At HPE, we believe that sustainable innovation is a powerful catalyst for change. Reporting our efforts regularly and clearly to customers, investors, and key stakeholders amplifies our commitment to sustainability. In addition, to promote higher standards across the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anticorruption, we endorse the United Nations Global Compact as a practical framework for the development, implementation, and disclosure of sustainability policies and practices.
In order to build a truly sustainable organisation, global companies these days acknowledge that the umbrella of their stakeholders extends further than ever before.
Chris Librie, senior director, strategy & communications, HP Living Progress, says that global citizenship has been part of HP’s DNA from the outset. “It was part of our foundational values,” he says. “However, it wasn’t totally embedded in the corporate strategy. In true Silicon Valley fashion, we were very decentralized.
We are committed to advancing the overall health and well-being of people, helping businesses and economies thrive, and strengthening the environment
