  • HP Canada's employees are a major factor in the company's long history of incorporating social and environmental considerations into its operations -- in Canada, the company maintains two formal green teams (the Environmental Team and the Environmental Compliance Team) as well as two employee-driven initiatives (the Eco Advocate Program and the Sustainability Innovation Volunteer Team)
