Design for Environment

From design to end-of-life and everything in between, Dell actively applies sustainability thinking to the lifecycle of our products and services. This includes embracing the circular economy – not just in theory but by actually making it work for us and our customers. We aim to increase the longevity of our products, source materials in ways that drive the circular economy, and meet the rigorous environmental standards our customers expect.
