You can’t really miss Frances Edmonds in Canadian corporate sustainability settings. The head of sustainable impact at HP Canada is rather tall and dons a stern confident look, a signature angular platinum bob, and a lilting British accent. She also happens to be one of the industry’s pioneering environment champions.
“Hard to believe that it’s been 20 years. If you had told me that when I’d joined HP I wouldn’t have believed it,” Edmonds muses.
HP believes education is a human right, and technology can be the great equalizer. We are partnering with Education Cannot Wait, UNHCR and Learning Equality to bring tech-enabled learning to students in Uganda, including refugee learners, through a pilot initiative using HP School Cloud. HP School Cloud is a learning management system preloaded with content and curriculum, and a wireless router all built into one that students can access from any wifi-enabled device--without an Internet connection.
The new building promotes community, collaboration and innovation, with sustainability built in.

One year ago, Bonnie Honjas was riding in the back seat of a car in Oregon when a semi truck sideswiped her vehicle and dragged it down 700 feet of highway. The accident left her with nerve pain in her neck, left shoulder and arm.
Honjas tried everything from chiropractic medicine to traditional physical therapy to ease her discomfort. But nothing helped. A massage therapist, she was unable to work, making her even more worried that she might never heal.
HP Inc. is a company that I follow very closely. I covered the company extensively at CES 2019 this year and was impressed by the array of new, innovative displays it brought to its PC line (you can see my coverage here). It’s no secret that the company excels at delivering powerful PC offerings, but that’s not what I wanted to talk about today.
