How does a company that has been practicing responsible citizenship for 75 years drive even more impact for people, the economy and the environment? By making its citizenship efforts and business strategy fully and inextricably intertwined.
HP calls it Living Progress—the way the company is creating a better future for everyone through its actions and innovations.
The framework helps the company, which has evolved nimbly as technology and consumer preferences shift, think about how they do business and how their people and technology come together to solve society’s toughest challenges.
In fact, Living Progress for HP today is a wholly integrated approach to business that simultaneously drives human, economic, and environmental progress. It’s how the company advances the overall health and well-being of people, helps businesses and economies thrive, and works to strengthen the environment as they grow.
There are big challenges facing our world today, including a rapidly growing population, effects of climate change, economic instability, and global health crises. But challenges present opportunities for action and innovation by companies. And with the talent and resources at their disposal, businesses can make a positive impact in a more scalable—and often innovative—manner than other institutions.
During the week of June 2, 2014, HP will explore how best to address some of these challenges with other leading companies and thought leaders gathered in the HP Living Progress Exchange at Sustainable Brands 14, in San Diego, Calif. Each day, the group will explore key issues and brainstorm solutions to help advance human, economic and environmental progress.
