Supplier sustainability requirements apply to any supplier doing business with HP and are part of any contract with an HP legal entity that obligates the supplier to comply with HP’s Supply Chain Responsibility requirements or policies including the Supplier Code of Conduct. “Supplier” refers to any party that provides goods or services for HP’s internal use or in connection with a product that is sold, provided, or marketed by HP.
We focus our efforts where we believe we can have the greatest impact. With direct suppliers, we invest in programs that empower and protect workers, improve factory conditions, and elevate management systems. We measure performance through tools such as the sustainability scorecard, the key performance indicator (KPI) program, and audits to monitor compliance with our expectations and identify opportunities for collaboration and improvement. We also recognize that there are risks deeper in our supply chain, extending all the way to the sourcing of minerals and raw materials used to make our products. Our conflict minerals program is designed to address these risks by collecting data, fostering transparency, and encouraging responsible sourcing.
