From designing and producing their products, to having a recycling program for unwanted devices, Lenovo has developed and implemented industry-leading practices to promote and uphold positive environmental change.
At Moncrieff, we also firmly believe in the importance of conducting business sustainably to ensure the preservation of natural resources for our future generations. That’s why we’ve partnered with Lenovo to provide businesses with high-quality, highly secure, and innovative products and services. With help from Moncrieff and Lenovo, your business can cater to the growing number of environmentally conscious consumers who are demanding sustainable business practices, while also investing in the future.
Lenovo has introduced a CO2 Offset Service which makes it more convenient than ever for your business to reduce technology-affiliated emissions. Lenovo, through its range of CO2 Offset partners such as ClimeCo, allows the carbon offset cost of production, shipment, and average lifecycle of eligible devices to be paid upon ordering to help fund a range of sustainable projects.
One of the many issues that arises from the use of digital technology is the negative health effects that it has on users. Lenovo’s digital wellness features, which are available on a range of eligible devices, help to reduce this impact on your employees to help improve their engagement and productivity. Lenovo’s products deliver this by providing alerts such as posture check, which reminds users to sit up straight when they are hunched towards the screen, and a 20/20/20 alert which reminds users to look away from the device’s screen for 20 seconds every 20 minutes, to avoid eye strain.
For any business utilising digital technology as part of their everyday operations, there is a risk of cyber-attacks and compromises by parties attempting to gain your confidential data and information. Having a protective cyber security system is crucial in minimising, or even completely avoiding, such attacks on your assets to ensure smooth continuity of business procedures. This indirectly relates to sustainability as, should a business have to spend funds on reversing the effects of cyber-attacks such as replacing software, hardware, and data. They’re also likely to spend less on operating sustainably and will opt for cheaper, traditional methods.
Lenovo’s ThinkShield, a portfolio of security tools, helps provide the security required by businesses through aids such as human presence awareness, which recognises an individual leaving their device and locks it, and self-healing BIOS which restores devices to a previously backed-up state should the device become corrupt or maliciously attacked.
