How Dell’s Legacy of Good Plan is Good for Business

Topics in this article

Earth Day is a day to reflect on our impact on the planet. We think about how we better manage our natural resources for ourselves as individuals. We also consider how our solutions can reduce our customers’ impact, and how our teams might find new, more sustainable ways to do business.  

Last year we committed to 21 bold goals – as part of our 2020 Legacy of Good plan – to accelerate the ways Dell and our IT solutions help our planet, communities and people around the globe. We’re so proud to share that our plan and progress have been validated with kudos and awards including Environmental Leader Project of the Year, The Guardian Sustainable Business Shortlist, U.K. Green IT magazine- Manufacturer of the Year, and most recently ISRI’s 2014 Design for Recycling Award. We have the right strategy in place, and our teams across Dell are bringing it to life.

This morning, I had the chance to share stories of how our team members are contributing to Dell’s Legacy of Good. I also shared some easy ways we – as Dell team members and individuals – can do our part on Earth Day and every day. I thought I’d share some of our stories.

It is our teams that fuel us forward and help solve the greatest challenges confronting our planet. Doing good is good for Dell, and we look forward to sharing our progress and inspiring more bold commitments. 2020 will be a landmark year.
