Dell Technologies, a Global Environmental Steward

Dell Technologies, a global information technology solutions company, is also well known for its dedication to environmental initiatives. The company’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) buildings are recognized for relying on wind energy, including Dell EMC Oklahoma City’s campus, which is powered by 100 percent wind energy.

In addition to the company’s commitment to environmentally responsible facilities, Planet, one of Dell’s Employee Resource Groups, is dedicated to helping employees act on their interests for environmental sustainability and green initiatives. Composed of nearly 9,000 global members, this group helps to internally promote reduce, reuse and recycle across campuses by giving away free plants, as well as providing free computer recycling events for the community.

Last year, Dell created the Dell OKC Community Garden for team members unable to grow produce from their own home or apartment. Featuring 20, 10 by 10 garden plots, employees can create their own produce and flowers. Leftover produce is donated to organizations that feed the hungry. So far this year, Dell EMC OKC has donated 105 pounds of produce.

The company supports cultivation challenges by planting hardy crops and using drip irrigation to conserve water. To protect the oceans, Dell established Shore Up, projects dedicated to cleaning plastic out of the ocean. The majority of the company’s packaging is made of bamboo and mushroom to reduce the amount of plastic on the planet.

Sustainability is part of Dell’s culture, and the company works together to drive positive change on campus and in the communities where employees live and work. The company’s purpose—to provide technologies that drive human progress—fuels its passion for sustainability and informs all that the company does.
