Product use goals

2011 HP will reduce the energy consumption of HP products1 and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to 40% below 2005 levels by the end of 2011.

Progress: Reduced to 50% below 2005 levels, achieved nine months ahead of schedule.
Representative product categories have their own goals, including the following goals for HP's high-volume printer, and desktop and notebook PC families:
  HP will improve the overall energy efficiency of HP ink and laser printing products by 40%, relative to 2005.2

Progress: HP exceeded this goal and improved the energy efficiency of HP ink and laser printing products by 46%, relative to 2005.
  HP will save customers one billion kWh of electricity through a variety of product design strategies in HP's high-volume HP desktop and notebook PC families, relative to 2008.3

Progress: HP exceeded this goal and saved customers 1.4 billion kWh through 2010.
  1. 1 The average energy consumption of HP products is estimated using high-volume product lines representative of the overall shipped product volume. Energy consumption has been estimated in 2005 and annually since. The high-volume product lines include notebook and desktop computers, inkjet and LaserJet printers, and industry-standard servers.
  2. 2 Efficiency is defined in terms of kWh (using the typical electricity consumption method) divided by pages per minute. These families represent more than 32% of inkjet printers and more than 45% of LaserJet printers shipped in 2005. HP updated this goal from the goal included in the fiscal year 2007 Global Citizenship Report, which targeted a 30% improvement in energy efficiency by 2010, relative to 2005.
  3. 3 Energy savings calculated by comparing average 2008 HP product ENERGY STAR TEC (typical energy consumption) value to average 2010 HP product ENERGY STAR TEC value multiplied over 2008 volume.
