HP recently announced expanded recycling solutions that will help EMEA customers reduce the environmental impact of their printing and benefit from the quality of original HP printing supplies.
In the movement towards more sustainable printing, HP asserts that it is continuously working with manufacturers, retailers and non-governmental organisation (NGO) partners to create solutions with reduced environmental impact — from the design and manufacture of products to their use and end-of-life recycling.
“We are keen to provide recycling options for our customers in the Middle East to address sustainability issues and cater their needs,” said Kees Verton, Manager Printing categories, HP Middle East. “HP offers unique solutions for recycling that reaffirms our commitment to customer success,” he added further.
According to the company, its leading recycling programme called HP Planet Partners lets customers recycle used Original HP cartridges as part of a “closed loop” plastics recycling process. To date, customers worldwide have recycled more than half a billion HP ink and LaserJet toner cartridges with HP Planet Partners.
HP Planet Partners is free and available to customers across 34 countries in EMEA. It is simple to use, beginning either with a visit to www.hp.com/recycle or an HP Authorised Retail Collection location.
HP’s groundbreaking “closed loop” plastics recycling process uses plastic from recycled cartridges and other post-consumer sources to create new Original HP cartridges. Company data reveals that, to date, it has recycled 1.71 billion pounds (776,000 metric tons) of electronics and Original HP print cartridges around the world. It has also kept 280 million cartridges and more than 2 billion post-consumer plastic bottles out of landfill. As the world’s largest provider of information technology (IT) infrastructure, software, services and solutions, HP is in a unique position to respond to the challenge of reducing energy use and waste.
