Sustainability meets productivity with HP

We live in a time of huge technological advancement. We’ve watched as computers shrunk yet grew more powerful, and mobility surged as devices untethered us from desks and geographies. Looking back, it’s inspiring to see just how far we’ve come.

However, with these incredible advancements comes a nagging sense of eco-guilt. For many, our growing awareness of the environmental impact created by our beloved gadgets somewhat dampens the excitement of upgrading to the latest, shiniest device.

The case for sustainability and productivity in one

As the preference to purchase from sustainable brands increases, the onus is on businesses to take issues of sustainability just as seriously as consumers. Not just as an exercise in corporate box ticking, or even because it’s the right thing to do, but to invest in technology that truly considers the planet, people, and society as a whole.

However, being sustainable doesn’t mean you have can’t have the latest and greatest device features to enhance the way you work.

HP has always had a strong focus on sustainability – all the way from printing, to packaging, to its devices. It all started with recycling punch cards back in 1960, to now recycling 1.7 million pounds of ocean-bound plastic (and counting!) for use in HP products.

And they’ve not stopped there, with a focus on further developing their sustainability portfolio to continue reducing their carbon footprint, use less single-use plastic, ensure products are ethically produced, and to strengthen communities.

With next-generation performance, powerful processors, long-lasting battery and a versatile form, HP’s eco-friendly devices give the modern user everything they need to work seamlessly and productively from anywhere.

In this blog, I’ll show you how HP aligns your sustainability policies with your technology choices – combining all the power and versatility users demand, all whilst reducing your environmental impact.

HP ProBook 635 Aero G7 – built for conscious, mobile workers

HP Aero and materials

Introducing the new HP ProBook 635 Aero G7 – a lightweight, powerful and cost-effective device. Weighing in at just 0.99 kg and with a battery life of up to 23 hours, it’s ideal for keeping remote users productive, connected, and secure wherever they choose to work.

The all-metal design is made from recycled aluminium and magnesium making it durable, appealing and easy to sanitise.

Under the hood you’ll find the next generation of performance with AMD Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors and connected modern standby to get users back to work in a heartbeat. The inclusion of HP Sure View Reflect keeps sensitive data out-of-focus for the passer-by.

Finally, with Wi-Fi 6 and optional 4G LTE connectivity, users can work remotely with ease.

All this power is packed into an eco-friendly form including:

  • Whisper quiet keyboard with keys made from 50% recycled DVDs
  • A recycled aluminium and magnesium chassis
  • Over 62% of mechanical parts made from recycled materials
  • High efficiency power supply
  • Speaker box made in part by ocean-bound plastics and speaker enclosure made from 50% recycled materials
  • Moulded pulp packaging

Like the Aero G7, the Dragonfly G2 can easily be hygienically wiped down and includes HP Easy Clean.

It’s made for collaboration too – with optional 5G wireless broadband technology, crisp audio, stunning graphics and advanced security features including HP Sure Shutter and HP Sure View – so power users have everything they need.

The ultra-fast processor allows users to quickly edit and render on-the-go while minimising energy consumption. All this comes with HP’s advanced security features including HP Raid, HP Privacy Camera, HP Sure View Gen 2 and HP Sure Click.

HP Print – a sustainable future

As the world’s #1 printer supply recycler2, HP has always been conscious of the impact printing can have on the environment. What began with recycled print cartridges is now a continuous cycle of innovation, moving HP towards more carbon neutral print products that are supportive of a circular economy.

Take for example, the HP Tango Terra printer. It’s made with more than 30% closed-loop recycled ocean-bound plastic from electronics, certified net carbon neutral, uses HP ink cartridges made with recycled content, and comes in plastic-free packaging made from 40% recycled content.
