The new agreement in Asia Pacific accelerates sustainable IT projects and ESG commitments by combining Schneider Electric and Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s offerings
Hewlett Packard Enterprise has announced a new partnership with Schneider Electric, aimed at delivering a wide range of sustainable IT products and services to customers in the Asia Pacific region. This collaboration is designed to assist enterprises in accelerating their progress towards sustainability and achieving their net-zero commitments. Building on a two-decade-long history of cooperation, both companies will join forces to help customers reduce their IT carbon footprint and emissions.
Under this freshly forged agreement, HPE will make available its assortment of sustainable IT solutions and services, including:
- The Sustainability Dashboard, accessible through the HPE GreenLake platform, which provides visibility, monitoring, and management of IT energy consumption and carbon footprint. This dashboard offers a unified approach for overseeing multi-vendor infrastructure and application resources in hybrid and multi-cloud IT environments.
- HPE Services that enhance sustainability outcomes by providing customers with insights into energy usage and emissions within their IT infrastructure. Additionally, sustainability IT workshops will be offered to advance sustainability metrics across workloads and data centers.
- HPE’s IT asset lifecycle services, which breathe new life into used IT equipment by maximizing their value throughout their lifecycle. These services release trapped value to fund transformation initiatives and promote the reuse of IT assets, aligning with the circular economy principles and tracking their impact in terms of material, energy, carbon, and landfill savings.
- HPE GreenLake cloud services, which help enterprises optimize workloads, offer visibility, and provide elasticity to meet demand efficiently, without overprovisioning.
Schneider Electric, on the other hand, will assist organizations in developing and executing comprehensive enterprise-wide sustainability strategies. This includes reducing the environmental footprint across enterprise operations and value chains by leveraging technology, procuring renewable energy, and adopting an active energy management approach that integrates customers’ sustainability strategies with energy efficiency projects and energy procurement.
By leveraging their distinct areas of sustainability expertise, Schneider Electric and HPE aim to simplify customer access to the sustainability products, solutions, and services offered by each company. This streamlined approach will enable customers to more effectively manage their organization’s carbon footprint throughout their entire value chain.
Mohan Krishnan, Vice President and General Manager of HPE GreenLake Cloud Services, Asia Pacific, commented, “This alignment enables our customers to closely collaborate with HPE and Schneider Electric and seamlessly tap into our collective suite of sustainability offerings. Together, we are able to offer customers an extremely detailed analysis of the carbon emissions footprint of their IT and work with them closely to develop a bespoke strategy to improve the sustainability profile of their IT projects.”
Giuliana Auinger, Head of Sustainability Business, Asia Pacific at Schneider Electric, added, “Schneider Electric is excited to collaborate closely with HPE to support our customers’ sustainable IT commitments in Asia Pacific. This agreement will enable more organizations to take advantage of the decades-long expertise we have in delivering IT solutions to enterprises in the region, and we look forward to helping customers manage their carbon footprint and shift towards clean, renewable energy.”
