HP is committed to leadership standards in environmental, health, and safety (EHS) performance. We aim to provide safe products and services, to reduce their impact on the environment, to conduct our operations in an environmentally responsible manner, and to ensure that our employees can work without injury at our facilities or other locations. Our EHS management system helps us achieve our EHS objectives at all sites. At its core is our EHS policy.
HP's internal EHS standards and management system are designed to achieve full legal compliance. We investigate any allegations of noncompliance with the law to determine the root causes and implement corrective action to help prevent recurrence.
HP manufacturing operations worldwide are certified to ISO 14001, the international standard for environmental management systems. Twenty HP locations are covered by the global certificate.
To ensure that we continue to meet our EHS objectives as we grow, we require newly acquired companies to implement our EHS management system as a part of their integration. In 2010, we brought our 3Com and Palm acquisitions in line with the system and our EHS Policy.
