We wholly integrate environmental considerations into our business strategy because this results in better products. We manage our facilities and conduct our business activities to minimize environmental impacts and promote the welfare and safety of our employees and customers.

Worldwide, HP employs over 300,000 people in more than 170 countries. We recognize that the large size of our operations comes with large responsibilities. We are always striving to minimize our footprint, and have made HP operations a cornerstone of our commitment to environmental responsibility.
