HP is a technology solutions provider to consumers, businesses and institutions globally. The company?s offerings span IT infrastructure, global services, business and home computing, and imaging and printing.

It is widely acknowledged that the cost of doing business includes an environmental cost as every aspect business action results in some kind of impact on the environment. As one of the largest IT companies in the world, HP?s most significant impact on the environment is through its products. As such the company is committed to providing environmentally sound and sustainable products and services throughout the lifecycle of its entire product range as well as the way in which it conducts its business. For HP, sustainability means integrating long-term economic, environmental and social dimensions into the way we operate our business.

Addressing electronic waste is one of HP?s three global citizenship priorities. As an example, HP has set its goal to recycle 1 billion pounds of electronic waste by 2007. HP's other two global citizenship priorities are focused on raising social and environmental standards in the supply chain and increasing access to information technology.

Locally, HP is a responsible corporate citizen. Initiatives in South Africa include:
  • HP i-community
  • HP Nepad e-schools initiative
  • The HP Business Academy fast tracks HP?s Black Economic Empowerment resellers empowering them with the skills they need to compete successfully in the business environment.
