“HP’s commitment to the environment will gain considerable momentum in the region due to our extensive print cartridge recycling partnership with the DIC, the Middle East’s leading Information and Communication Technology cluster” says Amin Mortazavi, GM, Imaging and Printing Group, HP Middle East. “HP Middle East shares with DIC a vision of a Dubai where waste is minimised and recycling opportunities are maximised. I thank the team at DIC for helping bring this vision closer to reality.”
Malek Al Malek, MD, DIC and Dubai Outsource Zone, says: “the DIC has consistently supported and facilitated the technology industry in fostering the latest innovations in an environmentally protective landscape. At our anniversary and marking HP’s 10th year presence in DIC, we will once again fulfil our commitment to the environment in partnership with HP.”
In the framework of their 10-year business association, HP and DIC are accelerating their combined efforts to promote the HP Planet Partners programme, which provides free and convenient return and recycling services for Original HP printing supplies. The DIC community is comprised of more than 1,400 IT companies and a workforce of more than 25,000, a fertile target to enhance the area’s overall environmental success.
The HP Planet Partners programme is available worldwide in more than 50 countries, regions and territories. Since the program’s inception in 1991, HP has recycled more than 320 million HP print cartridges worldwide, representing HP’s efforts in reducing the environmental impact of printing.
