Acting with integrity and respect for
human rights around the world.
We require production suppliers to directly employ
foreign migrant workers, an IT sector first.
Respect for human rights is essential to the way we do business and approach our value chain. We work closely with suppliers to protect workers and improve labor standards. In our own operations, we show zero tolerance for discrimination and promote a diverse, inclusive culture. Our promise to customers includes protecting their personal privacy.
Human rights policies and practices are embedded in all three pillars of our Sustainability Strategy – Environment, Society, and Integrity – and in our overarching HP Sustainability Policy. Our approach aligns with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and HP is a signatory to the UN Global Compact.
Across our global operations, we conduct risk assessments and due diligence on business activities with potential to impact human rights and swiftly remedy problems when they occur. We want to hear any concerns about rights abuses, providing an anonymous reporting channel for HP and supplier employees, customers, and others to file grievances and seek resolution.
Wherever we can use our global influence to mitigate alleged human rights impacts we do so. We collaborate with governments and peers in forums including the Global Business Initiative on Human Rights and the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC).
Strengthening workers' rights
HP is committed to protecting the rights of people employed in our supply chain. We pay particular attention to vulnerable groups including foreign migrant workers, students, and women.
In 2015, we continued to implement our industry leading Supply Chain Foreign Migrant Worker Standard, training suppliers in Southeast Asia and monitoring supplier compliance. To help combat human trafficking, we revised our relevant policies and recruiting processes in response to government amendments to the U.S. Federal Acquisition Regulation.
Technology use and human rights
The power and reach of IT advances society and improves lives. Such technology can also be used for unintended purposes or in contexts that may potentially impact human rights. HP abides by all relevant sanctions, restrictions, and embargoes in its business operations worldwide. When we identify possible human rights risks from business relationships, we use our due diligence process to guide our actions.
