Engaging stakeholders and identifying priorities

For our Sustainable Impact strategy to succeed, we need to hear from everyone our business affects. Key stakeholders include suppliers, customers, peer companies, public policy makers, industry bodies, NGOs, sector experts, and others. We engage in ways that are most relevant to their objectives and operations, including partnerships, sponsorships, collaboration on industry initiatives, customer and supplier education, supplier capability building programs and audits, employee surveys, white papers – and more.

We conduct periodic materiality assessments, to review relevant environmental, social, and governance topics, reconfirm our long-standing areas of focus, and clarify and shape our Sustainable Impact strategy and investments. This enables us to focus on the areas where we can have the greatest positive impact, determine any gaps, and identify relevant trends and leadership opportunities for our business. We have set aggressive goals related to several of our most material topics, to manage performance and drive long-term progress.

Sustainable impact governance

At all levels of the company, starting with our Board of Directors, we embed Sustainable Impact throughout our strategy, policies, programs, and value chain. The HP Board of Directors’ Nominating, Governance, and Social Responsibility Committee oversees global citizenship policies and programs as well as other legal, regulatory, and compliance matters. Our executive leadership team, led by our CEO, has overall responsibility for Sustainable Impact as part of our business strategy. A team of executives, led by our Global Head of Sustainability and Product Compliance, set HP’s Sustainable Impact strategy and drives progress company-wide.

Rising standards of living and population growth worldwide present market opportunities for HP and other companies, while putting tremendous pressure on natural resources and the environment. At HP, we seek to decouple growth from consumption and drive progress toward a more efficient, circular, and low-carbon economy. We aim to deliver the most environmentally sustainable product and services portfolio in the IT industry so that our partners and customers can achieve more, with less impact.
