HP Sets Carbon Reduction Goals

HP announced a goal to reduce the emissions intensity of its product portfolio by 40 percent by 2020 compared to 2010 levels.  The carbon reduction goals apply to all three parts of its value chain—operations, supply chain and product portfolio.

“As one of the world’s largest IT companies, we believe we are uniquely positioned to help our company and our customers lower carbon emissions by developing more sustainable technologies that replace outdated, inefficient processes and behaviors,” said Gabi Zedlmayer, vice president and chief progress officer, Corporate Affairs, HP. “With this new emissions goal, we are once again demonstrating our commitment to building a low-carbon economy that creates a better future and a healthier world for generations to come.”

The company cited its work in improving data center efficiencies by developing energy-efficient solutions such as the HP Moonshot server architecture, which consumes up to 89 percent less energy, uses 80 percent less space and costs 77 percent less than a traditional server environment.
