HP raises ranking on Greenpeace Cool IT Leaderboard
HP is in the fourth spot in Version 6 of the Greenpeace Cool IT rankings, up from 10th position last year. This success demonstrates the organization’s commitment to “enabling a modern, renewable-powered energy infrastructure”, putting HP on a par with Sprint IT and Indian electronics manufacturer Wipro (who all tied for the fourth position with 43 points) and trailing only Google, Cisco (tied first place with 58 points), Ericsson (second place with 51 points), and Fujitsu (third place with 44 points). Other big names placed lower in the rankings – IBM (with 35 points), Dell (with 27 points) – while Apple chose not to participate.
Now in its sixth year, the Cool IT Leaderboard was launched in 2009 by Greenpeace to identify the global IT companies driving change in the energy sector. It considers contributions in three specific areas: economy-wide technological climate solutions, reduction of own global warming emissions, and engagement in political advocacy and policy support.
This year, HP was recognized for its increased advocacy effort – specifically for signing onto a letter (urging US Congressional leadership to extend wind tax credit) alongside Sprint and Microsoft – and for its product efficiency, and measurement of supply-chain emissions. The Greenpeace investigation also helpfully identified areas for improvement, and urged HP to use environmental and renewable energy performance goals to guide future growth.
