Circular economy

Enterprises are hitting resource limitations as they try to scale – there’s never been a better time to remove resource inefficiencies across the entire IT product lifecycle. HPE is committed to a circular economy, helping you make end-to-end choices from design to operation to end of life, optimizing the asset lifecycle and reuse of assets.

HPE takes a data-driven approach to focus our efforts on initiatives that will have the most significant impact on mitigating our environmental footprint.

This commitment, and the technological and engineering innovations it has spurred, is already delivering benefit to our customers: pairing reduced energy and resource consumption, and associated cost, with greater performance.

Accelerating net-zero

As the first IT company to set science-based targets across its value chain aligned to the goals of the Paris climate accord, we recognize the imperative to minimize our industry’s environmental footprint and the opportunity enable a low-carbon economy. HPE is committed to becoming net-zero across the entire value chain—including the use of HPE products—by 2040. Our roadmap to get there requires a fundamental transformation in everything we do.

Supply chain responsibility

Leadership and transparency are central to our supply chain responsibility. We publicly report key information about our suppliers and their social and environmental performance year-over-year, which helps us hold ourselves and our suppliers accountable.
