To be counted among the world’s leaders, a company must do more than deliver innovative, market-leading products and services and generate exceptional value for its shareholders. It must also be an exemplary global citizen.
For HP, that means our products and services and how we produce them must solve problems, not create new problems. Our decisions and actions must be in harmony with the communities in which we work. And our business standards and practices must uphold the values on which HP was founded. If we continually hold ourselves to higher standards of integrity, transparency and accountability, we will succeed in our goal to be the leading information technology company in the world.
Global citizenship is a companywide objective at HP, and each of our businesses and functions integrates it into their strategy. As the graphic below illustrates, our three overarching global citizenship priorities are supply chain responsibility, climate and energy, and product reuse and recycling. Other core programs include accessibility, Design for Environment, employee diversity, ethics and compliance, health, safety and wellness, labor practices, logistics, the environmental impacts of our operations, privacy, public policy, and social investment.
