HP's Chris Librie Explains Living Progress for 2015


This post is sponsored by HP. Opinions are my own. 

Chris Librie leads strategy and communication for HP Living Progress.  We've been following the evolution of Living Progress for a few years now at TriplePundit and have had the opportunity to talk to Chris on a number of occasions.  What's new this year, as outlined last month by Jen Boynton, is an increased focus on governance and stakeholder engagement, as well as a very clear explanation of the human, environmental and economic progress that HP has made.

We're particularly impressed with the latter as it demonstrates a very literal commitment to the triple bottom line. In this video, shot on location at HP's Palo Alto, California, headquarters, Chris outlines a few examples of the company's triple-bottom-line commitment to sustainability. Chris discusses worker’s rights, their commitment to building local economies through partnerships with organizations like Kiva, and the incredible improvements in data center efficiency that HP is leading.
