Environmental sustainability at Dell is a year-long commitment. But as we celebrate this Earth Day, I’d like to tell you about a few of the ways Dell is putting its technology to work where it can do the most good for the planet.
At Dell, we’re committed to minimizing the environmental impact of our business operations. We also look at every stage of a product or service’s life cycle to find ways we can make them more sustainable; we want to create new possibilities for our customers to reduce their environmental impact as well.
A few concrete examples:
Beyond making our customers more efficient, our technology also is helping to advance their environmental missions.
The Green Belt Movement, which works to empower women and communities in rural Kenya by promoting healthy environments, uses Dell PowerEdge technology to develop geographic information systems to plan and monitor complex forest management projects and programs. RES, a global renewable energy developer, uses a Dell high-performance computing cluster to analyze wind speeds 20 times faster. And using everything from rugged Dell laptops to more sophisticated systems, forest carbon analysts at The Conservation Fund take samples and model, analyze and forecast forest growth.
This Earth Day, we’re also using tools on Causes.com to encourage people to join us in taking action for the planet. For every person who pledges to make one small change to their daily routine — by saving energy or reducing waste — Dell and The Conservation Fund will reinforce the impact of their commitment by planting a tree in the Upper Ouachita National Wildlife Refuge in Louisiana. Dell and The Conservation Fund will plant up to 30,000 trees: restoring habitat for wildlife, helping mediate the effects of floodwaters, and contributing to cleaner air and water.
