Hewlett Packard has implement environment sustainability practices to facilitate projects that will benefit the environment and maintain sustainable living globally. The implementation of these practices would have introduced initiatives aimed to reduce green house gas emissions and carbon footprint on the environment. An Example of this practice is that we have introduced a carbon calculator to measure the impact it has had on the environment and we have developed an SER program to create awareness of the green house gas emissions usage with technology. This tool will assist in monitoring energy consumptions in a real time measuring the energy consumption levels and the need to conserve energy. We have also developed an energy efficient plant that is environmentally friendly .(First)The design of the sustainable building plant is significant in that it uses energy efficient material recyclable material and renewable energy and has proven beneficial to Hewlett Packardâ€™s operations in reducing the risk of energy consumption costs globally. We will reduce the carbon footprint with the introduction of collaborative practices in technology and technology usage practice that address environment concerns and to ensure that environmental legislation in will not prevent our company from achieving its impact on sustainable practices. Environmental Initiatives developing products reducing the environmental footprint will include energy of computer and printer recycling waste programs. These environmental initiatives will reinforce the commitment of environmental concerns of CEO, environmental and technological teams and special interest groups. From the lessons learnt through the implementation of sustainable practices the benefit of energy consumption initiative to benefit the environment and global community. Benefits and Impact
Hewlett Packaged is committed to the proving transparent information related to the business labor and human rights practices accounting for its financial activities and corporate social responsibility actions in release of the corporate citizenship report listed on the United Nations global compact. The corporate citizenship report is transparent in the practices it promotes globally and is practiced by companies in many industries. The initiatives and practise implemented to the promote an ethical environmental free from human rights violations and a commitment to the fair dispute resolution policy including a dispute hotline created for student employed at Hewlett Packard. In the absence of labour laws across many regions globally, labour legislations need to align with the global standard of compliance in the fair treatment of employees. We learnt from this practice that this policy has raised legitimacy in using consistent global practises of managing labour concerns. We recognise that due to limited policies and practices within the Information Technology Industry, from these lessons we have constructed a recommendation for the local network. Benefits and Impact
Environment: Environmental emissions are reduce due to energy conservation and lowering the risk of carbon footprint impacting environmental legislation in applying energy efficient facilities and practices of recycling and waste management. Local Community: The board of members need to involve the minority groups of local communities through adult education programs and providing equal employment opportunities of disadvantaged communities and minority groups and employment of woman in association with wellbeing practices and empowerment. Shareholder: In considering environmental implications to protect its reputation HP, must take action to create energy efficient and innovative practices in order to proactively respond to the management of environmental disaster and to protect HPâ€™s reputation from legislative and financial implications towards loss of profits and customers. Special Interest Groups: Concerns in employment of woman in with special interest groups actively associated to welfare groups focused on improving the wellbeing of employed minority groups and society will improve the corporate branding recognition of a positive public image.
The recommendations in support of business practices will be challenging in the engagement and collaboration of business and government including social interest groups. CSR Practices can be transparent in presenting its financial and environment data including ethical practices in the corporate citizenship report for consideration across all industries.
