The event celebrates partner Sustainable Impact achievements across six categories, including the Amplify Impact Global Leader Award, Sustainability Business Award, Business Excellence Award, Climate Action Award, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Strategy Award and HP LIFE Award.
South African partner, Introstat, has been recognised twice over with wins in the Global Leader Award and HP LIFE Award categories respectively. This is a huge milestone for the South African technology space, showing that the country is in no shortage of businesses at the forefront of sustainability efforts on a global scale.
The HP Amplify Impact program represents a first of its kind partner assessment, resource, and training program, leveraging HP’s own extensive sustainable impact investments and initiatives. To date, 100% of pledged partners have developed sustainable impact plans using the world’s first, automated, modular sustainability plan platform and exceeding initial targets.
“HP Amplify Impact partners understand that leading with Sustainability is not only good for the planet – it’s good for business, winning deals, and driving profitable growth,” said Yesh Surjoodeen, Southern Africa Managing Director at HP.
“We are thrilled to celebrate all the well-deserving partners, and especially our South African big winner, who went above and beyond to drive significant impact in their respective categories and in the process, reducing their customers’ footprint, while supporting HP’s journey to become the world’s most sustainable and just technology company.”

Based on HP channel partner feedback, new benefits have been added to continue to support partners in their Sustainable Impact journey. The new Global Good Community Project Platform connects partners with a curated series of projects offering volunteer and donation opportunities through NGOs around the world to empower partners to meet their sustainability goals.
Another new benefit includes additional features on HP’s Find a Reseller platform. These enhancements spotlight HP Amplify Impact partners to help purpose driven businesses stand out as customers look for resellers aligned to their values.
“As one company, we can have a meaningful impact,” said Surjoodeen. “When we empower our channel partners, we can accelerate change across the IT industry. South Africa is a bright example with several partners who have invested into sustainability by implementing beneficial initiatives in their organisations, completing, collectively, 1000 sustainability trainings that led to millions in sustainability sales deals. The Amplify Impact leaders we celebrate today are going beyond, creating positive, lasting impact within their local communities and for future generations.”
