HP said that it will redouble efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions from its global operations and in addition to that strengthen relationships with key organizations that urge businesses to improve environmental performance.
HP aims at reducing the greenhouse emissions from its global operations by 25% by 2025 as compared to the 2015 levels. The company also renewed its partnership with World Wildlife Fund’s Climate Savers Program.
“Business is the force that can demonstrate leadership on climate change. HP has been progressive in reducing emissions through improving operational efficiency, and is uniquely positioned to raise its voice in important climate policy discussions,” said Matt Banks, climate and business manager, World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
The company has a three-phase approach to reducing climate impacts across its facilities and transportation fleet all over the world.
The first phase focuses on optimizing energy efficiency in its operations and buildings. This will include implementing IT-based energy savings systems which integrate digital lighting control, diagnostic sensors, and software, and mobile user apps with building automation systems.
The second and third phases will focus on increasing the use of renewable energies.
“By continuously pushing ourselves to reduce our total carbon footprint, we are ensuring our business is resilient and ready to serve our customers, investors, employees, and other stakeholders as we pave the way towards a low-carbon circular economy future,” said Nate Hurst, HP’s Chief Sustainability and Social Impact Officer.
HP views this step to cut greenhouse gas emissions not only as a responsibility but also as an opportunity to do what is vital for the future of its businesses.
