Amplifying HP Sustainability Initiatives with Virtu
Leverage the right technology and the right people to reach your sustainability goals successfully.
HP’s sustainability initiatives help build a better future for both people and planet
HP has been recognized as a leader in corporate sustainability by several leading organisations, and this recognition is based on its performance in areas such as eco-efficiency, innovation, transparency, and social and environmental sustainability. They have created a business model that doesn’t just show they espouse corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives – it shows they live by them.
HP sustainability impact initiatives recognise that sustainable practices are not just about saving money or doing good for the world; they also have to make sense for business, which is why they are committed to helping companies achieve their sustainability goals while also improving their bottom line. They do this by creating a company environment and a range of products which prioritise climate action, human rights, and digital equity, so you can rest assured that with HP by your side, your business is making the most eco-friendly and ethical choice available.
Protecting the planet with the right state of mind and a stellar business strategy
HP’s climate action strategy focuses on positively impacting the planet in 3 key areas: carbon emissions, forests, and circularity, and they do not take their responsibility lightly. By holding themselves accountable, they endeavour to reach carbon neutrality and zero-waste in HP operations and use 100% renewable energy in their global operations by 2025, and it doesn’t stop there.
They are also working towards achieving carbon neutrality with the Supplies business, reducing HP absolute value chain GHG emissions by 50%, reaching 75% circularity for products and packaging, maintaining zero deforestation for HP paper and paper-based packaging, and counteracting deforestation for non-HP paper used in their products and print services by 2030. And, finally, achieving net-zero GHG emissions across the HP value chain by 2040.
Empowering people by creating a culture of inclusion, justice, and equity
HP understands the importance of human rights in the modern age, and they are dedicated to leading the way with a business model that empowers workers, creates a culture of inclusion and belonging, and advances human rights, social justice, and racial and gender equity.
They are making great strides towards achieving 50/50 gender equality in HP leadership, achieving greater than 30% technical women and women in engineering, meeting or exceeding labour market representation for racial/ ethnic minorities in the United States, maintaining higher than a 90% rating on the internal inclusion index for all employee demographics annually, being universally ranked as an employer of choice for underrepresented groups in the technology industry, reaching one million workers through worker empowerment programs, and assuring respect for labour-related human rights for 100% of our key contracted manufacturing suppliers and higher risk next-tier suppliers by 2030.
Bridging the access gap to education, jobs, and healthcare for a better community
HP is committed to bridging the gap in access to education, healthcare, and jobs for underprivileged communities around the world by implementing and activating the holistic solutions needed to nurture better access to digital opportunities in order to transform both lives and communities.
With a focus on education, healthcare, and economic opportunity, HP strives to enable better learning outcomes for 100 million people by 2025 and accelerate digital equity for 150 million people by 2030.
