• Since 2013 Dell Technologies has reduced the energy intensity in Dell PowerEdge servers powered by Intel® processors by 83%1.

        We are determined to meet the needs of today without compromising the ability to meet the needs of future generations. Embracing circularity as an emerging model of sustainability and is considered at every stage of the Intel® Xeon® processor-based PowerEdge Server life-cycle. Together, we are committed to achieving it through three strategic approaches:

      • Accelerating the circular economy

        Cutting down waste and pollution by reusing products and materials to reach our goal of becoming a circular business.

      • Protecting the planet

        Reducing the environmental impact of our solutions across the value chain – including working with partners who have strong environmental action plans themselves. For example, in 2020 alone Intel conserved 71 billion gallons of water with plans to be water positive by 20302.

      • Championing the people who build our products

        Maintaining ethical practices, respect and dignity.

        Through our partnership with Intel, we are driving a sustainable future forward through tech. From initial concept to use and eventual recycling, sustainability has been considered at every lifecycle stage of the Dell PowerEdge Servers with Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.


      • We are leaving the current ‘take-make-waste’ extractive industrial model behind in favor of circular designs that take waste out of the equation.

        Intel’s innovative disaggregated server design reduces e-waste and increases energy efficiency – helping to protect the environment and produce significant cost savings.

      • Modular design

        Intel's approach to disaggregated server design enables simplified separation, disposal and recycling of each component to reduce e-waste.

      • Reducing carbon footprint

        Through the optimization of production, distribution and end-of-life management, as well as making them more efficient.

      • Energy consumption control

        The OpenManage Enterprise Manager tool allows you to monitor the energy efficiency status of the servers, for greater overall performance.

      • Compliance with environmental rules

        On top of supporting important ECO labels and design standards, Dell Technologies has committed itself to a goal of net-zero by 2050.

      • Thermal Cooling

        Advancements in Intel processors thermal control deliver lower environmental impact and cost of ownership.


      • You know you’re making the right choice for the environment without sacrificing performance when choosing Dell PowerEdge.

    • Want to know more about PowerEdge Servers?

      The Dell PowerEdge server portfolio is built to advance innovation and help meet the demands of digital transformation through a secure infrastructure that supports diverse workloads and business objectives.

    • Studies show that 94% of businesses currently face entrenched barriers to digital transformation3.

      A Technology Rotation Strategy can help you overcome these obstacles while reaching sustainability goals and contributing to the circular economy. In fact, two 3-year renewable leases of an Intel-based server over 6 years have shown to save organisations 33% compared to buying one server and keeping it for 6 years4.
