HP is taking sustainability to another level at GITEX 2019
October 10, 2019

The company has a completely recyclable stand at GITEX.

HP has just emphasized its commitment towards a sustainable future not just by showcasing its line of sustainable devices but through their stand as well, which is completely recyclable. HP’s stand at GITEX Technology Week also showcased its line of products that push people to do more while consuming less.

In fact, HP’s Planet Partner Program has already been one of the company’s most successful sustainable initiatives. They’ve manufactured 3.4 billion ink and toner cartridges using over 88,900 tonnes of recycled plastic from recovered cartridges.

“At HP, sustainability is deeply embedded in our business strategy, our thinking, and our company culture. This clearly reflects on the products and solutions we are showcasing at GITEX this year. Locally, we have introduced some of the most sustainable products, partnered with local charities to help create a circular economy and successfully ran a great recycling campaign that we are extremely proud of. For us, GITEX is not only about displaying new technology – but also focusing on sustainable ones,” said Fadle Saad, Regional Manager for GCC, Levant, and Egypt.

Additionally, HP’s Managed Print Service (MPS) and Device as a Service (DaaS) offer a set of customizable solutions for recycling printing supplies and even hardware that has reached its end-of-life. It aims to help businesses optimize their imaging and printing infrastructure that actually showed a reduction in printing-related energy usage by 20-40 percent, paper waste by 25 percent and even printing costs by 30 percent.

After GITEX Technology Week concludes, HP’s stand will be recycled to make chairs and tables for schools.
