Chief Sustainability & Social Impact Officer
Ellen Jackowski is chief sustainability and social impact officer at HP. In her role, Ellen leads a global team that oversees the HP Sustainable Impact strategy and programs that focus on making positive, lasting impact on the planet, people, and the communities that HP serves.
Ellen brings more than 10 years of HP experience in a variety of corporate affairs and sustainability roles. Most recently, Ellen served as global head of sustainability strategy and Innovation, playing a critical role in defining and aligning the company around a unified sustainable impact strategy. She is recognized within HP and across the industry for advocating ambitious goals that drive innovation, immersing deeply in impact projects, and inspiring and empowering HP employees to incorporate sustainable impact into their roles.
Among her many sustainable impact achievements, Ellen led the program and partnerships to integrate the first HP Learning Studio into the Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan, helped drive the world’s most sustainable PC portfolio — including several world’s first products made with ocean-bound plastics — and helped establish HP’s global ocean-bound plastics supply chain in Haiti that supports jobs, childhood education and the health and safety of workers within the local community.

And she led the effort to integrate measurable sustainable impact targets into the business objectives for each member of the HP executive leadership team, which ties annual compensation to sustainable impact progress.
