Help save the environment with HP.
HP is constantly developing with the aim to improve the lives of people around the world. Companies are expected to use their resources to help find solutions for society's problems, such as the discrimination of specific groups of people, climate change, inadequate access to top-quality education, and the fight against diseases. To meet these challenges, we have to bring about improvements for our planet, humankind and the community we live and work in. That's why HP:
Introduced the first HP photo printer manufactured from recycled plastic parts of printers and other electronic devices in 2017.
Switched from transactional product sales to service models
Invested in industrial 3D printing, one of the key technologies of the fourth industrial revolution that has fundamentally changed development and manufacturing and increased sustainability.
You can also do your bit to protect the environment with the HP Planet Partners programme, through which you can easily return and recycle your empty Original HP ink and toner cartridges free of charge. When you choose Original HP supplies, you don’t just get outstanding print results. You also benefit from a convenient recycling programme that helps preserve the environment. At no extra cost!
- It’s free to take part in the HP Planet Partners programme with HP bearing the costs for the delivery of empty original HP ink and toner cartridges.
- It’s easy – the resources you need are all available online.
- Contributing to environmental protection: No Original HP cartridges returned through HP Planet Partners are ever sent to a landfill, and HP never refills or resells cartridges.
In 2016, HP joined forces with Thread International to commit to the First Mile Coalition, Team Tassy and the Association des Collecteurs des Objets en Plastique to improve conditions at the Truitier landfill in Haiti. Currently, approximately 200 children aged between 8 and 12 collect recyclable materials at the landfill, working every day in very dangerous conditions. The aim of this initiative is therefore to improve the lives of these children by giving them access to high-quality education, including over 200 grants, medical checks and training in the subjects of health and security.
As part of this commitment, HP buys recycled plastic from the raw materials collected at the Truitier landfill and uses it in their closed recycling programme for ink cartridges. HP is therefore opening up a new marketing opportunity that generates a source of income and also improves working conditions while also contributing to a more inclusive recycling management that delivers sustainable jobs, opportunities and dignity for the Truitier community.
