“In fashion, sustainability and style are compatible concepts, and HP is showing that the same idea holds true for technology,” said Shahpar. “By using the most advanced tools for creativity and communication, it is truly possible to grow your brand and your product with less environmental impact. My new HP technology significantly reduces my energy use and allows me to be more productive, which increases the quantity of my work output and the quality of my work life.” (3)The Unlocking Your Energy kickoff event includes a panel discussion with Chandrakant Patel, senior fellow and director of the Sustainable Ecosystems Research Group at HP Labs, and Kevin Gould, vice president of Research and Development and sustainability officer at Avaya, as well as Bayless and Shahpar. The panel will be moderated by Marc Gunther, contributing editor at FORTUNE magazine and senior writer at Greenbiz.com.

(2) HP compared the energy consumption of comparable HP products in 2005 with its latest models for each category of products. Estimations of the energy consumption of 2005 products were done by using worldwide IDC shipped volumes, HP products, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® program ( www.energystar.gov) product averages and the typical energy consumption (TEC) method. Energy costs are based on the U.S. Department of Energy data ( www.eia.doe.gov); actual results may vary. The following products were used for this analysis: HP Deskjet 3050, HP Laserjet CP1215, HP Laserjet CP1025, HP Compaq 8200 Elite, HP Compaq 2310, HP Compaq 8000f Elite, HP Compaq LE19 monitor, HP Storage EVA, HP Probook 6550b, G60t Series Notebook, Touchsmart M6, HP ProLiant DL380 G4, G6, and HP ProLiant DL360G7 servers.
