HP has set a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its global operations by 25 percent by 2025, compared to 2015.
The IT giant says it will reduce its climate impacts through a three-phase approach: first, optimizing energy efficiency in its operations and buildings. The other two phases focus on shifting toward less GHG-intensive energy sources, including increased use of on-site renewable power, and through acquired or generated off-site renewable power to offset brown power emissions.
In conjunction with setting this new operations goal, HP renewed its commitment to World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) Climate Savers Program, a global program to engage business and industry on climate and energy.
HP’s new operations goal builds on two previous goals set by the Hewlett-Packard Company (Hewlett-Packard Company split into HP and Hewlett Packard Enterprise in November 2015).
In 2015, Hewlett-Packard Company achieved a 29 percent reduction in scope 1 and scope 2 emissions compared to 2010 levels, exceeding its 20 percent by 2020 goal set in 2013. Prior to that, the company achieved a 20 percent carbon reduction in its operations in 2011 compared to 2005 — two years ahead of its goal.
