This week HP introduced a partner assessment, resource and training program called HP Amplify Impact. With this program, HP aims to help partners do more to fight climate change, promote human rights and shrink the digital divide.
HP Amplify Impact will focus on 3 main areas - the company calls them "sustainable impact pillars":
> Planet: Fight climate change by driving toward a net-zero carbon, “circular” economy. But also create a portfolio of sustainable technologies, services and solutions.
> People: Promote human rights and social justice with programs that include diversity and inclusion, and racial equality.
> Community: Bridge the digital divide by empowering low-income communities with technology. Improve their access to education, jobs and healthcare.
Join HP Amplify Impact, and you’ll be eligible for training, sales tools, marketing assets, and access to HP programs that include the Sustainability & Compliance Centre and Planet Partners.
As a member of HP Amplify Impact, you’ll also be eligible for certifications and consideration in an annual awards program.
