HP has one of the largest and most sophisticated design and engineering supply chains in the IT industry made up of hundreds of production suppliers and thousands of nonproduction suppliers. We are investing in policies, programs, and capabilities to create a positive impact, strengthen and transform our supply chain, empower workers, and provide greater transparency and accountability to our stakeholders.
We have uncompromising expectations of ethical behavior by our suppliers, partners, and employees. Our suppliers are our partners. Together, we set shared commitments to drive change and prioritize sustainability alongside other business imperatives. We align our approach with the expectations of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights for companies’ due diligence, and comply with the UK Modern Slavery Act, California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, and the Dodd-Frank Act.
Our products represent the efforts of a global network of suppliers and workers who share our values related to planet, people, and communities.
Three core principles guide our management of social and environmental topics in the supply chain, driving us to protect and promote the well-being of the people who make our products, strengthen the communities where they live and work, and protect the planet by reducing negative environmental impacts.
We believe that every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect – We insist that workers in our supply chain have fair treatment, safe working conditions and freely chosen employment.
Our commitment expands beyond the factory floor – We engage extensively with workers to promote wellness and enhance their skills, empowering them to become leaders in their community.
We use or global reach to drive lasting improvements- We are transparent about the challenges in our supply chain and we rally business and government to build resilience and respect for human rights and the environment.
Moreover, as technologies and consumer preferences evolve, our principles drive ongoing progress toward a more sustainable world.
