HP Announces Plan to Cut Emissions
Hewlett Packard has announced a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its operating facilities worldwide, promote best practices, and use HP technology in conservation efforts around the world.
By 2010, HP says it will reduce carbon dioxide emissions from HP-owned and HP-leased facilities worldwide to 15 percent below their 2006 levels. Working with the World Wildlife Fund, HP will identify the best technology and practices to reduce energy use. HP will also continue to purchase cost-effective renewable energy.
HP says it will also:
1. Report and verify carbon dioxide emissions from its facilities, based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and the World Economic Forum’s Global Greenhouse Gas Registry.
2. Develop energy efficiency measurements for its product categories. Based on those metrics, HP will work with WWF-US to develop goals for improved product performance and report publicly on progress toward those goals.
3. Promote educational efforts to address climate change with key stakeholders and highlight best practices adopted by consumers and businesses.
4. Us HP technology to advance the science and practice of adapting and becoming resilient to climate change. An initial project involves funding from HP to study the effects of climate change on the wildlife and habitats of North America’s Bering Sea.
