Lenovo a Go-Go

Lenovo, that computer manufacturer that you have barely heard of but manufactures millions of systems per year, just had 42 of their products certified by ePEAT. These includes some of their ThinkPads, their ThinkCentre desktops, and several monitors. Many of these products received the silver rating.

For those not in the know, ePEAT is an EPA approved standard for rating computer equipment based on their environmental attributes. It was developed over three years with participation from stakeholders in both the public and private sectors. This is in stark contrast to the hypey, self created Greenpeace scorecard that gave Lenovo one of the worst rankings. Way to go, Lenovo.
