Our mission

By 2020, half the world’s population is expected to have internet access and machine-to-machine connections will reach 100 billion devices. With this global connectivity comes both opportunities and challenges.

HPE is developing transformative solutions to reap the benefits of growing connectivity, while reducing the environmental footprint of IT infrastructure.

Our sustainable products help customers transform sectors and expand access to people around the world, reflecting the technology industry’s unique potential to deliver sustainability at scale.

Living Progress in Action

At HPE, we recognize the challenge of meeting the growing demand for computing power in a resource constrained world. By using sustainability as a driver for innovation and growth, HPE is creating sustainable solutions for our company, our customers, and our world.

Our company

We set bold targets to lead the IT sector. We are committed to sourcing 50% renewable electricity for our operations by 2025 and are enabling our manufacturing suppliers to set ambitious emissions reduction targets in their own operations.

Our customers

We help accelerate our customers’ time to value while minimizing their environmental footprint. We are committed to increasing the energy performance of our product portfolio by 30 times by 2025.

Our world

We help our customers leverage the power of technology to transform industries and influence the lives of people around the world. We also develop programs focused on global needs such as education, financial inclusion, and conservation.

Powering the Digital Economy

Emerging technologies get a lot of attention for the promise of transforming the future. But there’s not enough energy available to power the IT infrastructure to run these IT applications at their imagined scale. HPE is creating solutions to power the future sustainably.
