HP Partnerships

WWF Living Planet @ Work Founded with HP

HP collaborated with WWF to create something revolutionary: an employee engagement program that offers free guidance to hundreds of businesses on how to drive environmental sustainability within your organization.

We're not the only ones who think this partnership is cool. The Ivey School of Business published a case study of the partnership between HP and WWF Canada as an example of how successful Corporate-NGO partnerships are formed.

This partnership has also been highlighted in other publications including a thought leadership piece in the Globe and Mail and editorial in Alternatives Journal that spells out the need for qualified sustainability professionals, other articles in the magazine highlight HP’s practices and expertise in this space including the partnership with WWF. Yet again the partnership was featured, this time in an MIT Sloan Management Review blog. It doesn’t stop there, this story has turned into a TEDx talk inspiring students, in particular technical students, to think about careers in non-profits.

The Spring Things campaign is a fun and engaging workplace fundraising campaign in the spring season to help WWF Living Planet @ Work members make a significant contribution to conservation and engage their fellow colleagues. This annual campaign includes Polar Bear Week in February, Earth Hour in April, and the CN Tower Climb in May.

Climbing for a Cause

Each year, HP challenges employees to climb the Toronto CN Tower steps to support WWF Canada’s efforts to fight climate change.

To show their support, HP employees volunteered to do a Polar Bear Dip in freezing Lake Ontario for Polar Bear Week in February in support of WWF’s Artic Home program.
