Supply chain responsibility

Supply chain responsibility goals

2011 Train more than 13,000 workers (cumulative) in HP's Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) Code of Conduct labor rights.

Progress: Achieved (HP reached over 16,800 workers by the end of 2011.)
Launch predeparture training for suppliers and schools to address the emerging issue of recruiting new hires from vocational training schools.

Progress: Achieved (In 2011, over 9,000 graduates and almost 4,000 student workers completed pre-departure training.)
  Expand public health training, including the HERproject, anti-discrimination training, and Hepatitis B prevention, to an additional 20,000 workers.

Progress: Achieved (HP reached 50,000 new workers in 2011.)
  Increase social and environmental responsibility (SER) awareness and introduce capability building to 25 nonproduction suppliers in each of China and India.

Progress: 21 nonproduction suppliers joined capability building programs in China and 10 suppliers joined in India.
  Suppliers representing 50% of high-risk production spend will report on key performance indicators.

Progress: Achieved
2012 Transparency
Promote supplier SER ownership and transparency by engaging with suppliers representing 90% of final assembly spend to develop strategies and/or participate in training for publication of Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) based annual corporate social responsibility reports. (See Supplier list for information on which suppliers currently publish GRI-based reports.)
  Outreach
  Advance outreach efforts by formalizing our supply chain SER partnership with multistakeholder programs and/or governments in high-risk areas.
  Promote worker rights awareness and grievance mechanisms in emerging supply chain regions.
  Performance management
  Extend the reach of our highest-priority supplier improvement programs by requiring 75% of high-risk production suppliers (by spend) with working hours major nonconformances to report on key performance indicators.1
  Expand our audit program by increasing the number of supplier audits by 40% from 2011 levels and reaching 850 cumulative audits.
  Expand the scope of our nonproduction audit program by performing audits in new geographic regions.
  Standardize auditor capabilities by ensuring 100% of HP lead auditors are trained in the EICC-Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) Labor and Ethics Lead Auditor course, and pursuing certification of all HP lead auditors to the International Register of Certified Auditors (IRCA) EICC-GeSI Auditor Certification.
  Promote conformance to SER standards further down in the supply chain by validating that 75% of high risk production suppliers (by spend) have SER programs in place with their suppliers.1
