Debra Dunn, HP senior vice president of Corporate Affairs and Global Citizenship, says, "As we face growing concerns regarding electronic waste, HP’s objective is to offer customers around the globe a convenient and environmentally sound return and recycling service for HP products. We will continue to develop innovative recycling solutions in an effort to meet our aggressive recycling goal for the future."
HP says addressing electronic waste is one of its three global citizenship priorities. HP intends to reach this global recycling goal by expanding the programme to more customers and creating new, convenient ways for consumers to return and recycle used or unwanted electronic equipment in a convenient and environmentally responsible manner. Since HP Planet Partners was officially launched in 1991, the company has implemented a number of initiatives designed to increase customer awareness of the importance of recycling unwanted computer products.
The HP Planet Partners programme operates globally in more than 30 countries and seeks to reduce the environmental footprint of IT products, minimise waste going to landfills and provide customers with a convenient and environmentally sound end-of-life solution.
