Lenovo’s nine ThinkVision monitors are now EPEAT Gold qualified, making Lenovo the only computer manufacturer to offer such a distinction.
EPEAT, or “Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool,” is one of the most highly sought environmental designations in the tech industry.
EPEAT’s “Gold” designation means that the manufacturer has risen to the organization’s highest plateau of environmentally responsible efforts.
The new Lenovo monitors designated EPEAT Gold qualified are: ThinkVision L151, L171, L171P, L194 Wide, L190X, L220X Wide, L174 and L197 Wide. They join ThinkVision monitor L193P, which became EPEAT Gold qualified in October 2007.
Moreover, the ThinkVision L174 and L197 Wide introduced new technology to reduce power consumption. Lenovo engineers were able to accomplish this by reducing the number of bulbs used in the system from four to two, while adding new brightness enhancement films to ensure greater operating performance.
“Lenovo is leading the way in the current wave of environmental display improvements with the introduction of a full lineup of EPEAT Gold monitors, as well as more energy efficient 17 and 19 inch mainstream displays,” Tom Shell, vice president, global visuals business unit in a press release said.
