HP Becomes the First IT Company to Set Supply Chain Emissions Goals
The company formerly known as Hewlett-Packard, now called HP, is the first IT company to set a supply chain greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction goal. HP recently announced its goal of a 20 percent decrease in its first tier manufacturing and product transportation-related GHG emissions by 2020 from a 2010 baseline. Earlier this year, HP became one of the first companies globally to publicly disclose its complete carbon footprint. In 2008, HP became the first major IT company to measure and publish aggregated supply chain GHG emissions.
