Palo Alto, Calif., Nov. 17 /CSRwire/ - For the second consecutive year, Hewlett Packard’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the business risks of climate change received the highest possible score by CDP, an international, not-for-profit organization that drives sustainable economies.
Because the CDP reporting period is based on data compiled prior to Hewlett Packard separating into two publicly traded companies on Nov. 1, 2015, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and HP Inc. share the honor.
Hewlett Packard received a disclosure score of 100 out of 100 on the S&P Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI), released on November 16 in the S&P edition of CDP’s annual global climate change report. This position recognizes Hewlett Packard for disclosing high quality carbon emissions and energy data through CDP’s climate change program. The reported data was independently assessed against CDP’s scoring methodology, and organizations graded within the top 10% constitute the CDLI.
In addition, Hewlett Packard was one of 113 companies awarded a position on The Climate “A” List by CDP. The A List has been produced at the request of 822 investors who represent more than a third of the world’s invested capital, with thousands of companies submitting annual climate disclosures to CDP for independent assessment against its scoring methodology. Hewlett Packard was among 5% of the corporations participating in CDP’s climate change program to be awarded a position on the Climate A List.
The Climate A List is included in CDP’s annual global climate change report. The report tracks five years of progress from the world’s largestlisted companies, and reveals the extent to which corporations have shifted their strategies over the past five years to become part of the solution to the climate challenge. Hewlett Packard Enterprise President and Chief Executive Officer Meg Whitman provided a foreword for the global report. “We are proud to have again received the highest possible score on CDP’s global index and the S&P 500 climate change report,” said Chris Librie, senior director, Living Progress, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “As the new Hewlett Packard Enterprise, we are focused on reducing emissions across our entire value chain while helping our customers accelerate efficiency across their enterprise.” More information about Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s carbon reduction goals and other sustainability efforts are available on the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Living Progress website at www.hpe.com/livingprogress.
