Dell announces its carbon emissions goals and more renewable energy investments.
According to Dell’s spokesman, one of the biggest sources of greenhouse gas emissions comes from its electricity use. By investing in green power both directly or by purchasing renewable energy credits (RECs), Dell is telling the market that renewable energy can significantly reduce its environmental impact.
Dell has announced that it is now powering its Oklahoma office with 100% wind power. Of the renewable energy Dell uses, 35% is U.S. energy and approximately 20% is from global sources. So what else is Dell doing to become the greenest technology company on the planet? Here are a few of its initiatives and achievements.
- Requires primary suppliers to report CO2 emissions data during quarterly business reviews
- Recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its leadership in green power and moved up the ranks from No. 12 to No. 3 in 2008
- Was the first IT company to join the Carbon Disclosure Project’s Supply Chain Leadership Collaboration to help suppliers with their emissions reporting
- Offers a free recycling program in 18 states
- Changed to computer packaging that will eliminate about 20 million pounds of packaging material over 4 years
