HP previously announced a goal to reduce total greenhouse gas emissions from its operations (scope 1 and scope 2) by 20 percent by 2020, compared to 2010 levels. This built on HP’s previous goal of a 20 percent carbon reduction, which the company achieved in 2011 — two years early.
And last year, HP set a goal, the first for the IT industry, to drive a 20 percent decrease in first-tier manufacturing and product transportation-related GHG emissions intensity by 2020, compared with 2010.
HP’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the business risks of climate change have once again been recognized by CDP. In the CDP S&P 500 Climate Change Report 2014, released yesterday, HP received the highest possible disclosure score, 100 out of 100 points. This resulted in HP’s placement on the Climate Disclosure Leadership Index.
