How does a global technology leader make progress toward that “Mars shot” of net-zero emissions?
In this video series, we aim to demonstrate how Lenovo is taking action and measuring progress toward net-zero emissions through sustainable product design, conserving natural resources, and increasing sustainability in our supply chain.
Lenovo is proud to be working with Science Based Targets initiative to establish goals that support our vision to reach net-zero by 2050. We’re looking across all of our opportunities – from product design and use of natural resources to measuring emissions in our supply chain – for ways to improve and share as we innovate on our journey to net-zero.
In our third video of the series, Mengdi Wang, Senior Sustainability Management Specialist, welcomes two colleagues from Lenovo’s supply chain and logistics: Dustin Deal and Golden Xing, to understand Lenovo’s efforts to reduce our scope 3 emissions in our supply chain and logistics and how this will help us on our journey to net-zero emissions.
Here are the main highlights:
- Measurement and collaboration: Lenovo has set a target to achieve 25% emissions intensity reduction in its value chain by 2030. However, scope 3 emissions are the hardest emissions to measure. Lenovo is partnering with CDP and its Supply Chain Program to change the cultural mindset of its suppliers along the value chain and take joint efforts to achieve net-zero. Lenovo is also launching a supplier emissions mitigation program asking suppliers to reduce emissions by setting science-based targets.
- Harnessing Innovative Solutions: Innovation is at the heart of Lenovo’s strategy to reduce scope 3 emissions along the value chain. Partnering with Maersk on ocean freights or DB Schenker and Lufthansa Cargo to fly products using sustainable aviation fuel are just two of the latest examples. Lenovo is also a founding member for Smart Freight Alliance China allowing the company to collaborate on sustainable logistics and share best practices within the industry.
- Building for Sustainability: Lenovo’s new manufacturing facility in Hungary is a well-connected location that brings Lenovo closer to its European customers. While closing the distance, the factory also provides more efficient and sustainable transportation options to deliver products to Lenovo customers.
