We periodically conduct environmental, social, and governance (ESG) materiality assessments to review relevant ESG topics, reconfirm our long-standing areas of focus, and clarify and shape our Sustainable Impact strategy, investments, and disclosures. This process enables us to focus our efforts on the areas where we can have the greatest impact, determine gaps in our approach, and identify trends and leadership opportunities for our business. ESG materiality assessment informs our goals-setting process, and we have set aggressive goals related to several of our most ESG-material topics to manage performance and drive long-term progress.

HP supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We have existing programs that contribute to progress against 16 of the 17 goals and will continue to drive innovations that help achieve them. Some of our current goals include:

  • Use 30% postconsumer recycled content plastic across HP’s personal systems and print product portfolio by 20251
  • Reduce HP value chain GHG emissions by 50% by 2030 (compared to 2019), and achieve net zero emissions by 20402
  • Counteract deforestation for non-HP paper used in our products and print services by 2030.3 Continue to source only sustainable fiber for all HP brand paper and paper-based packaging for home and office printers and supplies, PCs, and displays4
  • Assure respect for labor-related human rights5 for 100% of our key contracted manufacturing suppliers and higher-risk next-tier suppliers, by 2030
  • Enable better learning outcomes6 for 100 million people by 2025, since the beginning of 2015
