Leading through alliances

HP works through alliances to extend our impact and multiply our efforts. In collaborating with others, we strive to share responsibility for social and environmental responsibility (SER) improvements and to be a catalyst for multi-stakeholder commitment and action.

Working with NGOs and other initiatives

To better understand local context, we frequently undertake capability-building initiatives in collaboration with local NGOs and other organizations. HP strives to bring all parties to the table and lead an open discussion to prevent a relationship from becoming adversarial. By engaging with NGOs, we have learned how to improve our programs and address key challenges in each region. One of our key collaborations is a multi-stakeholder capability-building initiative with the Foreign Investment Advisory Service, which aims to raise standards in the electronic sector concentrated in the southern region of China (see China region for details).

Working with governments

HP engages with governments to raise standards in our supply chain and work toward consistent application of local labor and environmental laws.

Working with our industry

Collaboration within our industry leverages the efforts of many individual organizations and companies to raise supply chain standards. Through industry groups, participants can share knowledge and resources, standardize tools and processes, minimize duplication of effort, and develop consistent approaches to the industry’s most difficult issues. When a supplier receives a consistent message from its various corporate customers in the same sector, it is more likely to pay attention. The Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition envisions that each company will act independently, using a common standard and tools, to ensure conformance with their suppliers.
