Here's Progress, the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Way
by Heather Clancy
One cornerstone of Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s sustainability strategy, albeit somewhat self-serving, centers on encouraging the use of information technology for "social good."
The high-tech giant’s specific goal is to "improve" the lives of 1 million people by 2020, and it remains as committed to sustainability as ever, after a corporate breakup in 2015. But it certainly doesn’t expect to do this alone.
That’s where the company’s Living Progress Challenge, which debuted in December, comes in. The goal of the contest was to find mobile apps and web services that could advance human rights, environmental causes, financial inclusion and health care in emerging economies.
