HP Carbon Footprint Calculator
The free online HP Carbon Footprint Calculator1 helps customers understand and identify steps to reduce the environmental impact and cost of their computing and printing. The data is based on energy assessments specific to the customer's country or even state—and includes information for 146 countries.
The calculator allows users to either review individual products or compare one product against another to understand potential energy savings. For printers, it is possible to evaluate a whole fleet.
Customers can compare individual current and legacy HP products. The calculator shows the estimated energy use and cost, and the associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Sliders on the screen allow customers comparing printers to vary factors, such as pages printed per year and the lifetime of the equipment, and immediately see the estimated effect on energy use and other factors. PC users can input alternative power supplies, graphics cards, and processors.
Business customers can work with HP to build a baseline estimate of their printing products' carbon footprint as a starting point for environmental improvements.
The assessment includes three simple steps:
- Enter your country, region, or (in some cases) state.
- Provide basic data about your organization and your printer fleet.
- Define your energy- and paper-saving practices, such as powering off equipment daily, the number of hours you use your printer each week, and printing on both sides of paper.
The calculator shows your current energy consumption and estimated GHG emissions, paper use, and annual cost. It then illustrates how HP business solutions can help you reduce your impact and save money. Alternatively, customers can opt for an advanced path that allows them to input the exact printers they use, resulting in more precise outputs that better reflect the customer's current situation.
1 The Carbon Footprint Calculator generates estimates of energy consumption during use of a PC, monitor, or printer, emissions of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) from production of that electricity, and CO2e emissions from production of estimated volumes of paper consumed during printing (i.e., estimated CO2e from electricity production and CO2e from paper production). It is based on certain key assumptions and makes use of data and models generated by third parties. For more information visit: www.hp.com/carbonfootprint.
