HP has a long-standing tradition of civic engagement. Our involvement in the political process and global public policy debate is a natural extension of our core values and we consider it an important, necessary and appropriate part of doing business.
One part of that engagement includes participating in the political
process in the United States through political contributions. HP
contributes corporate dollars to U.S. state and local candidates and
ballot measures where allowed. These contributions are consistent with
our policy positions and corporate political guidelines.
U.S. law prohibits corporate contributions to federal political candidates. However, eligible employees can make individual donations to the HP Political Action Committee (HP PAC). The HP PAC contributes to bipartisan campaigns for congressional candidates who share our policy views. Contributions to fund the HP PAC, a separate legal entity, are voluntary.
HP does not make political contributions outside the United States.
As part of its commitment to transparency, HP is pleased to provide the following reports
