communities, and our planet
Committed to creating value that lasts
At Lenovo, we understand the decisions we make today will impact future generations. That’s why we’re designing our solutions to last longer, be more energy efficient, and help our customers reach their own sustainability goals.
We have a vision to reach net-zero by 2050, and we’re working with the Science Based Targets initiative to establish goals that support this vision. Read our report for full details of our progress and ambitious sustainability targets.
“We believe innovation must serve the purpose of a better life for humanity — more inclusive, more environmentally friendly, and constantly changing for good.”

Elements of our ESG evolution
These are just a few of the steps we’ve taken towards making our goals a reality.
We continually make our packaging more sustainable through recycled materials and elimination of plastic. Our bio-based packaging is 100% renewable and biodegradable. It’s also lighter, so it reduces emissions during transportation. We’re using recycled materials and have cut out the need for plastic tape.
Lenovo has set a vision to achieve net-zero by 2050. We’re working with the Science Based Targets initiative to establish goals that support this vision. By 2025, we aim for 90% of electricity for our global operations to come from renewable sources, and we will eliminate 1 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions from our supply chain.
We integrate recycled materials into our products and packaging to minimize waste and use of virgin materials during production and lifecycle. In 2021 alone, Lenovo integrated more than 13.5 million kgs of recycled plastic into its products. By 2025, we intend for 100% of our PC products to contain post-consumer recycled content.
We’re embracing a circular model of “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” through our supply chains, product design, materials, and services. Our products are made to be repaired on premises when needed, and when it’s time to refresh your devices, we’ll reclaim your hardware to extract even more value from the component materials.
We believe in creating smarter technology for all. Our products are vetted by inclusive design experts to ensure they work for everyone, regardless of physical attributes or abilities. Meanwhile, the Lenovo Foundation is empowering communities around the world with access to technology and education, impacting millions with strategic investments, volunteerism and disaster response.
