HP is proud to have secured again a leadership position in the annual Newsweek Green Rankings. In 2011, HP ranked second on the America’s Greenest Companies list and fifteenth in the world. We continue to remain committed to leadership in environmental sustainability both within the technology sector and beyond through a variety of programs within our own operations, that of our supply chain and in the products and services that we deliver to market. This type of third party recognition helps to remind us of the importance and impact of our sustainability initiatives across the business and to the world at large.
According to Newsweek, it partnered with environmental research groups Trucost and Sustainalytics to put together the benchmark, and the methodology combines an environmental impact score, an environmental management score, and an environmental disclosure score. HP’s overall Newsweek Green Score was 75.8 percent, which reflected in part HP’s strong environmental management systems, sustainable building designs, and achievement of goals such as the removal of mercury from all notebooks and the reduction of greenhouse-gas emissions to 40 percent below 2005 levels.
Not content to rest on our laurels, HP continues to execute on our environmental sustainability strategy within HP Labs, across our business units and at the corporate level. We recently announced the selection of Hara, a provider of environmental and energy management solutions, to automate energy and sustainability data collection across more than 1,000 HP facilities worldwide. And in late September 2011, we hosted a diverse group of stakeholders in London with a vested interest in addressing the global energy challenge. An updated collection of our environmental sustainability news can always be found in our HP and the environment online press kit.
