HP has revealed that its products including 18 HP notebooks, desktops, workstations, thin clients and displays have received the highest rating by the Electronic Products Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) in India. HP is the first company in India to get rated under the Green Electronics Council’s EPEAT registration. The HP EliteBook 1040, one of the thinnest, lightest and most durable Ultrabooks has received the Gold certification along with the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 Business Desktop Mini.
Speaking on the occasion, Ketan Patel, Director, Computing Category, PPS, HP India said, “HP has been a pioneer of designing products with the goal of reducing environmental impact while maximizing overall value for our customers. Increasingly, people want products that have strong environmental attributes, and EPEAT helps consumers and businesses identify products with these attributes. We believe, in the long term, what’s right for the environment is what’s good for business.”
“Customers across the world are becoming environmentally conscious and want to use products that have an associated environmental value, which could be anything from energy efficiency to recyclable materials used in the products. Companies like HP are leading the curve by manufacturing products that integrate environmental excellence and high technical performance”, said Robert Frisbee, chief executive officer, Green Electronics Council.
The EPEAT covers categories of environmental attributes that cover the full life cycle of electronic products. They give the rating to products in terms of Gold, Silver and Brozne. This time HP India has been honoured with the Gold certification.
