HP has announced it now boasts the ‘world’s most sustainable PC portfolio’ with 306 products made of environmentally-friendly materials in more than 19 countries.

The company suggests it now has 38 Gold and 268 Silver EPEAT-registered products, certifications based on sustainability criteria including product energy efficiency, recycled material usage, product longevity, design for end-of-life and product packaging.

The tech giant has also committed to using 30% recycled plastic across its personal systems and print portfolio by 2025 and including ocean-bound plastic material in all new HP Elite and HP Pro desktop and laptop products launching in 2020.

Until now, the firm has sourced more than 450 tonnes of ocean-bound plastic bottles for recycling and reuse – this means the equivalent of 35 million bottles have been processed and used in the manufacture of new products.

In an announcement, it notes: “Today, we offer recycling and reuse services in 76 countries that enable us to close the loop, keep materials out of landfills and support a more circular economy.

“We recognise that the bar is continually being raised for HP and other companies within our industry, as customers look for more sustainable solutions. At HP, we are committed to supporting the needs of our customers by delivering technological innovations that help protect the planet for future generations.”
