Dell Joins The Climate Group
On Feb. 27, Dell became the first computer company to join The Climate Group, underscoring the company's commitment to environmental leadership, energy-efficiency, and carbon-neutral operations.
The Climate Group is a global non-profit organization that works with business and government leaders to address climate change and accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy.
Dell's climate strategy takes into account environmental impacts from supplier operations, company-owned and leased operations, and customer product use. Dell has one of the lowest carbon intensities in the Fortune 50 and has pledged to reduce that an additional 15 percent by 2012.
Dell has pledged carbon neutrality for company facilities, manufacturing operations, and business air travel beginning in 2008.
Joining The Climate Group offers Dell the opportunity to contribute to and gain insights from participation in leadership groups, leverage working relationships with policy makers in government, and extend its international reach into China and the Asia Pacific region.
The Climate Group is an independent, nonprofit organization that works with government and business leaders to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy. Its coalition of proactive leaders – from government, business and non-government organizations – has demonstrated that the emissions reductions needed to stop climate change can be achieved while boosting profitability and competitiveness. The group was founded in 2004.
