Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2017)

Here are some of the reasons why HP Canada Co. was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2017):

  • As one of the world's leading technology companies, HP Canada and its California-based parent company have continually challenged and raised the bar for its industry through numerous sustainability initiatives, from the "Design for the Environment" program which ensures environmental considerations are taken into account at the earliest stages of product development to the "Closed Loop" ink cartridge recycling program to recapture and recycle used cartridges
  • 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)
  • HP Canada's unique head office features a number of energy saving and environmentally-friendly features including motion-sensitive lighting, a rain-sensitive lawn sprinkling system, electric vehicle parking, state-of-the-art heating and air conditioning systems, and even a partial green roof -- the office is situated on more than 20 hectares of land, adjacent to an environmentally-protected ravine where the company and its employees have planted more than 26,000 trees and shrubs to enhance the surrounding woodlands
