HP is driving progress toward a more sustainable future. We set bold, long-term goals and focus our strategy where we can have the greatest impact. 

HP supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and remains committed to driving progress on select goals that are closely aligned to our Sustainable Impact strategy. Our goals, among others, include:

  •        Reduce first-tier production supplier and product transportation-related GHG emissions intensity by 10% by 2025, compared to 2015.1
  •        Reduce HP product use GHG emissions intensity by 30% by 2025, compared to 2015.2
  •        Use 100% renewable electricity in global operations by 2035
  •        Use 30% postconsumer recycled content plastic across HP’s personal systems and print product portfolio by 20253
  •        Eliminate 75% of single-use plastic packaging by 2025, compared to 20184

Develop skills and improve the wellbeing of 500,000 factory workers by 2025, since the beginning of 2015.

  •        Enable better learning outcomes for 100 million people by 2025, since the beginning of 2015.

1 Intensity is calculated as the portion of first-tier production and product transportation suppliers’ reported GHG emissions attributable to HP divided by HP’s annual revenue. This method normalizes performance based on business productivity. Intensity is reported as a three-year rolling average to decrease the impact of variance year over year and highlight longer-term trends. Production supplier GHG emissions include Scope 1 and Scope 2.

2 Product use GHG emissions intensity describes the performance of our portfolio, taking into account changes to product mix and business growth. HP Product use GHG emissions intensity measures per unit GHG emissions during anticipated product lifetime use. These values are then weighted by the contribution of personal systems and printing products to overall revenue. These emissions represent more than 99% of HP product units shipped each year, including notebooks, tablets, desktops, mobile computing devices, workstations, displays, and digital signage; HP inkjet, LaserJet, DesignJet, Indigo, Scitex, and Jet Fusion 3D printers; and scanners.

Recycled content plastic (RCP) as a percentage of the total plastic used in all HP personal systems, printer hardware, and print cartridges shipped during the reporting year. Total volume excludes brand-licensed products and after-market hardware accessories. Total RCP includes postconsumer recycled plastic, closed-loop plastic, and ocean-bound plastics used in HP products. Personal systems plastic is defined by EPEAT® eco-label criteria. Subject to relevant restrictions on the use and distribution of materials destined for recycling and/or recycled feedstocks..

4 Calculated as the percentage of primary plastic packaging (by weight) reduced per unit shipped. Excludes secondary and tertiary packaging components. Includes HP's personal systems and printer hardware packaging. It does not include packaging for the following: Graphics Solutions Business (GSB) hardware other than PageWide XL and DesignJet printers; 3D printing hardware; print supplies; refurbished products; and accessories such as third-party options, drop in box, and aftermarket options.
