ACCELERATING THE SOLUTION
Climate change is a challenge none of us can overcome by working independently. We must solve it together through open collaboration, shared learning, building on each other’s achievements, and inspiring one another to set and meet ever more ambitious goals. Through our Low-Carbon Patent Pledge, HPE, Microsoft, and Facebook will help accelerate adoption of low-carbon technologies, foster collaborative innovation, and facilitate sustainable breakthroughs.
“The world needs radical collaboration to meet this critical moment in the climate crisis. To achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, we need to work together to innovate faster. By opening up these patents, we hope to help accelerate and encourage innovation by enabling others to build upon our work.”
-John Frey, Chief Technologist for Sustainable Transformation at Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Encouraging collective action
HPE is joined by collaboration partners, Facebook and Microsoft, in pledging to make freely available to anyone, key patented technologies that have applications in low-carbon innovations including the generation, storage, and distribution of low-carbon energy.

By making patents with low-carbon technology applications freely available to all, we hope to encourage and accelerate the innovation humanity needs to avert a climate disaster. Initially, hundreds of patents will be made available, with the intention to add to this list as more patents become available and others join the Low-Carbon Patent Pledge.
