Supply Chain

45% of total carbon emissions

Goal: Reduce our first-tier production supplier and product transportation-related GHG emissions intensity 10% by 2025, compared to 2015 1


Materials extraction through manufacturing

14,700,000 tonnes CO2e

Emissions associated with all levels of our supply chain from materials extraction through the manufacture of HP products.

In addition to our work with suppliers, HP’s Design for the Environment program considers environmental impact in the design of every product and solution, from the smallest print cartridge to industrial graphics printing solutions.


Capital goods

200,000 tonnes CO2e

Emissions associated with capital goods, from raw materials extraction through manufacturing and building construction.

HP practices sustainable building design to decrease these impacts.


Upstream energy production

100,000 CO2e

Upstream emissions of purchased energy, from raw material extraction up to the point of combustion, as well as transportation and distribution losses in the grid.


Transport

1,300,000 tonnes CO2e

Emissions from upstream and downstream product transportation and distribution, including retail and storage.

To reduce impacts, we work to maximize the efficiency of our supply chain network, shift to less energy-intensive modes of transport, and influence our logistics service providers.

Operations

2% of total carbon emissions

Goal: Reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions from global operations by 25% by 2025, compared to 2015.


Facilities

352,700 tonnes CO2e

Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions associated with energy consumption, perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) in facilities under HP’s operational control.


Transportation fleet

31,000 tonnes CO2e

Emissions associated with HP-owned or leased vehicles.


Commercial air travel

60,000 tonnes CO2e

Emissions associated with employee business travel by commercial aircraft.

We promote digital communications such as video-conferencing as an alternative to travel when feasible, and encourage less carbon-intensive forms of travel when possible.


Employee commuting

200,000 tonnes CO2e

Emissions from employee transportation between their homes and their worksites (in vehicles not owned by HP) and teleworking.

We promote programs in some locations such as ride-sharing, bike storage, and free shuttles from local public transportation to help employees reduce commuting emissions.

Products and Solutions

53% of total carbon emissions

Goal: Reduce the GHG emissions intensity2 of our product portfolio by 25% by 2020 compared to 2010 levels


Product use

19,300,000 tonnes CO2e

Emissions associated with energy consumption of HP products across each of our major business groups, as well as the impact of paper and print cartridges.

We work to design increasingly efficient products and solutions that help customers reduce the environmental impact of their operations and personal lives.


Product end of life

De minimis4

Emissions associated with the operation of assets leased to other entities.


Building leased to others

De minimis4

Emissions associated with the operation of assets leased to other entities.


Investments

De minimis4

Emissions associated with corporate investments in business intelligence solutions, HP Labs, software and certain business incubation projects.

Supply Chain

22% of total water footprint

Our suppliers affect our water footprint primarily through their use of electricity. We encourage suppliers to use and discharge water responsibly, and provide tools that improve water management practices.


Direct consumption

12,600,000 cubic meters

Water consumed by our suppliers in their operations.

We encourage suppliers to track and share their water impact and work with suppliers to improve the accuracy of their water data reporting.


Indirect consumption

31,800,000 cubic meters

Water consumption associated with the generation of electricity used by suppliers.

HP collaborates with several partners to promote energy efficiency among its suppliers through the HP Energy Efficiency Program (EEP).

Operations

3% of total water footprint

While our operations are not water intensive, water availability is a growing concern. We are committed to using less water, especially at operations in water-stressed regions.


Direct consumption

3,224,000, cubic meters

Water consumed in our own operations, primarily for uses such as sinks, toilets, and irrigation as well as manufacturing support activities.


Indirect consumption

3,200,000 cubic meters

Consumption associated with the generation of electricity used in our own operations.

Improving energy efficiency in HP’s operations is the most effective way to reduce the company’s indirect water consumption from operations.

Products and Solutions

75% of total water footprint

Customers using our products account for most of our water footprint. This water is indirectly consumed through using electricity to power our devices and through paper manufacture.


Indirect consumption – electricity for product use

103,300,000 cubic meters

Consumption associated with the generation of electricity used by HP products.


Indirect consumption – paper use

52,900,000 cubic meters

Consumption associated with the manufacturing of paper used by our customers with our products.

We encourage customers to use responsibly sourced and certified paper, to use it efficiently—such as through duplex printing—and to recycle after use.
