Sustainable Impact is at the heart of HP’s business strategy, and we aim to be the world’s most sustainable and just technology company.
Through innovative products and services, we are providing our customers an increasingly circular experience. Our vision is to become a fully circular company powered by service models and circular design in our products, which will affect every part of our business. To minimize environmental impacts, we are working toward product circularity, continued improvements in energy efficiency, using more sustainable materials and making substantial investments in forests. We extend product life through design, maintenance, upgrades, repair, and innovative service-based business models. At end of service, we strive to reuse or recover all products. Supporting these efforts, we aspire to using 100% renewable energy and producing zero waste to landfill across our manufacturing process.
We apply rigorous circular design principles to drive progress toward a circular and net zero carbon economy through our portfolio of personal systems, home and office printing solutions, large format printing, industrial graphics, and 3D printing products and solutions. Far-reaching goals related to product circularity, counteracting deforestation, and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction underpin these efforts.
Four key strategies guide our efforts to transform business models and decouple business growth from resource consumption. By focusing on these areas, we will continue to shrink our environmental footprint, support our customers to meet their own sustainability goals, and realize long-term sustainable impact.
- Product circularity— Keeping products and materials in use for longer, designing out waste, expanding repair, reuse, and recycling, increasing longevity, and implementing circular business models
- Energy efficiency—Improving product energy efficiency, to reduce customers’ energy consumption and decrease product use carbon and water footprints
- Sustainable materials—Increasing materials efficiency, practicing responsible chemistry, using more recycled content and renewable materials, and tackling ocean plastics
- Forest positive—Responsibly sourcing paper and packaging, restoring, protecting and responsibly managing forests, and inspiring industry action
We will continue to innovate throughout our product portfolio and work with suppliers and channel partners to increase circularity.
