  Hewlett Packard pledge welcomed


Friday 09 July 2004
computerUS-based computer giant Hewlett Packard’s recent pledge to recycle one billion pounds of electronic waste globally by 2007 has been cautiously welcomed by environmental groups, who called for the process to be carried out as safely as possible.

It is estimated that one billion pounds of computer-related waste – CPUs, monitors, printer consumables - equates to around 20 million computers.

"It’s encouraging to see that HP has combined recycling goals with concerns about raising social and environmental standards in the supply chain,” said Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition’s Ted Smith. “One billion pounds of recycling can do more harm than good if it is done in an environmentally or socially irresponsible manner.”

"We've found that most manufacturers couldn't provide recycling data for their U.S. programs or their recycling rates were below 2 percent. What's important is to compare the number of computers and printer supplies recycled by HP compared to the 76 billion in sales last year,” Smith added.
