Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and France-based Schneider Electric have joined forces to offer an array of sustainability IT products and services to customers in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.

Through their agreement, both companies aim to support enterprises to speed up progress in meeting their commitments to sustainability and net zero.

By combining HPE’s sustainable IT expertise and solutions with Schneider Electric’s know-how in renewable energy, supply chain decarbonisation, and enterprise-wide sustainability strategy, the parties will help clients to reduce IT carbon footprint and emissions.

HPE will offer a sustainability dashboard on its GreenLake platform to offer visibility, tracking, and management of IT energy consumption and carbon footprint.

The company will also offer HPE Services to enhance sustainability results by helping customers deliver a comprehensive picture of energy use and emissions within their IT infrastructure.

Besides, HPE will provide IT asset lifecycle services to give rejuvenate previously used IT equipment and HPE GreenLake cloud services to optimise workloads.

HPE GreenLake Cloud Services Asia Pacific vice president and general manager Mohan Krishnan said: “This alignment enables our customers to partner closely 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.”

On its part, Schneider Electric will enable institutions to build and implement an extensive enterprise-wide sustainability strategy, including the reduction of environmental footprint across enterprise operations and value chains.

It will be made possible by utilising technology, renewable energy offtake, and deploying an active energy management approach that integrates the sustainability strategies of customers with energy efficiency projects and energy procurement practices.

Schneider Electric Asia Pacific sustainability business head Giuliana Auinger said: “This agreement will enable more organisations 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.”

The agreement between the parties is said to have been built on 20 years of their collaboration in the region. It will cover customer engagements across Australia, Singapore, Korea, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
