We recently released our 2011 Dell Corporate Responsibility Report which outlines the key accomplishments we achieved over the past year.

At Dell, corporate responsibility is not just a report compiling statistics and awards. It’s about the way we operate as a company every day. It’s about creating stakeholder value, while being mindful of our planet and sustainable work practices at every step. It’s our teams around the world coming together to give back to the communities in which we live and work. And it’s the culture we create when we treat our colleagues with acceptance and respect.

Some key highlights from the report include:

  • Dell was named Newsweek’s 2010 Greenest Company in America;
  • Data center efficiency improvements: within a five-year time frame Dell server performance per watt improved 31X;
  • Recycled more than 150 million pounds of end-of-life computer equipment, a 16 percent increase over the previous year. Dell is on pace to recycle 1 billion pounds by 2014;
  • $3 billion investment with diverse businesses;
  • Perfect score on Corporate Equality Index of the Human Rights Campaign for seventh time in a row.

I look forward to speaking with many of you October 3rd at the SRI in the Rockies Conference in New Orleans, where I will be presenting.  As always, we welcome your feedback.
