Living Progress at HPE Canada Partnerships
WWF Living Planet @ Work
Hewlett-Packard Company worked as a foundational partner with WWF to create something revolutionary: an employee engagement program that offers free guidance to hundreds of businesses on how to drive environmental sustainability within your organization.
We're not the only ones who think this partnership is meaningful. The Ivey School of Business published a case study on the partnership between Hewlett-Packard Company and WWF Canada as an example of how successful Corporate-NGO partnerships are formed.
WWF Canada – Spring Things Campaign
The Spring Things campaign is a fun and engaging workplace fundraising campaign in the spring season to help WWF Living Planet @ Work members make a significant contribution to conservation and engage their fellow colleagues. This annual campaign includes Polar Bear Week in February, Earth Hour in April, and the CN Tower Climb in May.
CN Tower Climb for Nature
Each year, HPE challenges employees to climb the Toronto CN Tower steps to support WWF Canada’s efforts to fight climate change. To date, HPE Canada has raised over $68,900 for this cause.
Polar Bear Dip
To show just how far they are willing to go for a cause they care about, Hewlett Packard Enterprise employees volunteered to do a Polar Bear Dip in freezing Lake Ontario for Polar Bear Week in February in support of WWF’s Artic Home program. In 2017, employees raised a total of $10,000 through this initiative.
WWF Canada Spring Things Leadership Committee
It's no secret that Canadians have strong ties to our spectacular environment. Yet, according to Statistics Canada, less than 3% of all charitable donations in this country go toward environmental causes. HPE Canada’s Chief Counsel Jim Vibert has joined the Spring Things Leadership Committee to raise the profile of environmental causes in the workplace.
Since 2014, more than 40 workplaces participated in the Spring Things campaign and raised close to $500,000 for WWF Canada’s conservation efforts.
