About environmental sustainability
With more than seven billion people seeking greater prosperity worldwide, balancing economic growth with environmental sustainability calls for innovation and leadership. Working towards a more sustainable world, HP Living Progress responds to this challenge by improving the efficiency of our products and solutions, supply chain, and operations. By combining the expertise of our people, our innovative technology portfolio, and collaborative partnerships, we are working to create solutions that reduce environmental impact and expand opportunities.
We are working with our customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders to develop and share solutions that streamline and replace resource-intensive processes. We will move our business forward by reducing HP’s own environmental footprint while helping people prosper and companies thrive.
Our approach has three pillars, as shown in this diagram:
calendar year basis. 2011 is the most recent year data is available.
product lines representative of the overall shipped product volume. The high-volume product lines include notebook and
desktop computers, inkjet and LaserJet printers, and industry-standard servers.
Our analysis followed the guidelines of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol developed by the World Resources Institute and the World Business Council on Sustainable Development. Ernst & Young has assured the results and we detail our methodology and assumptions in our carbon accounting manual. The results will inform our climate change strategy moving forward.
Business for Social Responsability
1The average energy consumption of HP products was estimated annually between 2005 and 2010 using high-volume product lines representative of the overall shipped product volume. The high-volume product lines include notebook and desktop computers, inkjet and LaserJet products, and industry-standard servers.
2 Emissions from Facilities and Transportation fleet (Scope 1 and Scope 2) are from 2012. Emissions in the other categories included in this graphic (Scope 3) are from 2011. To calculate Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions, HP has followed the principles outlined in the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. Ernst & Young has assured HP’s global Scope 1, 2, and 3 GHG emissions for the years noted. Additional details on calculations and methodology can be found in HP’s ‘Carbon Accounting Explanations’ document
