HP operates in more than 170 countries. We have long been a leader in global citizenship – it has been one of our seven corporate objectives since 1957. We fully embrace our social and environmental responsibilities, and we are committed to conducting our business in ways that positively impact society and the planet. Our Global Citizenship program covers a broad agenda, including governance, environment, and society.

During the coming decade, we intend to continue to focus on:

  • Enhancing environmental sustainability across the product life cycle
  • Building a leading human rights program
  • Driving strong and sustained social and environmental responsibility in our supply chain
  • Advancing an accountability approach to ensure respect for privacy
  • Addressing global health and education issues through social innovation
