HP to Cut Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Increase Energy Efficiency of Products
Technology-based Solutions Eyed As Part Of New Agreement With World Wildlife Fund-US

HP and World Wildlife Fund-US (WWF-US) have announced a joint initiative to reduce HP’s greenhouse gas emissions from its operating facilities worldwide, educate and inspire others to adopt best practices, and use HP technology in conservation efforts around the world.

The projects include:

By 2010, HP will reduce carbon dioxide emissions from HP-owned and HP-leased facilities worldwide to 15 percent below their 2006 levels. To achieve this, WWF-US and HP will identify the best technology and practices to reduce energy use. HP will also continue to investigate and purchase cost-effective renewable energy.

HP will report and verify carbon dioxide emissions from its facilities, based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and the World Economic Forum’s Global Greenhouse Gas Registry.

HP will develop energy efficiency measurements for its product categories. Based on those metrics, HP will work with WWF-US to develop goals for improved product performance and report publicly on progress toward those goals.

WWF-US and HP will define and implement educational efforts to address climate change with key stakeholders and highlight best practices adopted by consumers and businesses.

WWF-US and HP will leverage HP technology to advance the science and practice of adapting and becoming resilient to climate change. An initial project involves funding from HP to study the effects of climate change on the wildlife and habitats of North America’s Bering Sea.

“We are pleased to be working with HP on this exciting initiative to reduce their energy consumption and educate others about climate change,” said Suzanne Apple, vice president, Business and Industry, WWF-US. “HP will be a vital partner as we address the effects of climate change in some of the world’s most important wildlife habitats.”

“We regard WWF as a worldwide leader in environmental conservation efforts and undertaking these projects with them as positive and innovative steps in HP’s longstanding commitment to global citizenship and the environment,” said Pat Tiernan, vice president, Corporate, Social and Environmental Responsibility, HP.
