More species of plants and animals live in the forest than any other land habitat. 1.3 million people depend on forests and trees for things like employment and forest products. This is why HP is partnering with World Wildlife Fund to restore, protect and conserve 200,000 acres of forest in China and Brazil.
HP, WWF partner to launch HP Sustainable Forests Cooperative
Today, at the World Economic Forum’s Sustainable Development Impact Summit — also taking place in New York City this week — HP Inc. announced its next steps in creating a forest-positive future for printing with longstanding partner and conservation leader World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
As one of the world’s foremost technology companies, HP has a well-deserved reputation for innovation, creativity, and performance. Yet each of these values extend far beyond the company’s diverse offering of products and services, and inform the HP approach to one of the most pressing issues of our time: sustainability. Over the past decade the company has developed a three-part approach to sustainability that targets the three key areas of planet, people, and community.
Partnering with World Wildlife Fund, HP is committing to the restoration, protection and conservation of 200,000 acres of forest, an area equal to the size of New York City. As part of the 5-year agreement, HP will also support WWF’s efforts in developing science-based targets for forests, estimating carbon and nature co-benefits of forest restoration and improved forest management. The two major forest restoration and management projects mark the first within HP’s Sustainable Forests Cooperative.
HP announces it has recycled more than 1 million pounds of ocean-bound plastic bottles in Haiti; HP commits to including ocean-bound plastic material in all new HP Elite and HP Pro desktop and notebook computers launching in 2020
NEW YORK CITY (Sept. 25, 2019) /3BL Media/ – HP Inc., a member of NextWave Plastics, announces today the launch of the HP Elite Dragonfly, the world’s first notebook with ocean-bound plastics. The HP Elite Dragonfly is the world’s lightest compact business convertible, weighing less than one kg. Its speaker enclosure component is made with 50 percent post-consumer recycled plastic including 5 percent ocean-bound plastics.
NEW YORK CITY – September 24, 2019 - /3BL Media/ – On September 23, 2019, UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka and HP Vice President and Managing Director for Africa Elisabeth Moreno signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to expand digital learning opportunities for women and girls in five priority countries: Senegal, South Africa, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Morocco.
This week, HP launched its new Elite Dragonfly laptop. Even though its low weight and specs are a significant move forward compared to earlier models, it deserves attention for another reason. As HP claims, it is the world’s first PC made with “ocean-bound” plastics—plastics collected from river-sides, beaches and shores that would otherwise end up in our oceans.
At HP, we aspire to create a world without waste. From our supply chain, to our operations, to our technology and service offerings, we are transforming our entire business for a circular, low-carbon economy.

It’s a decade from now, and you’re stable in the ICU after a recent heart attack.
Your doctor harvests some of your stem cells while a 3D printer outputs a drug-impregnated stent that has been designed specifically for the dimensions of your heart valves. Meanwhile, nurses prepare an injection of your cultivated stem cells and factors that trigger tissue regeneration.
