One of Dell’s primary goals is to minimize our environmental impact. This includes reducing the carbon footprint of our products through each stage of the lifecycle, from development to recycling.

In 2010, we started tracking the carbon footprint of some products, starting with the Latitude E6400 laptop. That and subsequent studies were calculated for multiple regions and according to industry standards for measuring a product’s total environmental impact, throughout its lifecycle.

Assessing our products’ carbon footprint shows where we can improve and helps our customers do the same.
