To ensure that we minimize the social and environmental impact of our worldwide supply chain practices, we have:

  • Implemented the use of a Supply Chain Social and Environmental Policy
  • Adopted the use of the new Electronic Industry Code of Conduct, which formalises hp's supplier labour, human rights, health, safety, environmental and ethical expectations
  • Strengthened our supplier contract and purchasing agreements to reflect our new expectations
  • Communicated our SER conformance monitoring process
  • Began auditing of our supplier's facilities
  • Developed requirements for supplier performance reporting and corrective actions for nonconformance
  • Expanded performance results of supply chain SER conformance in HP's annual Sustainability Report

In selecting and retaining qualified suppliers, HP will show preference to suppliers that meet or exceed our expectations. For more information see Supply Chain Policies and Standards.
