Protecting and restoring forestland is critical for the environment. And it must be done hand-in-hand with the inhabitants of those areas to ensure long-term improvements by promoting sustainable livelihoods and equitable benefits for Indigenous communities. We’ve partnered with sustainability and environmental-focused organizations such as World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Conservation International, and the Arbor Day Foundation to achieve these objectives.
We know solving planet-size problems will not come from a single act of good, or a single company — instead it requires a true culture change. We’re seeing our customers and business partners around the world stepping forward, setting their own aggressive sustainable impact goals and purchasing products that are more responsibly sourced, have a lower carbon footprint, or that have a positive impact within communities. In fact, a 2022 report by Enterprise Strategy Group that surveyed 400 IT professionals at organizations in North America, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand found that 85% of enterprise professional respondents have screened out potential suppliers or products based on environmental, social, or governance-related concerns at least once.
As HP works to provide our customers with products and solutions that align with their values and business missions, we hope to inspire millions of others inside and outside HP to participate in this journey — to go beyond what is expected and to do more. Sustainability is a team sport, and to truly succeed, all our contributions are needed.
Positioning future generations to go beyond
From our earliest days, environmental sustainability and social impact have been part of how HP has operated. The company’s founders truly wanted to make the world a better place. In fact, HP’s first corporate objectives included “good citizenship — making contributions to the community (and) the environment in which we operate.”
The more we embrace Bill and Dave’s philosophies — and empower others to succeed — the more we position ourselves for sustainable success. If we all go beyond, we will create unlimited opportunities for future generations to replicate the spirit and generosity of these two visionaries.
Our choices now will empower the innovators and leaders of tomorrow so they can ensure that the planet, and its people, continue to thrive.
