On May 8-10, HP participated in the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council (SPLC) Annual Summit in Denver. The conference was attended by approximately 400 purchasing agents, suppliers, non-profits and influencers interested in discussing and improving sustainable procurement.
As a gold sponsor, HP headlined a “circular economy” track that consisted of 5 sessions focused on circular economy principles and strategies. HP helped open the event with inspiring remarks about leadership in the circular economy.
HP also presented a workshop on Purchasing in the Circular Economy. HP also co-hosted 2 innovation accelerator roundtable discussions called Coming Full Circle: Purchasing in the Circular Economy.
HP won an Outstanding Case Study award for submitting a case study entitled Bringing Sustainability Full Circle: HP’s Circular Economy Journey which will be posted on the SPLC website.
The SPLC summit website is located at https://www.sustainablepurchasing.org/summit17/ As new members of SPLC, HP learned that SPLC is a valuable community for discussions and opportunities to influence emerging standards around sustainable purchasing.
