HP Takes the Circular Economy to the Next Level
For a company that has been recycling its hardware and toner cartridges since the 1980s, moving to a circular economy was not that big of a leap for printer and personal computer leader HP Inc. Now the company says it is determined to build new, circular supply chains and lead the industry on incorporating post-consumer plastic in its products and keep that waste out of the oceans.
“Our commitment to the circular economy stretches back a really long time,” Nate Hurst, Chief Sustainability and Social Impact Officer at HP Inc., told TriplePundit. “Long before recycling became mainstream, we were thinking with that mindset. Our engineers get very excited about the circular economy and want to be leaders in this space.”
