Circular Economy challenges us to think about product design including how we procure, track, and dispose materials throughout the entirety of a product’s life cycle.
Listen to Antonio discuss how HPE is contributing to the circular economy. For example, by providing customers with consumption based models, HPE helps its customers consume only what they need, helping reduce the total power consumption of its solutions.
Antonio also discusses the intelligent edge and how edge-to-cloud concept will improve utilization of products, making them autonomous and more sustainable.
The word 'modern' generally has positive connotations. It’s up-to-date. Recent. Fresh. Cutting-edge.
Juxtapose that with the word 'slavery'. A most outdated concept. Captivity. Bondage. Oppression and repression. In the 21st century, slavery is surely something that only crazed individuals or dictators could possibly countenance.
There’s a tectonic shift taking place in the industrial world, as concerns about humankind’s impact on the environment drive companies to rethink fundamental aspects of how they do business. It’s no longer enough to pay mere lip service to sustainability. Forward-thinking leaders demand new strategic approaches that not only address environmental demands, but also position their organizations for future growth.
HPE and ABB formed a global partnership which will create sweeping new business opportunities for our shared customers, transforming the way energy and materials are used and dramatically lessening environmental impact. Our joint offering combines ABB’s industry-leading digital offerings, ABB Ability™, with HPE’s innovative Hybrid IT and Intelligent Edge solutions.
Sustainability engagement helped HPE drive nearly $160 million of new revenue in 2017.
We have long known that our Living Progress plan is the right thing for a responsible company to do. But we now have increasing evidence that our sustainability credentials contribute to our business objectives and deliver value to our shareholders.
This trend is reflected in the burgeoning growth of the sustainability investment sector.
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.

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 26, 2018 /3BL Media/ -- Artificial intelligence, blockchain and cryptocurrency: today’s hottest emerging technologies have the potential to reinvent the way we live, but also demand unprecedented amounts of energy and computing resources – calling into question their impacts on our environment, climate, and dwindling resources. In fact, research suggests that by 2025 the IT sector could consume 20% of all the world’s electricity generation. So how can the industry balance innovation and sustainability?
