HP Recognized as World Leader for Corporate Action on Ending Deforestation

HP has been identified as a global leader for the actions and strategies it is taking to manage its use of timber products more sustainably by CDP, which named HP one of only eight companies to earn a position on the inaugural CDP “Forest A List” for its deforestation management efforts. HP is the only information technology (IT) company to make this year’s Forest A List.

The CDP ranking recognizes HP’s leadership efforts to reduce the devastating effects of deforestation and help customers make responsible printing and purchasing decisions. These efforts include a goal HP set in 2016 to achieve zero deforestation in which all HP brand paper and paper-based product packaging1 will be derived from certified and recycled sources by 2020, with a preference for virgin fiber from certified sources of the Forest Stewardship Council. HP is also working with the World Wildlife Fund’s Global Forest & Trade Network-North America to reduce fiber sourcing risks for products and packaging, source more environmentally responsible paper and packaging products, and engage suppliers as partners.

“We are proud to be recognized by CDP for our ongoing efforts to responsibly and sustainably manage our paper-based products and packaging,” said Nate Hurst, Chief Sustainability & Social Impact Officer. “This recognition reflects our commitment to combatting climate change and deforestation by operating a more sustainable business throughout our value chain.”
