HP introduces the Sustainable Impact Program for Partners to Emphasize Climate change Impact, Human Rights, and Digital Divide.
On February 2021, HP Inc. unveiled the HP Amplify Impact Program as the industry’s first partner assessment and training program that is targeted at enforcing significant change across the business’ three sustainable impact pillars.
Its impact pillars are–Planet (with a focus on climate change), People (its sole focus on social justice and advocating for human rights), and Community (to close the ever-expanding digital divide).
Partners that join the HP Amplify Impact Program pledge to work with HP to achieve these goals by assessing their own work practices across the three pillars and enjoy the benefit of tapping into HP’s extensive investments and initiatives.
As per HP’s Pillars, Amplify Impact program helps to empower partners to set bold, long-term objectives that drive positive impact worldwide. The program is on a mission to drive accountability throughout the IT industry by enrolling at least half of its HP Amplify partners in the voluntary Impact program by 2025.
