HPE Company Overview
We are a global technology leader focused on developing intelligent solutions that allow customers to capture, analyze and act upon data seamlessly from edge to cloud. We enable customers to accelerate business outcomes by driving new business models, creating new customer and employee experiences, and increasing operational efficiency today and into the future. Our customers range from small- and medium-sized businesses to large global enterprises and governmental entities. Our legacy dates back to a partnership founded in 1939 by William R. Hewlett and David Packard. We strive every day to uphold and enhance that legacy through our dedication to providing innovative technological solutions to our customers.

Unless otherwise specified or unless the context otherwise requires, we use the terms “Hewlett Packard Enterprise”, “HPE”, “the Company”, “we”, “us”, and “our” to refer to Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company and its consolidated subsidiaries. Terms or phrases that are italicized the first time they appear have the meanings given in Item 1.01 of Form SD. References to our websites and information available through these websites are not incorporated by reference into this Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report.
Our Responsible Minerals Program
HPE is committed to the responsible sourcing of minerals used in its products and expects its suppliers to conduct their worldwide operations in a socially and environmentally responsible and sustainable manner, pursuant to HPE’s Supply Chain Social and Environmental Responsibility Policy1 and HPE’s General Specification for the Environment.2 Both policies contain a section on the responsible sourcing of minerals.
We firmly believe that all people are entitled to basic freedoms and standards of treatment, and we embed respect for internationally recognized human rights within our Responsible Minerals Program. We commit to align our approach with the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, as described in HPE’s Global Human Rights Policy.3 Likewise, we expect our suppliers to uphold and respect human rights, guided by best practice set out in these standards.
As outlined in HPE’s Supply Chain Responsibility: Our Approach guide,4 HPE takes a systematic approach to sensing, understanding, and addressing risk. We re-examine and refine our program each year in light of our experience and emerging best practices.
HPE has been recognized as an industry leader for the company’s efforts to advance the use of responsibly sourced minerals. In recognition of HPE’s focus on combatting modern slavery in our supply chains and operations, which includes responsible sourcing of minerals, the Thomson Reuters Foundation awarded HPE the Stop Slavery Award twice in five years, in 2016 and 2021. In 2022, the Ethisphere Institute named HPE as one of the “World’s Most Ethical Companies” for the fifth year in a row, for “exemplifying and advancing corporate citizenship, transparency and the standards of integrity.” HPE also earned the highest ranking of KnowTheChain’s 2022 Benchmark for information communications and technology (“ICT”) companies, and the highest ranking among the world’s largest ICT companies in the 2022 Corporate Human Rights Benchmark.

Our goal is to improve the transparency of mineral sourcing within our supply chain, while striving to ensure that the tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold (collectively, “3TG”) used in our products have not benefited armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) and the DRC adjoining countries (collectively, the “Covered Countries”). Ultimately, we aim to improve conditions in and around mining communities in the Covered Countries and other Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas identified by the presence of armed conflict, widespread violence, or other human rights abuses. Because we believe it is important to avoid the economic and humanitarian impacts associated with an embargo of a particular region, we continually review and seek to responsibly source – and do not prohibit our suppliers from sourcing – from the Covered Countries and other Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.
Conflict Minerals Disclosure
Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry
We conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) to determine whether any conflict minerals in our 2022 products originated in the Covered Countries or were conflict minerals from recycled or scrap sources. To make this determination, downstream companies like HPE must obtain and review sourcing information on the entities reported to provide conflict minerals contained in or necessary to the functionality or production (collectively, “necessary conflict minerals”) of our products in the form of 3TG. We asked our direct suppliers to provide us with relevant information and to report to us the entities that were providing necessary conflict minerals to them or their suppliers. HPE’s supplier social and environmental responsibility requirements, which include responsible minerals due diligence and reporting obligations, are incorporated into contracts with direct suppliers. HPE engages in ongoing supplier outreach, education, and communications, addressing in particular the substance of our responsible minerals policies, and our expectations and objectives with respect to responsible sourcing.
Our 2022 RCOI included:
reaching out to 101 of our direct suppliers to inquire whether they are direct suppliers of materials, parts, components, or products containing necessary conflict minerals (“3TG Direct Suppliers”);
confirming that 87 of the direct suppliers are 3TG Direct Suppliers;
requiring that 3TG Direct Suppliers use the Responsible Minerals Initiative (“RMI”) Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (the “CMRT”) to collect and provide information from their supply chains to identify the entities recognized by RMI to be smelters, refiners, recyclers, or scrap processors of 3TG (“3TG facilities”); and, in relation to smelters and refiners (“SORs”), asking our direct suppliers to collect and provide available information on the origin of necessary conflict minerals;
engaging in regular communication through email and over the phone with 3TG Direct Suppliers regarding their CMRTs and addressing questions as necessary;
analyzing 3TG Direct Suppliers’ submissions for completeness and consistency, including sub-tier supplier response rate and adoption of a conflict or responsible sourcing of minerals policy;
specifying any deficiencies or feedback for our 3TG Direct Suppliers to address in their submissions;
providing further training, resources, and education, as necessary, to support 3TG Direct Suppliers in improving the quality and completeness of their CMRT;
obtaining acceptable responses from 3TG Direct Suppliers estimated to represent more than 98% of our 2022 spend with such suppliers;
based on the information provided by our 3TG Direct Suppliers, identifying 330 operational 3TG facilities that may process the necessary conflict minerals contained in the products provided to us;
encouraging 3TG facilities to participate in RMI’s Responsible Minerals Assurance Processes audit program or a similar OECD-aligned, independent assessment program such as the Responsible Jewellery Council’s Chain-of-Custody and Code of Practices Program, or the London Bullion Market Association’s Responsible Gold Programme when our 3TG Direct Suppliers report any not-yet-participating SORs in their CMRTs;

reviewing any information available through our membership in RMI on countries of origin or recycled and scrap sourcing for the 3TG facilities; and
engaging an external expert to directly engage with 3TG facilities and review other publicly available information to further assist us in evaluating whether or not certain 3TG facilities may have sourced from the Covered Countries or may source only conflict minerals from recycled or scrap sources.
For 2022, we have determined with respect to our products containing necessary conflict minerals, that we know or have reason to believe that some of the necessary conflict minerals from 3TG facilities originated or may have originated in the Covered Countries and may not be conflict minerals from recycled or scrap sources.
Accordingly, we conducted due diligence on the source and chain of custody of necessary conflict minerals from these 3TG facilities and have prepared the Conflict Minerals Report attached hereto as Exhibit 1.01.
A copy of the Conflict Minerals Report filed for the calendar year ended December 31, 2022 will be publicly available electronically for a period of one year at www.hpe.com/info/conflictminerals.
