Nonhazardous waste15

HP generated approximately 86,400 tonnes of nonhazardous waste in 2011, a 14.5% decrease compared to 2010. This was due to ongoing programs to reduce waste at the source as well as the elimination of some operations that generated high volumes of material.

  1. 15 We have restated our 2010 nonhazardous waste data (from 79,800 tonnes as reported in the HP 2010 Global Citizenship Report) to ensure greater consistency with the methodology that we use to calculate other environmental data, including nonhazardous waste in prior years. Some segments do not add up to total due to rounding.
