HP Packaging To Carry EPA SmartWay Logo
SmartWay is a voluntary partnership between the EPA and the freight industry. The program’s goals are to lower carbon dioxide emissions by 33 million tons annually by 2012 and nitrogen oxide by 200,000 tons annually, along with additional reductions in particulate matter and air toxins.
In order to display the SmartWay logo, HP must certify its service transportation carrier network is using 100 percent SmartWay compliant carriers. The company says that additional HP products are expected to soon qualify for the logo as well.
HP says it is also reducing the environmental impact of the transport of its consumer notebook PCs, which are air shipped from China to consumers and retailers, with a pilot program using plastic shipping pallets.
