HP announced plans to allocate more than $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 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 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 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ An innovative online forum to raise global awareness of the tangible consequences of climate change, Climate Witness will gather the stories of individuals and communities affected by climate change and share them with the world.
This is great news, HP appear to be committing funds and technology to aid with climate change which has to be a good thing for HP from a corporate social responsibility angle, and for some funds for WWF to continue their work. Check it out.
