HP’s commitment to Sustainable Impact at PacPrint 2022


HP has become an industry leader in sustainable operations and driving innovation to reduce its carbon footprint and environmental impact. Across its Print business, HP has a sustainable end-to-end approach – from supply chain responsibility, manufacturing, product design and materials to product and print end of life. 

HP has calculated the carbon emissions from its LargeFormat Printer booth at this year’s PacPrint and has committed to offsetting double the amount using high quality carbon credits in Australia. 

HP’s Print for the Future stand will be responsible for 28,809kg of CO2-eq emissions. The business will counter this with a 58,618kg CO2-eq offset via one of Australia’s top climate projects, the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor.
