Lenovo’s new reduced-carbon transport service leverages SAF credits



To support carbon-conscious enterprise customers in their sustainability journeys, Lenovo is offering a reduced-carbon transport service, a distinct offering that gives enterprises the option to lower their carbon impact when information-technology (IT) devices are air shipped.




Through its reduced-carbon transport service, customers can purchase sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) credits and attribute the resulting emissions-reduction benefit to their IT purchase, achieving a minimum of 70 percent CO2 emissions reduction.




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




The Greenhouse Gas Protocol defines scope 3 emissions, which account for 70 percent 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 percent of organizations 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, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific have the option to add Lenovo’s reduced-carbon transport service to their device purchases.




As part of its service-led transformation, Lenovo said it 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 a CO2-offset service and asset-recovery services.




The reduced-carbon transport service is the latest offering from Lenovo’s solutions and services group (SSG), which brings together all of Lenovo’s IT solutions and services across personal computer, infrastructure and smart verticals including support, managed, project and solution-service offerings.




With a network of over 20,000 technicians across 180 markets, SSG helps customers transform their businesses on a global and local scale by delivering practical innovation to strengthen their competitive advantage.




Lenovo TruScale customers can deploy services on a “subscription” basis, using only what they need and curbing waste.
