2Emissions intensity of HP’s product portfolio refers to tonnes CO2e/net revenue arising from use of more than 95% of HP product units shipped each year, including notebooks, tablets, desktops, mobile computing devices, and workstations; and HP inkjet, HP LaserJet, and DesignJet printers, and scanners. Expressed as emissions generated per unit of output, based on anticipated usage. For personal systems products, this reflects energy consumed by each product unit during customer use. For printing products, this reflects energy and paper consumed to print each page.
