HP is driving progress toward a more sustainable future. We set bold, long-term goals and focus our strategy on where we can have the greatest impact.


 HP supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and remains committed to driving progress on select goals that are closely aligned to our Sustainable Impact strategy. Our goals, among others, include:

  • Use 30% postconsumer recycled content plastic across HP’s personal systems and print product portfolio by 2025.1
  • Reduce first-tier production supplier and product transportation-related GHG emissions intensity by 10% by 2025, compared to 2015.2
  • Achieve zero deforestation associated with HP brand paper and paper-based product packaging by 2020.3
  • Develop skills and improve the well-being of 500,000 factory workers by 2025, since the beginning of 2015.
  • Enable better learning outcomes for 100 million people by 2025, since the beginning of 2015.

1 Recycled content plastic (RCP) as a percentage of the total plastic used in all HP personal systems, printer hardware, and print cartridges shipped during the reporting year. Total volume excludes brand-licensed products and after-market hardware accessories. Total RCP includes postconsumer recycled plastic, closed-loop plastic, and ocean-bound plastics used in HP products. Personal systems plastic is defined by EPEAT® eco-label criteria. Subject to relevant restrictions on the use and distribution of materials destined for recycling and/or recycled feedstocks. 


2 Intensity is calculated as the portion of first-tier production and product transportation suppliers’ reported GHG emissions attributable to HP divided by HP’s annual revenue. This method normalizes performance based on business productivity. Intensity is reported as a three-year rolling average to decrease the impact of variance year over year and highlight longer-term trends. Production supplier GHG emissions include Scope 1 and Scope 2.


3 All HP brand paper and paper-based product packaging will be derived from certified and recycled sources by 2020, with a preference for virgin fiber from certified sources of the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®). Packaging is the box that comes with the product and all paper-based materials inside the box.
