HP strives to reduce the climate impact of our supply chain, operations, and through our products and solutions and those of our customers. We lead the IT industry in publishing a complete carbon footprint and complete water footprint, which help us understand our business impacts on the climate. We continue to assess and report our carbon and water footprints on an annual basis. These assessments cover HP’s entire value chain—from hundreds of production suppliers and thousands of nonproduction suppliers to our operations, product transportation providers, and millions of customers worldwide. The insights we gain through this process enable us to prioritize efforts to continually improve our performance and track our progress.
To guide our focus on continuing to advance climate action, we have committed to the following goals:
- HP joined RE100, a global initiative led by the Climate Group of top businesses committed to using 100% renewable electricity to lead the transformation of global energy markets
- Reduce the GHG emissions from HP’s global operations by 25% by 2025, compared to 2015
- Commit to 100% renewable electricity in our global operations, with 40% by 2020 (signatory to RE100)
- Reduce the GHG emissions intensity of HP’s product portfolio by 25% by 2020, compared to 2010
- Achieve zero deforestation associated with HP brand paper and paper-based product packaging by 2020
- Reduce first-tier production supplier-related and product transportation-related GHG emissions intensity by 10% by 2025, compared to 2015
- Reduce potable water consumption in global operations by 15% by 2025, compared to 2015
HP is reinventing the way that products are designed, manufactured, used, and recovered as we shift our business model and operations toward a circular, low-carbon economy. Working with our supply chain partners, we are reducing the environmental impact of our products at every stage of the value chain.
HP is developing solutions designed to keep materials in use at their highest state of value for the longest possible time—while working to reduce the resources required to make and use these products and ensure the materials in these products are properly repurposed at end of life. We are reinventing how solutions are designed and delivered, including shifting from transactional product sales to service models, to provide real value to customers while reducing waste and costs, extending product lifespans, and increasing reuse and recycling. And we are transforming how whole industries design, make, and distribute products, helping people turn ideas into finished products in a more efficient, economical, and environmentally conscious way. These efforts support the growing customer demand for products and solutions that reduce environmental impacts without sacrificing quality and reliability.
We believe IT can play a positive role in helping businesses, communities, and individuals address and mitigate climate change. IT is an enabler of new business models and processes that transform the way the world works.
We have a long legacy of environmental leadership and a demonstrated commitment to climate action that is recognized by three consecutive years on the CDP Climate A List and five consecutive years on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index.
