Results establish sustainability as a new workplace standard for successful businesses, and identifies opportunities to advance sustainability in the office 
 
• 46 percent of survey respondents globally would only work for companies with sustainable business practices, while 61 percent believe business sustainability is mandatory 
• 58 percent said environmentally conscious practices are key to engaging future workforce
• HP invests $2 million to sustainable supplies and promoting a circular economy
 
Dubai, United Arab Emirates - May 19, 2019:   HP unveiled a new study underscoring the importance of sustainable business practices in recruiting, hiring and retaining top talent. It finds employees are more productive, motivated and engaged when working for an employer who is leading the charge in social responsibility. The global, 20,000-participant survey found that 61 percent believe sustainability is mandatory for businesses1. Of those interviewed, 56 percent believe that ignoring environmental impact in the workplace is as bad as ignoring diversity and inclusion. 
 
“This study reinforces what HP has long emphasised - social responsibility is a must-have for the modern workforce, and only appears to be growing in significance,” said Peter Oganesean, Managing Director of HP Middle East & East Africa,  “Yet the study highlights a concerning and growing dichotomy between the understood need for sustainable office supplies, for example with the false belief all ink and toner cartridges are recyclable.
 
Office Eco-Friendly Practices 
 
HP has been a pioneer in engineering ink and toner cartridges with recycled content. Working with Planet Partners over the last 27 years, the company has enabled customers in over 60 countries to recycle HP ink and toner cartridges for free. Since 2000, HP has utilised more than 90 million kilograms of recycled plastic into 3.9B HP Original ink and toner cartridges2, even diverting 325,000 kilograms of plastic from reaching the ocean – the equivalent of more than 25 million plastic bottles – and repurposing it into HP cartridges.   
 
Last month the company pledged to make every page printed forest positive, carbon neutral and part of a circular economy with innovation that helps protect the world's forests, reduces carbon emissions and uses more recycled materials. In 2016, HP achieved 100 percent zero deforestation associated with HP-branded paper, nearly two years ahead of schedule– marking a milestone towards the company's vision for a forest positive future. Plus, the company's paper-based product packaging zero deforestation goal is on track for 2020.
 
 HP Commits $2M to Sustainable Supplies
 
To further advance its commitment to a circular economy and more sustainable supplies, HP also announced today a $2 million investment to expand its ocean-bound plastic supply chain. The company will build a new plastic bottle washing line in Haiti that will allow it to convert locally collected waste into recycled material for use in HP products. This investment continues HP's longstanding commitment to diverting ocean-bound plastic and contributing to a lower-carbon, circular economy.
