In a bid to curb global warming and attendant climate change, Hewlett Packard (HP), leading computer manufacturer, says it will attain zero deforestation by 2020.

In its 2015 sustainability report, which is in line with the United Nations’ sustainable development goals (SDGs), the company made the resolution that all HP brand paper and paper-based product packaging will be derived from certified and recycled sources by 2020, with a preference for virgin fiber from certified sources of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

“Climate change is the most challenging environmental issue of our lifetime,” said Nate Hurst, HP’s chief sustainability and social impact officer.

“HP is committed to being an environmental steward; therefore, we continue to measure and reduce the impact of our products, operations and supply chain activities.

According to Forest 500, only eight percent of companies have an overarching zero or zero-net deforestation commitment.

According to HP, this goal highlights ongoing efforts to help customers make responsible printing and purchasing decisions that lower the environmental impact of their operations.

This zero deforestation pledge also reflects the breadth of actions the company is taking to address the effects of climate change.
