Director, Product Stewardship, HPhttp://www.zwc.ca/speakers/John OrtizDirector, Product Stewardship, HP<div class="ExternalClassB14A611893A947E289B1923B73881332"><p>John Ortiz leads the global product stewardship organization for HP Inc., a $50B annual business. Ortiz's organization drives environmental design of computer and printer hardware products, ink and toner supplies, and paper products to minimize the impact of HP products throughout the product lifecycle. </p><p>Ortiz is currently championing circular economy thinking and action across HP's Print, PC, and 3D printing businesses. Recently his team has completed two closed-loop recycled polypropylene projects in over 40% of HP's inkjet cartridges, equal to approximately 5,000 tons of recycled resin annually. With the completion of this latest project, HP now uses recycled plastic in more than 80% of its ink cartridge products. Several other active projects are underway to incorporate recycled plastic into hardware printer products. Ortiz's team also focuses on product energy reduction and recently marked a milestone of driving an 88% energy reduction across HP's consumer printer products over the previous 5 years. Ortiz led the development of HP's Product Portfolio Use Phase GHG intensity reduction goal, an industry first, announced in 2014.</p><p>Ortiz lives in Corvallis, Oregon and enjoys hiking and biking in the Pacific Northwest.</p></div>http://www.zwc.ca/speakers/SpeakerPhotos/JohnOrtiz.jpg, John OrtizGP0|#9776d7bd-f62c-4845-9c95-2d5e21c60f6e;L0|#09776d7bd-f62c-4845-9c95-2d5e21c60f6e|John Ortiz;GTSet|#c31bcefc-bba8-4775-8a91-82f54b19d6e1;GPP|#a957a61d-489a-4511-b008-3b138e771d18
