Guide to Greener Electronics - Lenovo March 2009

Publication - March 31, 2009
Lenovo climbs to 14th position despite its score dropping to 3.1points, encumbered by a penalty point imposed for backtracking on its commitment to eliminate PVC andbrominated flame retardants (BFRs) in all its products by the end of 2009. Lenovo has now moved the timeline for meeting this commitment to end of 2010.Lenovo scores well on most of the toxic chemical criteria. Although it has recently put on the market a monitor largely free of brominated flame retardants and PVC vinylplastic, this one model is insufficient to score a point. It also needs to commit to the phase out of beryllium (including alloys and compounds), antimony and its compoundsand all phthalates.
