HP Pledges To Cut Emissions
HP officials have pledged to reduce emissions from operations and the use of its products by six million tons below 2005 levels by 2010. The announcement, made at the Climate Savers summit held this week in Tokyo, also included a commitment to reduce energy consumption by 15 percent in its operations from 2005 levels, while achieving a 25 percent reduction in the energy used by its products and operations combined below 2005 levels by 2010.
During the summit, HP said it will sign the Tokyo Declaration – a call to action and renewed commitment on global warming.
In 2007, HP announced it would reduce energy use from its products and operations by 20 percent over 2005 levels by the end of 2010. But by the end of October 2007, HP had already reached a 19.2 percent reduction, leading the company to increase the goal to 25 percent.
Last month at CES, HP made a similar announcement concerning its commitment to cut energy consumption across its entire lineup of volume desktop and notebook PCs 25 percent by 2010.
