Lenovo is partnering with A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) to utilise the carrier’s ECO Delivery solutions to reduce emissions.
In addition to its own 2030 science-based targets, Lenovo has set a goal to remove 1 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions from its supply chain by Fiscal Year 2025/26.
By partnering with Maersk’s ECO Delivery solutions for ocean freight shipments, Lenovo said it will further reduce its carbon footprint in transportation.
Customer demand for Maersk ECO Delivery has grown more than 170 per cent year-on-year since its introduction in 2019.
The product is an ocean transport offering that uses second generation green biofuels, which reduce CO2 emissions by more than 80 per cent.
In 2021, Maersk biofuel consumption was up 156 per cent mainly driven by ECO Delivery.
In 2022, ECO Delivery will expand to third-party verified emission-reduced logistics and services products to serve customers across the value chain.
Gareth Davies, Head of Global Logistics, Lenovo, commented: “Lenovo is fully committed to its role in helping mitigate the impact of climate change and is taking direct action with regards to how we manage services and transport solutions globally, in addition to innovative product design and the use of sustainable materials in manufacturing.
“We are delighted to further develop these solutions through this collaboration with Maersk. By combining our efforts with a leading supply chain partner as focused on sustainability as we are, it enables us to further reduce our carbon emissions.
Caroline Wu, Managing Director of Maersk Greater China, added: “We are happy to provide sustainable ocean solutions for Lenovo to further decarbonise their supply chain.
“Lenovo has become the first technology industry exporter in China to opt for Maersk’s low emission ECO Delivery product, and we expect the growth in sales to continue in the coming years, as customers seek to execute on strengthened sustainability targets.
