HP’s Blueprint For Sustainable Impact Commits To A More Efficient, Circular, Low-Carbon Economy
Innovation for Sustainable Impact Summit, Sao Paulo, Brazil, February 2019 — HP today outlined its blueprint for Sustainable Impact, aimed at helping organizations in Latin America and around the world shape a more efficient, circular, low-carbon economy.
At today’s event, the company outlined its plans to achieve an ambitious goal to recycle 1.2 million tonnes of hardware and supplies by 2025 – a 5X increase over its current rate – via continued innovation throughout its product portfolio, go-to-market model and sustainable supply chain with partners across Latin America.
“At HP, we are 100% focused on ensuring we do our part to preserve the planet for generations to come,” said Nate Hurst, HP’s Chief Sustainability and Social Impact Officer. “The manufacturing, delivery and use of HP products requires a substantial amount of natural resources.
With one of the industry’s largest global supply chains, HP has a unique opportunity to have a sizable sustainable impact through the design, sourcing and recovery of our products, and to help accelerate progress toward a global circular economy.”
HP’s proactive leadership on environmental and social issues is a critical driver of brand trust. This year, HP was once again named to Corporate Knights’ Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the world ranking.
For the fifth consecutive year, HP was named to CDP’s A List, which recognizes industry pioneers acting on climate change and building our future economy: one that works for both people and planet.
