|The idea that technology should be a driver of human progress is central to how Dell thinks as a company. We believe it can unlock health, happiness and prosperity – helping all people reach their full potential and share in the common good. It can fuel the imagination. It can help us heal the sick. It can even help us restore the environment and reveal the mysteries of science. Technology drives what’s good.|
Our Legacy of Good Plan captures this idea and spells out our commitment to put our technology and expertise to work where they can do the most good for people and the planet.
|First articulated in the fall of 2013, the Plan outlines our strategic vision for the year 2020 – a view of what social and environmental milestones we expect to achieve. These goals are intertwined with the business, informing our actions, offerings and relationships.|
The original plan outlined our path, including a series of goals bound by an end date of 2020. Among them, our 10x20 Goal is our most ambitious, aggregating the work and measuring an outcome that stretches across many of our aspirations while helping demonstrate what is truly possible at the hands of our customers and partners — all of us working together. The goal hopes to demonstrate that technology creates a net positive effect in aggregate, adding 10 times the amount of “good” compared to the footprint it creates.
Integrating EMC in September 2016 was an opportunity to become even more ambitious in our aims. Taking the best of the two legacy companies and updating our goals, we are confident in our journey to 2020. It continues to focus across our value chain, looking at the environment, our communities, our people and our supply chain, as well as progress against our 10x20 goal. We will continue to report annually on our progress – our successes and our challenges.
We encourage you to follow our progress and engage with us through e-mail or through Twitter at @dell4good and #LegacyOfGood.
