    HP and World Wildlife Fund Establish Global Climate Change Initiatives
    PACIFIC, Singapore, June 2007 HP has announced that it plans to
    allocate more than US$2 million in cash and HP equipment to the World
    Wildlife Fund (WWF) to establish three projects aimed at addressing the
    causes and consequences of climate change on a global basis.
    The projects, which focus on analysis, research and data collection, include:
    * The Epicenter for Climate Conservation – Based in North America and
    focused on advancing climate adaptation and resiliency strategies and
    projects worldwide, the Epicenter for Climate Conservation will be
    driven by HP technology and led by Dr. Lara Hansen, chief climate
    scientist of WWF.

    * Climate Witness – An innovative online forum to raise global
    awareness of the tangible consequences of climate change, Asia-based
    Climate Witness will gather the stories of individuals and communities
    affected by climate change and share them with the world. Climate
    Witness projects will be established in China, India, Brazil and the
    United States.

      * Information and Communication Technology Innovation as a Driver of Climate Change Solutions –
    This program, based in Europe, will work to identify 1 billion tons of
    carbon reductions through the use of information and communication
    technology.“Climate change may be the most significant conservation
    challenge of our era,” said Suzanne Apple, vice president of Business
    and Industry for WWF in the United States. “HP and WWF are committed to
    addressing the causes of climate change and limiting its impact on the

    HP’s investment in these projects is part of the
    company’s ongoing initiative with WWF, first established in November
    2006, to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from its operating facilities
    worldwide; develop measures for product energy usage; educate and
    inspire others to adopt best practices; and, use HP technology in
    conservation efforts around the world.“These initiatives are part of
    HP’s comprehensive philanthropic and environmental strategy that uses
    technology to help reduce our own environmental impact, as well as that
    of our customers, partners and suppliers,” said Pat Tiernan, vice
    president, Corporate, Social and Environmental Responsibility, HP. “Our
    contribution to these projects will deliver measurable results that we
    hope will encourage action from corporations, individuals and
    governments around the world.”Energy efficiency is a key priority at
    HP. The company recently announced a goal to reduce its global energy
    use by 20 percent by 2010. HP also plans to increase its renewable
    energy purchases by more than 350 percent by procuring 50 million
    kilowatt-hours of renewable electricity during 2007.
