Furthermore, HP has recycled 70 million apparel hangers and 3.8 billion plastic bottles to date, helping to divert on average more than 1 million water bottles per day from landfills," the company statement said.
Commenting on HP’s commitment, Fadle Saad, regional manager for GCC, Levant and Egypt said, “At HP, sustainability is deeply embedded in our business strategy, our thinking and our company culture. This clearly reflects on the products and solutions we are showcasing at Gitex this year. Locally, we have introduced some of the most sustainable products, partnered with local charities to help create a circular economy and successfully ran great recycling campaign that we are extremely proud of. For us, GITEX is not only about displaying new technology – but also focusing on sustainable ones.”
