We have SO many great GreenDeal vendors at London Drugs, it’s always a near-impossible choice to pick just one to recognize. But HP has really gone above and beyond in the electronics sustainability world.
The Best Ink Cartridge Recycling Program
HP has developed a mechanized process to disassemble their ink cartridges and recycle the material, so that plastic from every HP cartridge returned gets included in new cartridges. Watch the video below as London Drugs Computers Merchandise Manager Cedric Tetzel explains how the program works.
Design for Recycling and ‘Closing the Loop’.
HP puts extra effort into the design of their electronics, so that they use recycled plastic in their manufacture, and are easier to disassemble and recycle at the end of their usable life. 48% of new commercial desktop products contained greater than 10% post-consumer recycled plastic content.
HP does a great job of measuring and reducing their impact world-wide.
The company has already achieved their goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from operations by 20% by 2020, (compared to 2010) They also scored 100/A for the second consecutive year in the CDP Climate disclosure and performance scores – the highest possible rating. HP scored a ‘Perfect 10’ for corporate social responsibility in The Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 for 2016. They also have initiatives to benefit communities, workers and reduce deforestation.
Congratulations, HP – you are the REAL Green Deal!
