HP released their 2018 Sustainable Impact Report on the 19th of June 2019.

An impressive amount of data went into assembling this 147-page report. HP pride themselves on full transparency and this comprehensive report reflects that. Both positive and not so positive results are detailed, along with future goals, objectives and planned actions.

HP’s Sustainable Impact Report 2018 shows a deep understanding of their global impact and their desire to improve the wellbeing of our planet.

Through their global sustainability activities, HP demonstrates a truly considered approach to business and to the impact their activities, products, services and people are having on the planet.

By choosing to make sustainability activities a factor in your choice of managed print supplier, you will positively contribute to your own business’s environmental standards. This is especially important if you are in the process of being ISO certified or if you are already ISO certified.

Here we give you a brief overview of some of the more topical facts and statistics from the report.

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

“We measure success by how our actions and solutions help create a more sustainable future for our planet, people and the communities where we live, work and do business.”

 

Goal: Achieve zero deforestation associated with HP brand paper and paper-based product packaging by 2020.

Progress: 100% of goal achieved for HP brand paper. 65% of goal achieved for paper-based packaging.

 

Goal: Reduce Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 60% by 2025.

Progress: 68% of goal achieved

 

Goal: Use 60% renewable electricity in global operations by 2025

Progress: 78% of goal achieved

 

In March 2019, HP announced its bold vision for print sustainability – pledging to make printing with HP forest positive, carbon neutral and part of a circular economy.

Closing The Loop on Plastics

During the year, we developed innovations to reduce our use of virgin plastic bags.

We replaced the traditional bag on the Envy 7800 printer with thin shrink film, avoiding 79 tonnes of plastic bags. HP also introduced an innovative double layer plastic bag for the Envy 5055 printer. The solution bonds two bags (virgin plastic on the inside and RCP on the outside) to increase RCP use while maintaining the smooth surface of the virgin material that touches the product, to avoid scratching.

  • 21,250 tonnes of recycled plastic used in HP products
  • 34 million units of hardware repaired
  • 25 million units of hardware re-marketed / reused

In 2016, HP launched an ambitious program in Haiti to help tackle the growing challenge of ocean-bound plastics. In partnership with the First Mile Coalition and our supplier partners, we have now built a fully functioning ocean-bound plastics supply chain.

Through March 2019…

  • 716,000 pounds (325 tonnes) of ocean-bound plastic sourced for use in HP products
  • 795 income opportunities created for adults in Haiti
  • 100 children enrolled in school

Repair, reuse, and recycle products at end of service

Rapid innovation is increasing the urgency to move toward circular models where products stay in use as long as possible and materials are responsibly recycled and re-purposed at product end of service. As part of designing for end of service, we consider factors such as availability of spare parts, ease of disassembly, materials identification, and ability to separate materials. Our repair, reuse, and recycling programs help keep products in use, and at end of service, support responsible collection and processing to recover and reuse as much material as possible.

HP is using 3D printing technology to transform our own supply chain and to print selected parts for our own products. This improves speed-to-market, reduces costs and environmental impact and enhances customer satisfaction. 

Community Giving & Volunteerism

Digital Schools in Ireland, Northern Ireland & Scotland

We collaborate with the Digital School Awards to address the digital education gap and recognise leading schools. The Cybersecurity Initiative is helping Scottish Schools to teach pupils to navigate the digital world safely.

We have invested £3.7 million in schools in the UK and Ireland as part of our equipment trade-in programme and worked with corporate and other partners on a purchasing programmed for parents.

More than 600 HP volunteers worldwide at 12 sites participated in shoreline clean-up events to support World Environment Day and the HP Foundations 40 Days of Doing Good campaign. They collected nearly 2 tonnes of trash, including discarded plastic, hazardous waste, cigarette ends, tin cans and even bikes! We plan to continue this initiative annually.

  • Corporate Giving: $7.12 million in 2018
  • HP Foundation Giving: $4.34 million in 2018
  • Employee Giving: $2.07 million in 2018
  • Employee Volunteerism: 140,000 hours contributed by 6,400 employees in 2018
