Information technology has changed the way we store and manage data, communicate, and innovate—and HP has been the leader of that revolution.

Clean technology presents us with an opportunity to revolutionize another aspect of our lives—how we develop, use, and store energy. Clean tech is not just the development of alternative sources of energy; it's recycling, energy-efficient products, energy-management diagnostic software, and the full disclosure of energy inputs so consumers can make smart decisions about the products they buy.

HP is not the first company that comes to mind when you think of leaders in clean tech, but that is exactly what it is. Whether it is setting standards for transparency and disclosure throughout the industry's largest supply chain, or the use of recycled content in products and cartridges, HP is setting the standard for corporate America.

Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard believed the company had a responsibility to be a good corporate citizen. Today, HP's leadership in environmental sustainability and the deployment of clean technologies is the embodiment of that ethos.
