HP's Energy Efficiency: Do More, Use Less
Welcome to the latest issue of Venture. In this edition, we aim to demonstrate how HP’s commitment to the environment can help you stay committed without changing the way you work.
Why be energy efﬁcient?
Being energy efﬁcient makes business sense
Whether your goal is to save money, comply with environmental regulations or just leave a smaller impact on the earth’s resources, HP is dedicated to helping you work responsibly. More than being told why you have to, there are so many reasons why you should want to.
When you take the steps toward creating a better world in which to live, you are taking a step in the right direction towards operating a more cost-effective and responsible workplace. Energy efﬁciency and environmental responsibility no longer have to compete. They work hand in hand to make sense for your business.
Better for the earth and better for your business
From hardware that is designed intelligently to use less energy and produce less waste, to settings that let you monitor your energy use, conserving energy is not just good for the earth, it’s good for your budget. At HP you won’t pay a premium for products with energy efﬁcient settings enabled, saving you more in the long run.
When you consume less energy, you save money. When you produce less waste, you help the earth. Start with HP business desktop PCs. See your potential energy savings with the Energy Savings Calculator,1 and then monitor your usage by implementing simple software tools like HP Power Manager. This useful tool lets you see your impact by translating your energy savings into barrels of oil, miles driven or carbon dioxide emissions saved per year.
More options to make a positive impact on your bottom line? Now, that’s just plain good for business.
It’s too easy not to
Did you know that a single PC with enabled power settings saves enough energy to power a 75W light bulb continuously for over a year?2 Most people don’t realize that an act as small as using a PC with built-in energy efﬁcient settings can make such a big difference.
That’s why we make it easy for you to be energy efﬁcient. All of our business desktop PCs and workstations are EPEAT™ Gold registered, which means they are rated the highest level in regards to environmental performance. Our monitors, printers and other equipment are designed with the environment in mind, so they consume less energy and use fewer hazardous materials, making them easier to recycle.
And, when you’re ready to transition or upgrade your PC, we have convenient recycling, re-use and trade-in programs, so your equipment can be disposed of properly and conveniently.
It’s expected of you
Pressure is increasing from the government, the business community and consumers, requiring businesses small and large alike to address energy conservation demands and operate with social responsibility. It’s no longer just something businesses do to promote goodwill, it’s become a requirement.
From using fewer hazardous materials, to ensuring that our products meet strict environmental guidelines, we’ve designed our equipment with compliancy and efﬁciency in mind. We’ve found alternative materials to meet the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directives and made it easier for you to buy affordable products that comply with regulations put out by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
With all the reasons you have to be energy efﬁcient and all the resources HP has to help you do so, the choice is easy and a good one for your business.
