Joins Initiative to Improve Conditions and Bring Opportunity to Workers at Truitier Landfill
Palo Alto, Calif., September 21, 2016 /3BL Media/ — Today at the 2016 Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting, HP announced it has joined a CGI Commitment to Action with Thread, Timberland, Team Tassy, and ACOP (Association des Collecteurs des Objets en Plastique) to improve conditions at the Truitier landfill in Haiti over a three-year period.
This year's Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting theme, "the future of impact," has me thinking about what we as leaders can be doing to future-proof our economy to create an even better world for the next generation. This is no small task. In the spirit of the CGI Mission, we must first take a step back and figure out what we can be doing today to help translate our big ideas into action. In my view, the answer starts with nurturing great talent to encourage innovation and giving back to the community to help solve our most pressing issues as a society.
