Acting with integrity and respect for
human rights around the world.
99.97% of active employees, including every senior executive,
completed a one-hour Standards of Business Conduct training course in 2015.
At HP, how we do things is as important as what we do. Integrity is the foundation of our business and our promise to customers and all our stakeholders. Beyond our own corporate values, policies, and codes of conduct we encourage and support ethical behavior by our suppliers, partners, and the broader IT industry.
Our Codes of Conduct
HP is committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations everywhere we operate. Our global ethics and compliance program is supported by open door reporting and world-class complaint investigation procedures. The following Codes of Conduct lay down ethical expectations for employees and other key partners.
Corruption is a business risk that undermines our values, disrupts fair competition, and threatens customer trust. HP has zero tolerance for corrupt behaviors, including bribery and kickbacks.
We require our employees, business partners, and suppliers to comply with all applicable laws and regulations including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the U.K. Bribery Act. Our Anti-Corruption standards include:
Anti-corruption Policy: outlines expectations for HP directors, officers, and employees worldwide. Where national laws are more restrictive, those rules apply.
Global Business Amenities Policy: details acceptable hospitality and other business amenities to or from third parties, and related approval processes.
To guard against corruption, HP also conducts strict due diligence of high risk regions and third party business partners. In 2015, we expanded these procedures to include controls related to sales intermediaries, suppliers, and lobbyists as well as rescreening of existing channel reseller partners.
Improving the environmental performance of our customers, operations, and supply chain
