Each year we report on material indicators from across our business. Some tie directly to the goals set forth in our 2020 Legacy of Good Plan, while others provide additional insight into other business indicators. We also assess our performance against the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) Standards guidelines, and you may find other measurement reporting within our GRI online index.

In September 2016, Dell combined with EMC. We have reflected this merger through combined FY17 Dell and EMC metrics. In some cases (such as emissions), we have also combined data for FY15 and FY16 per industry reporting standards. Additional FY15 and FY16 metrics for heritage EMC can be found in previous EMC CSR reports.

Calculated water withdrawals rose substantially between FY15 and FY16 as
a result of improved supplier reporting.
