Last week, in a chilly Copenhagen, The United Nations kicked off its 15th Climate Change Conference – COP 15. As you’ll probably already know due to the scope of coverage surrounding this event, the summit is an opportunity for government officials, NGO's and industry organizations to work together in reaching an agreement on climate change following the Kyoto agreement. For Dell, it’s a unique opportunity to reinforce our climate policy and to tell our story about IT as a solution.
As Dell’s lead environmental sustainability strategist, I’m delighted to be a part of the team representing Dell and am joined by representatives from our local Sales team, Government Affairs, Communications and technical staff. All eyes really are on Copenhagen at the moment, with everyone hoping for decisive action to be taken so we can really make the low carbon economy a reality.
This is also a great opportunity for us to meet with a wide range of policy makers, customers, business partners and NGO stakeholders essential to supporting our sustainability strategy.
I’ve only been here since Wednesday, but already I’ve had the opportunity to attend a number of key events as both a participant and observer, with Thursday and Friday being particularly busy, but insightful days:
So as you can see, there has already been an incredible amount of activity and I look forward to the future opportunities this summit is going to bring to Dell. We have a huge chance here to reinforce Michael’s recent op-ed , communicate our green message, build and develop our NGO and industry relationships, and support current and potential customers in working together to find solutions to this critical issue. You’ll be hearing more from me in the coming days.

glad you are having a good time: Copenhagen will achieve nothing but more posturing. Personally as an owner of several Dell machines, I would be far happier if that same investment in people and resources was spent on customer support and resolution of product issues rather than greenwashing.
Couldn't agree more about how others are Greenwashing - which is precisely why we are there to demonstrate how we can add tangible value by delivering quantifiable efficiency.
sorry if my comments sounded a but strident: I have been dealing with a lot of closed minds on this issue the last little while! I appreciate your response and the intent which I now understand much better.
