We are committed to helping our customers recycle responsibly, recovering 2.8 billion pounds of products since 1987. More than 75% of our ink cartridges and 24% of HP LaserJet toner cartridges are now manufactured with “closed loop” recycled plastic.1 Our remanufacturing programs give IT hardware, such as servers, storage and networking products, a new lease of life, reducing environmental impacts from disposal. We only recycle products that cannot be reused.
I am looking to:
Strengthening our communities and enabling
the sustainable development of society.
