We work with our suppliers, sharing our expertise and best practices, and striving to improve their capabilities. And, we work to make it possible for our suppliers to uphold the same high standards we set for ourselves. The nature of the supply "chain" — a shared network of interconnected companies and industries — highlights for Dell, the importance of industry collaboration to set strong supplier standards that create positive change.
We will continue to engage our suppliers to responsibly source the materials used in our products.
We are working with our supply chain to ensure they operate responsibly and ethically.
The benefits of working with diverse suppliers are immense and include strengthening our ability to more effectively reach our diverse marketplace.
