HP requests suppliers we identify as high or medium social and environmental risk to complete a self-assessment questionnaire to identify potential social and environmental responsibility performance risks.

The questionnaire is administered electronically through RBA-ON.

RBA-ON is an IT platform for companies to effectively implement a standards-based approach for improving supplier conformance to standards related to labor, health, safety, ethics, and environmental activity. In addition to helping HP evaluate risk, self-assessments help suppliers become more familiar with HP’s expectations of what it means to conform to HP’s Supplier Code of Conduct.

HP reviews the results of the self-assessment and provides feedback. Suppliers create and implement an improvement plan if required.
