Neckarsulm, 31 March 2023 – Two of HP Inc.’s inaugural Amplify Impact awards go to the Bechtle Group. The prizes are recognition of the sustainable impact achievements of HP’s partners across six categories—winners were honoured at HP’s Amplify Partner Conference in Chicago. The Global Business Excellence Award went to Bechtle and the Climate Action Award for Southern Europe went to Bechtle subsidiary Inmac Wstore in France.
With Bechtle running in a field of all global partners, HP honours Germany’s largest IT system house for its efforts in doing sustainable business, highlighting in particular Bechtle’s extensive sustainable action and objectives on an international scale. HP Amplify Impact is an extension of the HP partner programme that provides training and resources based on HP’s own sustainable impact initiatives. All partners enrolled in the HP Amplify Impact programme have developed sustainability strategies for their organisations.
As part of the HP Amplify Impact sustainability programme, Bechtle successfully participated in assessments and workshops to develop innovative projects. In 2022, over 100 employees took part in face-to-face and online sustainability trainings offered by HP, earning Bechtle a Catalyst 4-Star Partner certification.
Bechtle has also received the Climate Action Award which recognises the partners with the best action plans to shrink their carbon footprints. Bechtle subsidiary Inmac Wstore in France raked in the award in this category for South Europe.
With its Amplify partner programme, HP calls on the power of community. “As one company, we can have a meaningful impact,” says James McCall, Chief Sustainability Officer at HP. “But when we empower thousands of channel partners, we can accelerate change across the IT industry. The Amplify Impact leaders we celebrate today are going beyond, creating positive, lasting impact within their local communities and for future generations.”
