At Lifespan, we recognize environmental stewardship as an important component of our business. We are committed to implementing sustainable practices at every point of our process with the end goal of helping to minimize corporate pollution and contribute to a greener future.
We take pride in being a leader in responsible I.T. recycling, and creating an environmentally-conscious system surrounding our products. As we strive to offset environmental harm from product discarding, we look to HP as setting an industry standard for all corporations:
HP accounts for recycling in its design process, and the ease with which their products can be recycled. As it stands, HP has recycled “the equivalent of 8,000 blue whales, or 3.3 billlion pounds of material that otherwise would have gone into landfills.”
Closed Loop Recycling:
HP’s system of sustainability ensures their efforts in helping to combat the growing issue of corporate pollution. In establishing a closed loop recycling process, HP can direct their focus on reusing materials in the manufacturing of new products, thereby counteracting much of the harm these products have on the environment upon their discarding. By 2025, HP aims to incorporate 30 percent of recycled matter into its products.
As proven by HP, company culture starts at the top. David Packer, one of the founders of the company, was dedicated to working towards a more sustainable future – both for HP and the rest of the world. The goal: “develop a plan to close the loop from design to delivery to disposal in order to eventually achieve 100 percent reuse.”
Although companies like HP are making a meaningful impact on our environment, we all have a part to play in creating sustainable business processes. We need to work collectively to reduce pollution, and part of that comes from being willing to share our programs and procedures.
