HP calls on communities for environmental change
HP has launched Power To Change, a campaign that encourages personal computer users around the world to make behavioral changes in support of the environment.

The campaign encourages users to download a new desktop widget that tracks the cumulative energy savings associated with participants turning off idle PCs when not in use.

The Power To Change widget is available for download by individuals and companies across the globe and is compatible with all PC computing platforms. With the widget, computer users worldwide can watch and explore the energy savings the campaign generates through the power of behavioral changes across individual and global users.

“Power To Change is the manifestation of HP’s long-held philosophy that industry leadership is about an ongoing contribution to society,” said John Frey, Americas sustainability executive at HP. “With Power To Change, individuals and organizations can make a small environmental commitment that has the potential for a large impact on addressing sustainability challenges today.”

HP estimates that if 100,000 users shut down their work computers at the end of each day, energy savings could total more than 2,680 kilowatt-hours and carbon emissions reductions could total more than 3,500 pounds per day. This is the equivalent of eliminating more than 105 cars from the road each day.

Power To Change is launching across all three HP regions – Asia Pacific and Japan; Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and the Americas – and is available in five languages: Chinese, English, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish.

The company has exceeded the goal it set in January 2008 to reduce the energy consumption of its volume desktop and notebook PC families by 25 percent by 2010, a full year and a half ahead of schedule. HP has set a new goal to save 1 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity by 2011 through a variety of product design strategies that reduce energy consumption in its volume PCs. With the amount of energy that HP PCs expects to save, 90,000 homes could be powered for an entire year.
