HP Carbon Footprint Calculator

Our free, web-based HP Carbon Footprint Calculator allows customers to compare estimated energy and paper use and costs, along with CO2e emissions, for HP- and Compaq-branded computing and printing products, taking into account user location1. The calculator received more than 85,800 visits in 20132 and covers more than 9,000 HP and non-HP devices, including printers, computers, and monitors.

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.

Printer fleet assessment

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:

  1. Enter your country, region, or (in some cases) state.
  2. Provide basic data about your organization and your printer fleet.
  3. 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 Power, cost, and carbon calculations are estimates. Results will vary based on variables, which include information provided by the user, time PC is in different power states (on, standby, off), time PC is on AC, hardware configuration, variable electricity rates, and utilities provider. HP advises customers to use information reported by this Carbon Footprint Calculator for reference only and to validate impact on their environment.
