HP to Reduce Energy Use 20 Percent by 2010
Hewlett-Packard has set a goal to reduce its global energy use by 20 percent by 2010. To accomplish this reduction below 2005 levels, HP says it will deliver energy-efficient products and services to customers and institute energy-efficient operating practices in its facilities worldwide.
HP says that recent innovations that will help HP meet the goal include:
- The introduction of select HP desktop business PCs that offer 80 percent efficient power supplies and were the first to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s new EnergyStar 4.0 requirements. The new power supplies, according to HP, are 33 percent more efficient than their predecessors;
- Dynamic Smart Cooling, HP’s energy management system for data centers, which is designed to deliver 20 to 45 percent savings in cooling energy costs; and
- Redesigned print cartridge packaging for North America that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 37 million pounds in 2007.
HP recently released its 2006 Global Citizenship Report.
