CO2 Offset

Simplifying carbon offset for business growth

Lenovo’s CO2 Offset Service makes offsetting carbon emissions simple, and within your control

Offset your emissions at point of purchase

Lenovo’s CO2 Offset Service is one of the first of its kind in the technology industry. We make it easier for businesses to offset the carbon emissions associated with each Lenovo Think device, by providing the option at point of purchase.

We’ve calculated the cost of carbon emissions for all Lenovo Think devices over an average lifecycle of up to 5 years, including manufacture, shipping and usage. Offsetting those emissions can now simply be considered part of your hardware configuration.

Making Lenovo green from the start

It’s one thing to offset your carbon footprint. It’s another to keep it low from the start.

Lenovo is a leader in sustainable packaging, using bio-based material to reduce the plastic and carbon footprint of new technology. These materials are light too, which reduces CO2 emissions during shipping.

By 2025, we will have removed 1,000,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions from our supply chain and 90% of our global operations will run on renewable energy. That’s just the start.
