Global trends are forcing corporations, governments, and consumers to radically re-think the “take, make, dispose of” consumption model. HP is responding by transforming our entire business for a circular and low-carbon future. As a result, we are able to derive more value from materials, reduce our value chain impacts, and deliver transformative solutions for our customers.
At HP, we help our customers invent the future. By applying rigorous sustainable design principles, we help to drive progress toward a circular and low-carbon economy through our portfolio of Personal Systems, Home and Office Printing Solutions, Industrial Printing, and 3D Printing products and solutions. Across our portfolio, we maintain high standards in product safety, privacy, and security, while partnering to unleash the social benefits of technology, enable better learning outcomes, improve access to quality healthcare, and support diverse and resilient communities.
We innovate to mitigate the effects of climate change and accelerate the transition to a circular and low-carbon economy—for the sake of our planet, the health, well-being, and prosperity of people and global communities, and the resilience of our business and that of our customers and partners.
Four key strategies guide our progress. We implement these through the design and delivery of our products and solutions, and through global partnerships that are focused on strengthening natural systems. These strategies help to transform industry business models and decouple business growth from resource consumption. This supports our efforts to shrink our environmental footprint and that of our customers and to drive long-term sustainable impact.
We are shifting to a system where we:
- Keep products and materials in use—Designing products for long life, offering service-based solutions that improve customer value and decrease environmental impacts, and recapturing products and materials at end of service for repair, reuse, and recycling.
- Create a low carbon future—Improving product energy efficiency, to reduce customers’ energy consumption and decrease product use carbon and water footprints.
- Design out waste and use materials responsibly—Increasing materials efficiency, using more recycled content, and replacing materials of concern.
- Regenerate natural systems—Partnering to actively strengthen the natural systems that sustain life, with a focus on tackling ocean plastic pollution and protecting and restoring global forests.
