HP has vowed to reduce its global energy use by a fifth by 2010 by delivering energy-efficient products and services to customers and instituting energy-efficient operating practices in its own premises.
The announcement follows a series of green initiatives from HP including the introduction of select desktop business PCs that offer 80 per cent efficient power supplies.
The company has also redesigned print cartridge packaging for North America to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Pat Tiernan, vice president for corporate, social and environmental responsibility at HP, said: "Sustainability should span the entire business from product reuse and recycling and a socially and environmentally responsible supply chain, to energy efficiency in products and internal operations. It's the whole package."
