New HP Amplify Impact training program aims to drive change in sustainability

HP has unveiled HP Amplify Impact, an industry-first partner assessment, resource and training program aimed at driving meaningful change across the planet (with emphasis on climate change); people (with emphasis on human rights and social justice); and community (with emphasis on bridging the digital divide). Partners that pledge to join the HP Amplify Impact program will work with HP to assess their own practices while tapping into the company’s extensive investments and initiatives.

“Our goal is to work with our partners to help drive a more circular and low-carbon economy, cultivate a more diverse, inclusive and equitable supply chain and improve the vitality and resilience of local communities,” said Christoph Schell, HP Chief Commercial Officer. “The strength and reach of our ecosystem are substantial and by bringing our partners with us on this journey, we can work together to create a more sustainable and just world.”

The HP Amplify Impact program helps to empower partners to set bold, long-term objectives to drive positive impact. HP aims to enrol at least half of its HP Amplify partners in the voluntary Impact program by 2025. Participating partners will be recognised via certification and an annual awards program.

The mission of the program is to drive accountability throughout the IT industry across the following key pillars:

• Planet: Drive toward a net-zero carbon, fully regenerative circular economy while creating the industry’s most sustainable portfolio of technology, services and solutions.

• People: Respecting human rights, enabling people across the value chain to thrive and cultivating a diverse, equitable and inclusive (DE&I) culture through initiatives such as the HP Racial Equality and Social Justice Task Force.

• Community: Empower communities through the power of technology. Help eliminate the digital divide that prevents too many from accessing the education, jobs and healthcare needed to thrive.

All HP Amplify partners can access HP’s world-class Sustainable Impact resources no matter where they are on their journey to a more sustainable world. HP will provide all HP Amplify partners with access to training, sales tools, marketing assets, and access to HP’s Sustainability & Compliance Centre (SCC), HP LIFE and HP Planet Partners.

In addition, HP will work closely with partners in select countries on the initial roll out of two distinct tracks:

• Catalyst: Catalyst members will take the HP Amplify Impact Pledge, participate in a sustainability assessment, and report sales opportunities. Initial roll out includes 19 countries: United States, Colombia, Brazil, Mexico, Turkey, UAE, Singapore, Philippines, India, Germany, UK, Sweden, Denmark, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, South Africa and Australia.

• Changemaker: The Changemaker track is optimised to assist partners that do not yet have a sustainability plan in place and commit to investing in the sustainability journey. HP will closely collaborate with and support Changemaker members in the development of a long-term sustainability plan which will put them on a path to be recognised as a business that is focused on creating meaningful change. Initial roll out includes seven countries: France, Italy, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Australia and select partners in the United States.
