Addressing Climate Change

It is in the best interests of business and society to address climate change – now. Changes in migration patterns, growing seasons, rising sea levels and the frequency and severity of extreme weather events are just a handful of the issues our planet is already facing. The pace and extent of these changes to our natural systems have far-reaching social, environmental and economic consequences.

At Dell, we believe the time to act is at hand. We need both mitigation and adaptations strategies, and this is not something any one company or government can tackle on its own.

Technology has a critical role to play in addressing climate change. We will engage public and private stakeholders, including those in our value chain of suppliers and customers, to understand and take actions to help society meet the challenges ahead. For example, we proudly signed the American Business Act on Climate Change pledge.

We also recognize the importance of sharing information. We have long reported to the CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), which serves as the world’s largest database of primary corporate climate change information. We ask our suppliers to do the same, and we’ve also asked all of them to have emissions reduction goals in place by 2020.
