    billion HP ink cartridges have been manufactured using recycled
    plasticPALO ALTO, Calif., Nov  2010  today announced several milestones
    in the company’s push to deliver energy savings, decrease carbon
    footprint and offer products and solutions that enable customers to
    reduce their environmental impact.

    As part of these efforts, HP is:
    to reduce waste in its manufacturing, distribution and product
    development, enabling responsible purchase, use and recycling of
    products by customers. Offering ways to help customers reduce waste in
    their printing uses. Introducing ways to reduce waste through product
    packaging. Achieving industry-leading milestones in recycling and the
    use of recycled plastic.”HP is an environmental leader among global
    companies, and these achievements are important milestones in our
    ongoing efforts,” said Engelina Jaspers, vice president, Sustainability,
    HP. “Applying our rich expertise and know-how, we’re creating more
    efficient, low-carbon technology solutions that help our customers save
    energy, resources and costs.”Enabling reduction of waste and energy,
    reusing reclaimed materials and designing for ease in recyclability are
    among the key principles of HP’s environmental commitment.

    Reducing waste
    date, HP has produced more than 1 billion ink cartridges manufactured
    with recycled plastic.(1) Through this and other efforts, HP has pledged
    to use a total of 100 million pounds of recycled plastic in printing
    products by 2011 (cumulatively, since 2007).HP has developed
    manufacturing processes that use recycled plastics, including HP ink
    cartridges and plastic water bottles, in Original HP ink cartridges to
    deliver an estimated 22 percent reduction in carbon footprint and a 69
    percent reduction in total water use when compared with using virgin
    plastics in the manufacture of 1 billion Original HP ink cartridges.(2)
    Recycling efforts by customers and HP have kept approximately 1.3
    billion plastic bottles and 160 million HP ink cartridges out of

    HP is improving the efficiency of its recycling
    processes. The recycled plastic used in HP ink cartridges produced in
    2010 and beyond is estimated to reduce total water used in plastics
    production by up to 89 percent. And, it has up to an estimated 33
    percent smaller carbon footprint than virgin plastic in Original HP ink
    cartridges — even when accounting for the impact associated with
    collecting, transporting and processing used cartridges and plastic
    bottles.(2)HP’s dedication to manufacturing products with responsible
    materials has led to the development of: the planet’s first PVC-free
    printer,(3) the HP ENVY (100) e-All-in-One; products made with up to 35
    percent recycled plastic, like the HP Deskjet 3050 All-in-One; and the
    ability to recycle additional types of cartridges made with various
    plastic polymers through HP’s industry-leading “closed loop” cartridge
    recycling process.

    Enabling customer conservation
    HP offers
    ENERGY STAR(R) qualified devices in every aspect of its product
    portfolio, with products that reduce energy use, resulting in cost
    savings. Many of HP’s ENERGY STAR qualified products also offer
    automated two-sided printing, enabling customers to significantly reduce
    waste while printing.For enterprise customers, HP offers Managed Print
    Services (MPS). HP helped United Stationers, a leading North American
    wholesale distributor of business products, reduce its fleet of printers
    and copiers from 160 different makes and models to just a few HP models
    for reduced energy and supplies costs.

    Saving money with HP MPS
    was part of a corporate-wide initiative that United Stationers calls its
    “war on waste,” through which it has achieved 30 percent cost
    reductions. The company expects to create an additional 20 to 25 percent
    in savings through planned rollouts of further HP solutions. United
    Stationers spent 16 weeks evaluating vendors to implement a managed
    print approach and chose HP as the best collaborator for delivering
    savings.HP also is enabling customers who use retail photo solutions to
    benefit from waste reduction. A 2010 life cycle assessment revealed that
    the carbon footprint of HP Minilab printers was up to 30 percent
    smaller than that of silver-halide systems.(4) In one year, this enables
    a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by an amount comparable to up
    to 386 gallons of gasoline consumption or approximately 38,000 hours of
    LCD TV viewing.(5)If every silver-halide printer system worldwide were
    replaced with an HP Minilab, the result would be the equivalent of
    saving the carbon emissions of up to 65,000 cars per year.(6)HP is
    enabling small and medium business customers to conserve resources with
    products such as the HP Officejet Pro 8500A e-All-in-One, which delivers
    50 percent lower energy use and cost per page than competitive laser
    printers and yields an 80 percent reduction in packaging and supplies
    waste over the life of the printer.(7)

