environmental benefits than using industrial processing materials. BASF will cooperate with Jilin Province, Changchun City and Economic Development Zone in two aspects, said Jeff omelchuck, executive director of EPEAT. As World Earth Day approaches, we congratulate Lenovo on its positive efforts. They use an unprecedented proportion of recycled materials generated from consumer waste plastics, setting a new benchmark for the industry

reduce the impact of materials

Lenovo paved the way for energy-saving computing through a series of green display products, including thinkvision l2440x wide screen display, which has an LED backlight display, which consumes less power than traditional displays. The content of recycled materials generated from waste plastics for consumption is 30%, and the halogen content is low. Lenovo also offers a ThinkPad T400 laptop with low halogen content, which uses some low halogen components, such as touch pad, camera and keyboard

because personal computers and monitors are a major source of energy consumption in office and home environments, more than 25 PC products provided by Lenovo meet the energy star 5.0 standard. These products include ThinkPad T400, X301 and W700ds laptops, as well as some ThinkCentre m58 and m58p eco desktops. In June, 2008, Lenovo became the first PC manufacturer to provide a full range of thinkvision displays that reached EPEAT gold level; In January, 2009, all Lenovo thinkvision displays met the energy star 5.0 standard, nine months ahead of the effective time of this display standard in October, 2009. Lenovo display adopts a special reflective polarizer technology to help use most of the light that will be lost in general LCD displays, so as to achieve sufficient brightness while using less energy. If energy-saving displays can now be widely used all over the world, the electricity saved by 2011 may be used by about 5.33 million households

we constantly strive to improve our qualifications in environmental protection, so as to reduce the impact of our products and our business on the planet. Said Ms. Fran o Sullivan, senior vice president of Lenovo Group and President of think products group. By focusing on how our products are manufactured, how energy efficient they are, and what recycling methods are available at the end of the product life cycle, our customers can make better choices for their families, their businesses, or their environment

Lenovo is trying to reduce the consumption of packaging materials by more than 750 tons per year. As part of this plan, Lenovo uses up to 100% recycled cushioning materials in the packaging of certain styles of ThinkPad notebooks, ThinkCentre desktops and thinkvision displays. In addition, Lenovo is currently changing the packaging of the computer on the ideapad s10e to a smaller packaging box with smaller padding to reduce the packaging waste generated

when delivering notebooks or desktop computers in large quantities to customers such as universities and large enterprises, Lenovo also adopts the form of bulk packaging, without any cost to customers. In the case of bulk packaging, each PC can save more than 4 pounds of material. Therefore, if 5000 ThinkCentre desktop computers are deployed, nearly 22000 pounds of materials may be saved, so the reduced packaging waste is considerable. In order to help customers make greener personal computer choices, Lenovo launched an e-coupon program in the United States. When a customer redeems a specific electronic coupon, Lenovo will donate to a renewable energy project in the state where the data line shielding processing buyer is located, and the donation amount is equivalent to the one-year electricity cost of a laptop

reward product recycling

Lenovo strives to help customers recycle personal computers that they don't want and have reached the end of product life. The Lenovo eco recycling program enables consumers to recycle any Lenovo or IBM product free of charge and get a refund from the recycling of any brand of personal computers with residual value. For commercial customers, Lenovo provides asset recovery services (ARS), including computer recycling, data destruction, product renovation and recycling
