How we use less plastic

Our goal is to eliminate 75% of single-use plastic packaging by 2025. Last year, we managed a 44% reduction compared to 2018—a further 25% reduction since 2020. Here’s how.

More recycling

We’re recycling more, and we’re using more recycled content.

Less packaging

44% reduction in single-use plastic packaging compared to 2018—a further 25% reduction since 2020.

Packaging innovation

Improved design and process for molded fiber packaging with our 3D printing technology, and shipped more than 150,000 HP product units using molded fiber.

We’re using recycled

Footnotes and disclaimers

  1. Post-consumer recycled is based on the definition set in the EPEAT standard for imaging equipment, IEEE 1680.2, and is expressed as precent of total weight of plastic.
  2. Forest First - HP works collaboratively with our partners including WWF and Arbor Day Foundation to manage, restore, and protect forests in many countries around the world. With HP+, every print - regardless of paper brand – is addressed through HP’s Forest Positive Framework to counteract risks of deforestation. HP brand paper is sourced only from certified responsibly managed forests or from recycled content. For other brands of paper, HP invests in forest restoration, protection or management projects in key regions sufficient to balance any paper used by HP+ customers that may not have been responsibly sourced.

  8. HP calculation based on aftermarket supplies waste consumption with HP LaserJet M208, M209, M211 and MFP M232, M233, M234, M236 printers using HP Black Original LaserJet toner cartridge 134A/X, 135A/X, 136A/X and 137A/X.
  9. As of October 31, 2021.
  10. Laptops manufactured with recycled metal material in product cover. Percentage of recycled metal varies by product.
  11. Based on HP's internal analysis. Saving about 729 tons of CO2 emissions. Production waste from post industry recycle process. Calculations based on HP Pavilion Plus 14 projected product life cycle volume and carbon dioxide emission savings. CO2 savings calculation based on comparing amount of virgin aluminum vs. recycled aluminum contained in product top cover, keyboard deck, bottom cover with recycled aluminum. Percentage of recycled metal varies by product. 
  12. HP brand paper and paper-based packaging for home and office printers and supplies, PCs, and displays are derived from certified and recycled sources, with a preference for Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certification. Packaging is the box that comes with the product and all paper-based materials inside the box.
  13. All HP brand paper is derived from certified sources; paper-based packaging for PCs, displays, home and office print, and supplies is reported by suppliers as recycled or certified with a minimum of 97% by volume verified by HP. Packaging is the box that comes with the product and all paper-based materials inside the box. Packaging for commercial, industrial, and 3D products, scanners, personal systems accessories, and spare parts is not included.
  14. Percentage of HP’s total annual product and packaging content, by weight, that will come from recycled and renewable materials and reused products and parts by 2030.
  15. Percentage of HP’s total annual product and packaging content, by weight, that comes from recycled and renewable materials and reused products and parts. 2021 data does not include the following products or packaging for these products: PageWide Industrial and 3D printing products; or personal systems accessories and print accessories sold separately.
  16. Recycled content plastic (RCP) as a percentage of total plastic used in all HP personal systems, printer hardware, and print cartridges shipped during the reporting year. Total volume excludes brand-licensed products and after-market hardware accessories. Total RCP includes postconsumer recycled plastic, closed-loop plastic, and ocean-bound plastic used in HP products. Personal systems plastic is defined by EPEAT® eco-label criteria. Subject to relevant restrictions on the use and distribution of materials destined for recycling and/or recycled feedstocks. 
  17. Product use GHG emissions intensity describes the performance of our portfolio, taking into account changes to product mix and business growth. HP product use GHG emissions intensity measures per unit GHG emissions during anticipated product lifetime use. These values are then weighted by contribution of personal systems and printing products to overall revenue in the current year. These emissions represent more than 99% of HP product units shipped each year, including notebooks, tablets, desktops, mobile computing devices, workstations, and displays; HP inkjet, LaserJet, DesignJet, Indigo, Scitex, and Jet Fusion 3D printers; and scanners. Although HP updated its calculation methodology in 2020 for printing-related product-use-phase GHG emissions, we continue to calculate this metric using the original methodology for comparability with past years.
