HP’s Bryant Named to Clean16
Lloyd Bryant, VP of HP Canada’s Imaging & Printing Group & Environmental Programs, has been named to the Clean16 program, Delta Management’s environmentally focused listing of clean capitalism, for 2012.
The program honours “outstanding contributors” to sustainable development and clean capitalism in Canada. Antony Marcil, former President and CEO of Forest Stewardship Council Canada (FSC), was also named to the Clean16. Both Marcil and Bryant were selected from over 300 candidates.
Marcil is recognized for generating a significant uptake of FSC-certified paper and printed products by the Canadian corporate and government markets. According to Delta Management, the number of Canadian FSC-certified sawmills increased by 746 percent and the number of manufacturers by 400 percent. FSC-certified forests in Canada have grown from 4.7 million to over 40 million hectares.
Bryant is primarily being recognized for his work in “extended producer responsibility” and HP Canada’s Green Advocates initiative. This is an employee engagement program that is now adopted by various HP operations around the world. He also co-founded an industry association, Electronics Products Stewardship Canada (EPSC), that promotes economic and environmental efficiency, as well as high standards in consumer electronics and IT industry end-of-life recycling programs in Canada. He is currently the Chair of the EPSC, which, to date, has helped manage 140,603 tonnes of end-of-life electronics through its standards and audit check process.
Bryant has also been listed as one of Canada’s 2012 Clean50. This is a collection of 50 individuals or small teams who have made the greatest impact on Canada’s long-term sustainability, whereas the Clean16 are the top leaders within specific industry categories. Both listings are based on research by Delta Management, Corporate Knights, and other business experts.
“I am honoured to have been selected as one of Canada’s 2012 Clean16,” said Bryant. “Sustainable development and environmental responsibility are important to me personally and a core part of how we operate at HP, where we believe that our investment in environmental programs and partnerships helps pave the way towards a more sustainable future.”
