Now available in 43 countries around the globe, this partner assessment, resource, and training program provides 10,000 partners with the opportunity to join HP in its efforts to generate meaningful impact on climate action, human rights, and digital Equity.
The HP Amplify Impact program provides partners of all levels with training, sales tools, marketing assets, and access to HP’s Sustainability & Compliance Centre (SCC), HP LIFE and HP Planet Partners. Partners have shown tremendous interest in these resources with more than 1,500 partners have completed HP sustainability training and over 1,000 HP LIFE courses.
“We all have a shared stake in safeguarding our planet and having a positive effect on the communities we serve,” said Kobi Elbaz, GM of HP’s Global Channel Organization. “By partnering with our vast global channel ecosystem, we can more effectively scale our goals in forging a path towards a better future for all.”
In support of HP’s goal to become the most sustainable and just technology company by 2030, the HP Amplify Impact Program has trained, educated, and empowered 1,400 partners to drive change while maximizing opportunities with sustainability as a key competitive differentiator.
HP has set an ambitious goal of enrolling at least 50% of its HP Amplify partners in the voluntary program by 2025. To date, 20% of HP’s partners have signed the HP Amplify Impact pledge, exceeding the target of 10% for the first year of the program. In the Philippines, 30% of its managed resellers already signed up under the program and it targets to reach 40% until April 2022.
Features now available on the HP Amplify Impact Initiatives Hub include the industry’s first, automated, modular sustainability planning platform with new, advanced capabilities, including Carbon Footprint and 360 Diversity Equity & Inclusion assessments, along with toolkits designed to inspire community volunteer projects.
“What we want to do is help our partners unlock their business potential and opportunities to better serve their customers. For example, if a partner wants to build an e-commerce platform, they get additional incentives and we help them drive their capabilities to accelerate digital transformation while marching toward a more circular economy,” shares Christian Edmond Reyes, Philippines Managing Director, HP Inc.
