HP Inc. announced the expansion of HP Amplify Impact to an additional 24 countries across Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific and Japan.
Now available in 43 countries around the globe, the first of its kind partner assessment, resource, and training program provides more than 10,000 partners with the opportunity to join HP in its efforts to generate meaningful impact on Climate Action, Human Rights and Digital Equity.
“We all have a shared stake in safeguarding our planet and having a positive effect on the communities we serve,” comments Kobi Elbaz, general manager of HP’s Global Channel Organization.
“By partnering with our vast global channel ecosystem, we can more effectively scale our goals in forging a path towards a better future for all.”
Launched one year ago in support of HP’s goal to become the most sustainable and just technology company by 2030, the HP Amplify Impact Program has trained, educated and empowered more than 1,400 partners to drive change while maximizing opportunities with sustainability as a key competitive differentiator. HP’s commitment to Sustainable Impact helped the company to win more than $3.5 billion in new sales in fiscal year 21 representing a greater than 3x annual increase.
