Orange is the New Green: HP’s History of Environmental Stewardship
Hewlett-Packard Company (HP) has a long and distinguished tradition of environmental activism with roots reaching deep into its past. HP strives to be an exemplary global company placing particular emphasis on their three priorities: climate and energy, product reuse and recycling, and supply chain responsibility. HP has become one of the few companies to pursue greener technologies without compromising their efficiency and their goals of creating products that improve customers’ lives and work by providing simple, valuable and trusted experiences with technology. HP’s greatest environmental impact is through customer use of their products and services.
Their products are innovatively designed with energy efficiency, material conservation and future recyclability in mind. HP also strives to reduce the use of harmful elements in their products and in 2010 they successfully removed all mercury from their entire notebook line. HP’s forward thinking and sustainable products have earned them the highest rank among electronics companies on Interbrand’s “Best Global Green Brand 2011” and as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for the fourth year in a row as ranked by Mediacorp. Their constant pursuit of greener technology and the numerous conservation programs they have established show HP’s sincere approach towards making a positive impact.
