Global TakeBack Leadership

Global Take Back Leadership
Environmental responsibility is about more than creating an eco-friendly product or initiative. It’s about incorporating sustainability into everything we do, while using our technology and expertise to innovate on behalf of our customers, our communities and the planet. Dell is committed to creating the most effective global take back programs by being responsible for our products through legislative advocacy, innovative volunteer programs, demonstrated industry leadership, performance quality, education and effective end-of-life product management - all while protecting the environment and improving communities around the world.
 
Since 2007, we have collected more than 1.8 billion pounds of used electronics throughout 83 countries and territories, which is helping us meet our goal of collecting 2 billion pounds by 2020. Dell takes a truly global approach to our collection and capability building efforts, we continually look for unique opportunities to expand Dell’s consumer and business take back programs and create end-of-life solutions for our customers.

Working to turn e-waste into valuable resources. Working to turn e-waste into valuable resources.
In many developing countries, discarded electronics are not seen as waste but rather a valuable resource and an opportunity to earn income. Moving from an informal recycling culture to a formal model in Kenya required a combination of strong legislation, infrastructure development for collection and treatment, material and safety training for workers, and public education.
