Fujitsu Siemens Computers has launched a new 'green label' scheme in a bid to help consumers easily identify environmentally friendly products.
The label details of the energy efficiency rating of each product and its environmental impact right from being manufactured through to the end of its life, as well as its ability to be recycled. Products will be graded with between one and three stars. Lifebook and Esprimo laptops are among the products that will feature the label.
"The new Green IT label underlines our goal to be seen as leading the way amongst IT vendors in both the development of green-oriented processes and technologies, and clearly demonstrates that we are making strides in sustainable computing," said Dr Joseph Reger, Fujitsu Siemens Computers' chief technology officer.
The label will appear on products manufactured from this month onwards.
