HP Extends Environmental Leadership with New Technology


HP has announced several additions to its HP Eco Solutions program, including new products, services and operations, as well as company-wide environmental goals. The expanded portfolio provides consumers, small and medium businesses, and enterprises – including HP – with a clear return on investment through financial savings, as well as a “return on environment” through energy, carbon and waste savings. “For more than 50 years, HP has been focused on environmental sustainability and now we’re making it even more relevant for customers, especially in today’s economic climate,” said Jenny Sotto-Siquioco, General Manager, Imaging and Printing Group, HP Philippines. “Through our industry-leading products and solutions we’re helping our customers – from consumers to large corporations – achieve significant dollars savings and improve their environmental performance while enhancing our own operations to achieve the same.” HP’s new offerings add to a growing portfolio that helps customers live and work in a low-carbon economy while remaining cost-effective. Highlights of the announcement include: HP is doubling the number of HP ProLiant G6 server platforms, delivering more x86 server platforms with top energy efficiency than any other company in the industry. HP has set a new goal to save 1 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity by 2011 through a variety of product design strategies. HP launched the HP Eco Solutions printing practice for large organizations, which now includes the HP Web Jetadmin Eco Solutions Reports and updates to the HP Carbon Footprint Calculator for printing that help customers save money through lower paper and energy usage.Energy efficiency to help customers save moneyHP is a leader in delivering practical solutions that translate into convenient, cost-efficient and responsible energy usage for its customers. Through its HP Eco Solutions printing practice for large organizations, which includes an extensive portfolio of tools, software, hardware, services and expertise, HP collaborates with customers to help them reduce their environmental impact and save money. As an example, HP helped Cerritos Library, a high-tech city library in Southern California, reduce energy use by an estimated 30 to 40 percent and cut ongoing costs by almost 50 percent due to HP reliability and lower consumables costs. To date, pre- and post-analysis of some HP managed print services customers’ imaging and printing operations reveals energy savings of between 30 to 80 percent and reductions in paper consumption in the millions of pages. HP has now expanded the practice to include the HP Web Jetadmin Eco Solutions Reports, Change Management kit and updates to the HP Carbon Footprint Calculator for printing.Additionally, HP has set aggressive goals to ensure all its tools and services meet environmental standards and offer cost and energy savings for customers. Examples include:HP has set a new goal to save 1 billion kWh of electricity by 2011 through a variety of product design strategies. With the amount of energy that HP expects its PCs to save, 90,000 homes could be powered for an entire year. HP exceeded the goal it set in January 2008 to reduce the energy consumption of its volume desktop and notebook PC families by 25 percent by 2010, a full year and a half ahead of schedule. Overall, HP has reduced the energy consumption of its highest volume desktop and notebook PCs by 41 percent by since 2005.HP plans to improve the energy efficiency of its printing products by 40 percent by 2011 and is on track to meet this goal with 32 percent efficiency to date. In recent independent tests, HP ProCurve switches have been shown to use less power than the industry average for comparable switches.(5) This represents an annual energy cost savings up to 45 percent versus the industry average for HP ProCurve chassis-based solutions and up to 38 percent versus the industry average for HP ProCurve fixed-port switches. …
