The HP Amplify Impact Program helps partners set ambitious long-term goals to have a positive impact. By 2025, HP aims to have at least half of its HP Amplify partners participate in the Impact Volunteer Program. Participants will be recognized through the annual certificate and awards program. The mission of the program is to advance responsibility across the IT industry to the following main pillars:
• The Planet: The pursuit of a fully sustainable, circular, carbon-free economy while creating the most sustainable portfolio of technology, services and solutions.
People: Empowering people to thrive and fostering a diverse, fair and inclusive culture (DE&I) through initiatives such as the HP Task Force for Racial Equality and Social Justice.

Sustainable Impact: A Business Commitment
