Lenovo Unveils LISSA: AI Engine Empowers Sustainable IT Decisions

Lenovo is revolutionizing sustainable IT purchasing with the launch of its new AI-powered tool, the Lenovo Intelligent Sustainability Solutions Advisor (LISSA). This innovative engine empowers businesses to make data-driven choices that minimize their environmental impact.

LISSA goes beyond basic information, providing customers with actionable insights into the estimated emissions impact of their entire IT lifecycle. This includes factors like hardware selection, usage, disposal, and everything in between. Armed with this knowledge, companies can make informed decisions about their IT solutions, aligning them with their unique sustainability goals.

The power of Generative AI fuels LISSA, offering in-depth analysis of various Lenovo sustainability solutions. These solutions encompass TruScale Device as a Service (DaaS), Asset Recovery programs, eco-friendly packaging, reduced-emission shipping options, lifecycle extensions, certified refurbishment, and more.

But LISSA doesn’t stop there. It delves deeper, simulating multiple solution pathways. This allows businesses to identify potential emissions reduction opportunities that directly support their IT decarbonization goals within the digital workplace.

This move underscores Lenovo’s commitment to sustainability. Recent surveys reveal that 87% of executives believe AI can play a crucial role in combating climate change. By enabling faster access to IT sustainability insights and AI-powered recommendations, Lenovo empowers businesses to develop clear IT decarbonization pathways with measurable results.

“Sustainability is a top priority for businesses today,” says Claudia Contreras, Executive Director of Global Sustainability Services for Lenovo. “LISSA equips our customers with the data and AI-powered guidance they need to make informed IT purchasing decisions. By prioritizing sustainability factors, we help unlock emission reduction opportunities and enable customers to leverage IT solutions that drive their sustainability goals.”

Reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 is a core commitment for Lenovo, with science-based targets validated by the SBTi Net-Zero Standard. LISSA further strengthens this commitment by empowering customers to make data-driven, sustainable IT choices that deliver measurable progress.

“There’s no one-size-fits-all approach,” explains Contreras. “Every business has a unique sustainability journey, and data is crucial to measure progress. LISSA empowers customers with data-led insights to make real progress. AI recommendations and data intelligence enable businesses to plan and optimize IT investments with sustainability in mind. No matter the size, Lenovo helps organizations compare solutions, design end-to-end IT strategies that fit budget and computing needs, while supporting sustainability goals.”

With LISSA, Lenovo is leading the way towards a more sustainable future for IT.
