HP today announced it has been included in the Carbon Disclosure Project’s (CDP) S&P 500 “Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index,” released today.
In addition, HP has selected a software platform from Hara, a provider of environmental and energy management solutions, to automate energy and sustainability data collection across more than 1,000 HP facilities worldwide.
Together, the developments demonstrate HP’s corporate commitment to environmental sustainability and show that its efforts are being recognized throughout the industry.
CDP’s “Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index”
The CDP’s S&P 500 “Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index” is a key component of its annual S&P 500 report. According to CDP, the index highlights constituent companies within the S&P 500 Index that have displayed the most professional approach to corporate governance regarding climate change information disclosure practices, specifically on internal data management and understanding of climate change related issues affecting the company.
The full 2011 S&P 500 report, including those companies featured in the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index, is available at www.cdproject.net.
Hara selected to strengthen energy and sustainability data management
Hara’s software platform will enable HP to automate energy and sustainability data management worldwide so it can more accurately forecast energy consumption and improve sustainability practices. The deployment will play a critical role in providing advanced analytics and decision support as HP works across its own organization, its customers and its supply chain to optimize energy use, reduce associated greenhouse gas emissions and resource consumption in IT product manufacturing, transport and use.
In early 2011, HP launched HP Energy and Sustainability Management (ESM), which helps customers optimize energy and other resource use across the enterprise. Hara works closely with HP as an ESM partner to provide clients with a holistic approach to identify, prioritize and act on energy- and resource-efficiency strategies.
