Janet Morris combines her firsthand knowledge of HP customers with her passion for the environment.
Janet is the Americas Small Medium Business Market lead for the LaserJet and Enterprise Solutions organization as well as an HP Eco Advocate. As an HP Eco Advocate, she is one of more than 400 employees in the Americas who publicly represent HP's commitment to the environment through speaking engagements as well as virtually through social media. "As I engage with HP small medium business customers and channel partners, I hear what's on their minds regarding environmental issues and opportunities. Sustainability is a topic that is coming up more and more," Janet explains. "I represent HP's environmental leadership position along with tangible information on HP resources, programs, tools, and solutions that can help businesses reduce environmental impact as well as become more sustainable."
Janet is an environmental advocate in her personal life too. In 2009, she successfully followed through on her pledge to abstain from buying new items for an entire year, except for a few personal necessities. "Just making small changes helps you create a big impact," she says.
Janet's commitment to environmental sustainability helped her stand out to win a spot on the international "Leadership on the Edge" Antarctica expedition in March 2011. The expedition was led by the 2041 Group's renowned polar explorer and environmental leader Robert Swan, OBE. The contest and member challenge were sponsored by the Corporate Eco Forum (CEF) in November 2010, across 80 of its member companies, which includes HP. Janet was selected from over 100 applicants, from 11 countries and across six continents, to win this incredible opportunity.
