For decades HP has worked to manage its environmental impact by adopting environmentally responsible practices in product development, operations and supply chain. In a world being reshaped by climate change, volatile energy prices and growing scarcity of natural resources, the company strives to be a global leader in reducing its carbon footprint, limiting waste and recycling responsibly.
