The latter is an "industry-first" scheme HP recently rolled to the UK to provide partners with sustainability resources and training.

"We recognise that to address sustainability we can't do it alone; no company can. So it's really encouraging to see so many partners join us on this journey and work together on a shared solution - because, ultimately, that's how we'll overcome the challenges we face," Dempsey said.

Dempsey characterised the 2020s as "one of the most consequential decades in modern business history".

"Our ambition is to become the most sustainable and just technology company," he said, adding that HP's sustainable impact agenda had helped it to win more than $1bn in sales in 2020.
