Water withdrawal associated with our operations makes up 1% of our total water footprint. This is roughly evenly split between direct withdrawal (mainly for use in buildings, cooling, landscaping, and production of high-purity water for manufacturing) and indirect withdrawal associated with generation of the electricity we use in our facilities.

In 2022, we withdrew 2,227,000 cubic meters of water overall, 13% less than in 2021. The majority of this decrease was due to water-reduction projects at two sites, as well as decreases in production. The annual intensity factor adjustment, which applies to sites where water data is extrapolated, decreased our estimated water withdrawal by 67,000 cubic meters during the year (equivalent to 3% of the total). Water withdrawal intensity per million U.S. dollars of net revenue decreased by 12% between 2021 and 2022.

HP recycled or reused 279,000 cubic meters of water1 globally during 2022 for landscaping, indoor plumbing fixtures, and as process water. This was equivalent to 12.5% of total water withdrawal. The company also captured and used 2,000 cubic meters of rainwater for cooling towers during the year.

We use the World Resource Institute Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas tool to assess the risk of sites and prioritize water-stressed locations. Using this tool, we assessed 159 HP facilities as part of our risk modeling for 2022. Sixty-four of the facilities assessed (40% of the total) fall within the high or extremely high risk categories for baseline water stress.2 We withdrew 238,000 cubic meters of water from these locations, representing 10.7% of our overall water withdrawal.

1 NEWater (ultra-purified wastewater used in manufacturing operations, landscaping, and plumbing in Singapore) is currently our only reused source.

2 To more closely align with the GRI Standards, we are reporting this data according to baseline water stress as opposed to overall water risk as reported in past years.