    Media designed with the environment in min
    plain papers with ColorLok(R) Technology yield excellent print quality,
    equal to many non-recycled papers. Customers can count on bright, vivid
    colors, dark black text and crisp graphics when using recycled plain
    papers with ColorLokTechnology. Because recycled papers with ColorLok
    Technology perform as well as many papers without recycled content,
    customers can reduce environmental impact without sacrificing print
    quality.(8)HP graphic arts customers benefit from the company’s HP media
    take-back program(9) and deinking work. For digital production
    printing, HP is working to improve the use of high-impact inks and the
    removal of these inks from media for responsible disposal of both ink
    and media.As a leader in the digital production printing space, HP is
    partnering with Stora Enso to conduct research on HP processes and
    materials. HP’s deinking research is part of ongoing collaborative
    efforts between HP and HP Labs, the company’s central research arm,
    along with leading paper suppliers, digital press manufacturers and
    research organizations.HP is now collaborating with UPM to investigate
    and implement best practices in coated sheet use and disposal. This is
    part of a large digital print deinking collaboration designed to provide
    digital media customers more robust solutions with reduced
    environmental impact.

    Innovations in packaging ( and spying )
    of HP’s consumer products are wrapped in reusable totes, offering
    packaging that is 99 percent reusable or recyclable(10) and allowing
    customers to reduce their use of plastic shopping bags in the future.In
    packaging its consumer printers, HP has replaced foam cushioning with
    recyclable pulp cushioning (where possible) and replaced plastic bags
    with reusable bags. In 2010, HP has seen significant reductions in
    packaging waste, avoiding the use of materials equivalent to more than
    300 million 6-ounce Styrofoam(TM) cups(11) and enough plastic to cover
    1,400 NFL football fields.

    In 2010, HP estimates that it used
    approximately 10.5 million pounds of recycled plastic in its consumer
    printers, which is equal to the weight of 1,060 African elephants.(12)
    Using recycled plastic enables energy and fossil fuel savings in
    comparison to manufacturing with virgin plastic material.Additionally,
    many large enterprise printing products now ship in ClearView packaging,
    which saves up to 147 tons of corrugated fiberboard per year. In place
    of a corrugated cardboard box and foam packaging, HP uses minimal foam
    supports and wraps the product in widely recyclable film, reducing the
    volume and weight of packaging by 70 percent.

    Continuing legacy
    to customer involvement, HP has achieved significant progress in its
    recycling programs and now offers HP Planet Partners return and
    recycling programs in more than 50 countries and territories around the

    In 2008, HP announced the industry’s first and only
    “closed loop” ink cartridge recycling process — an engineering
    breakthrough that enables the use of used Original HP ink cartridges
    returned through the Planet Partners program and other sources, such as
    recycled water bottles, in the production of new Original HP ink
    cartridges. In 2010, using recycled plastic instead of new plastic in
    Original HP cartridges is reducing fossil fuel use associated with HP
    cartridge manufacture, transport and recycling by up to 62 percent.(2)

    HP has expanded the number of papers it offers that contain certified
    fibers that meet a set of requirements for responsible or sustainable
    harvesting. Following last year’s introduction of Forest Stewardship
    Council (FSC)-certified Everyday Photo Paper, HP is expanding
    certification to its specialty paper portfolio, offering Programme for
    the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC)- and FSC-certified
    brochure and flyer papers as well as presentation papers for use with HP
    LaserJet or inkjet printers in North America.
