Lenovo had some problems with Greenpeace in the past, but it seems that they learned their lesson well. UL announced that it has issued its first-ever Gold level Sustainable Product Certification for the laptop category to the Lenovo ThinkPad T420, scheduled to be launched later this year. This UL Environmental SPC Gold certification indicates a product has met the most stringent and prestigious of three levels of compliance in the industry-wide sustainability standard for laptops, IEEE 1680.1.
UL Environment tested the ThinkPad T420 to IEEE 1680.1 criteria including reduction or elimination of environmentally sensitive materials in product and packaging, energy conservation, end-of-life management and corporate environmental practices.
I’m waiting for my T420s. You know, the thinner, lighter, faster edition…
