HP Sets Goal of 40% Energy Reduction for Products by 2011
HP has raised its goal for reducing energy consumption and related greenhouse gas emissions from its products. The new goal calls for a 40 percent reduction by 2011, compared to 2005 levels.
The company already had set – and met- a goal of a 25 percent reduction by 2010, according to a press release.
In addition to the new goal for its products, HP plans by 2013 to reduce absolute emissions from all its operations by 20 percent, compared to a 2005 baseline. The emissions reductions will come from energy efficiency measures, as well as investments in renewable energy.
Between 2005 and 2008, the company has reduced emissions by more than 4 million metric tons, through a combination of product innovations and operational changes.
The company still has work to do to meet its goal of reducing energy in its operations 16 percent by 2010, as it has achieved a nine percent reduction thus far.
