Sustainability fuels our innovation and growth. It is at the heart of how our products are designed, made, used, and regenerated. It’s a focal point as we reinvent our business models and operations toward a more efficient, low-carbon, circular economy—decoupling economic growth from reliance on raw materials.
HP’s footprint covers our entire value chain, from our suppliers and operations to customer use and product end of service. Mapping the environmental impact of this complex system empowers us to take action where it matters most. Building on a rich heritage as the first company1 in the IT industry to publish its complete carbon footprint, HP remains committed to transparency and leadership in measuring and reducing environmental impact.
To that end, HP has set bold goals to guide our path to reinventing technology so businesses, communities, and individuals can thrive.
- Commit to 100% renewable electricity in our global operations with 40% by 2020
- Reduce the GHG emissions from HP’s global operations by 25 percent by 2025, compared to 2015
- Achieve zero deforestation associated with HP brand paper and paper-based product packaging2 by 2020
- Reduce the GHG emissions intensity of HP’s product portfolio by 25% by 2020, compared to 20103
HP has been recognized as one of the world’s most sustainable companies by leading organizations, including the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for five consecutive years; being named to CDP’s Climate A List, Forest A List, Supplier Climate A List, and recognized as a Supplier Engagement Leader; 14 years being listed on FTSE4Good; and included on the 2017 Corporate Knights’ Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations Index.
Yet, we will not rest on our laurels. Climate change is one of the most significant and urgent issues facing business and society today, and each of us—country, industry, company, community and individual—has a role to play in driving solutions. HP is taking tangible action on 16 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and we’re proud to partner with WWF Climate Savers and to join We Mean Business and hundreds of other forward-looking businesses in supporting a Low Carbon USA.
