GreenEvery day, you have the opportunity to make greener choices, but when choosing technology, you don’t want to compromise on cost, performance or reliability. At Dell, we believe you shouldn’t have to, which is why we strive to ensure that people and companies don’t have to make trade-offs to be green.

We make this a reality by delivering practical products and services that make an impact on real environmental issues, because at the heart of green is the powerful idea that better ways are possible. Better ways to use time, money and resources. Better ways to live, work and succeed in our world. Working with customers and suppliers, we’ve achieved significant milestones in recycling and packaging greener products and solutions within our own operations and supply chain, including those listed below.
