Lenovo was one of over 8,400 companies to respond to the CDP survey in 2019, a nonprofit that manages a global disclosure system for organizations’ environmental impacts.
Lenovo’s response was evaluated and achieved a score of A- on the 2019 CDP climate change mitigation and performance reporting, putting it in the top 20% of reporting companies in the Electrical & Electronic Equipment activity group. An A- is within the highest Leadership level by CDP scoring criteria and methodology after Awareness, Disclosure and Management. The Leadership band translates into implementing current best practices in climate change besides being transparent about climate issues, having knowledge of impact on, and of, climate issues and taking coordinated action on climate issues.
“While it’s an honor to receive industry recognition for our leadership and commitment to mitigate the impact of climate change through our own actions and engagement with our supply chain, our focus at Lenovo is around continual improvement. We regularly monitor our progress towards our climate change and energy efficiency commitments across our operations and our products, and look for ways to improve both globally and regionally,” said John Cerretani, Vice President, Deputy General Counsel and Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer. “This includes initiatives like the installation of renewable energy projects at our sites and driving transparency in our carbon impact disclosures by reporting through CDP and publishing product carbon footprint data.”
Additionally, Lenovo received a Management level score of B- for water management and activities. This is the third year that we have disclosed our water management activities to CDP.
CDP is a global environmental impact non-profit, providing a platform for all companies and cities to report information on their climate, water and deforestation impacts. The global economy looks to CDP as the gold standard of environmental reporting, and holds the world’s richest and most comprehensive dataset on how companies and cities measure, understand and address their environmental impacts. CDP aims to make environmental reporting mainstream, providing the detailed insights and analysis to drive the urgent action needed for a climate-safe, water-secure, deforestation-free world.
