Today we announced our latest environmental initiative—Dell will become the first major computer company to neutralize the carbon impact of its worldwide operations. Carbon neutrality involves taking inventory of our total greenhouse gas emissions related to the operation of Dell facilities and implementing strategies to reduce and eliminate those emissions.
The idea for Dell to go carbon neutral was first posted the day after IdeaStorm launched, and since then, we have made a number of steps toward that goal (see below for previous ideas in action related to carbon neutrality and energy efficiency). But today’s announcement is by far our most bold step since this idea first surfaced on the site, and we appreciate the continued interest in this idea from the IdeaStorm community. Find out the details about our new carbon neutral program in Lionel's blog post, and you can always see Dell’s environmental efforts at www.dell.com/earth.
