HP signed the 2011 2°C Challenge Communiqué, the 2009 Copenhagen Communiqué on Climate Change, the 2008 Poznan Communiqué, and 2007 Bali Communiqué calling for a comprehensive, legally binding United Nations framework to tackle climate change. We signed the Tokyo Declaration calling for a more than 50% reduction in the world’s GHG emissions by 2050.
HP also continues to work with NGOs, customers, governments, and investors to address climate change. We help develop strategies and communications that explore ways to use technology to drive the low carbon economy, and we address climate change and other environmental issues by participating in local and global organizations such as The Climate Group, Conservation International, World Wildlife Fund (WWF), and The Sustainability Consortium.
HP urges both the public and private sectors to join us in taking a leadership role in addressing climate change. While nations and legislative bodies must work together to develop and adopt comprehensive measures that help reduce GHG emissions, businesses are vital to driving the on-the-ground response to climate change.
We also focus our energies and expertise to help customers make better use of energy and other resources, and enable the world’s shift to a circular economy. And we are committed to several Climate Change related goals, such as to start using 100% renewable electricity in our global operations, with an interim goal of 40% by 2020 and to reduce the GHG emissions intensity of HP’s product portfolio by 25% by 2020, compared to 2010.1

1 HP product GHG emissions intensity measures GHG emissions during product lifetime use per unit for personal systems and per printed page for printers based on anticipated usage. These values are then weighted by contribution of personal systems and printing products to overall revenue. These emissions represent more than 99% of HP product units shipped each year, including notebooks, tablets, desktops, thin clients, displays, mobile computing devices, and workstations; and HP inkjet, LaserJet, DesignJet, Indigo, and Scitex printers, PageWide presses and scanners. Through 2016, progress against this goal equaled a 19% decrease.
