Living Progress at HPE Canada Programs

Hewlett Packard Enterprise is committed to reducing our environmental impact—and yours.

Smart Commute Carpool Program

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Canada partners with Smart Commute to support alternative commuting choices, encouraging employees to walk, cycle, take transit, or carpool to the office.
Through our dedication to sustainable transit, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Canada has been designated a Smart Commute Gold Workplace.

HP Earth Insights

The destruction of tropical forests through manmade actions and natural disasters causes long-term and often irreparable damage to local ecosystems; directly impacts climate change; and threatens the well-being of animals, plants, and humans around the world. Through the HPE Earth Insights initiative, we worked with Conservation International (CI) to develop technology solutions that vastly improve CI's ability to monitor vegetation, species, carbon stocks, and climate in 16 tropical forests across 14 countries. This unique partnership demonstrates the power of IT to address one of the world’s most complex and pressing issues- tropical rainforest destruction.

Design for environment (DfE)

HPE’s goal is to improve customers' lives and work by providing smarter more efficient products.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise's Design for Environment (DfE) program dates back to 1992. Since then, our approach, tools, and processes have become more sophisticated, but they still support the same goal: to consider environmental impact in the design of every product and solution.

The DfE program has three priorities:

  • Energy efficiency. Reduce the energy required to manufacture and use our products
  • Materials innovation. Use less material, increase recycled and recyclable content, and use materials with lower environmental impact
  • Services. Design service models to reduce environmental impacts and increase product longevity through support (for example, care packs and upgrades) and new business models

Supply Chain Responsibility 

Hewlett Packard Enterprise supports human, economic, and environmental progress throughout one of the most extensive supply chains in the information technology industry. Our Supply Chain Responsibility program enhances the lives and protects the rights of the workers who make and deliver our products and services and extends to responsible sourcing of minerals at the very beginning of our supply chain.

Conflict Minerals

For more than a decade, the mining of minerals used to produce tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold (3TG) in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has been linked to the funding of armed groups waging a civil war in the country.


These metals are widely used in the components and assembly processes of electrical and electronic products and in many other industries. The possibility that Hewlett Packard Enterprise products contain metals that fund armed conflict in the DRC is unacceptable, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise is taking a leading role to establish conflict-free sources in the DRC.
