Powering the Possible for the Environment
Powering the Possible is Dell’s commitment to put the company’s technology and expertise to work where it can do the most good for people and the planet.
Allocate financial and human resources to put Dell technology and expertise to work to provide solutions for some of the world’s most challenging environmental issues
Partner with one or more leading organizations whose primary mission is to conserve or quantify ecosystem services
“Natural ecosystems that grow and thrive are vital to the proper functioning of Dell’s business, including the well-being of employees, suppliers and customers. As a result, Dell has long been committed to conservation as part of a comprehensive approach to sustainable business practices.
The link between forests and climate change has long been clear to Dell. Dense forest canopies absorb heat, store vast quantities of CO2 and release billions of metric tons of water into the air every day, generating rainfall and regulating the earth’s climate. Dell’s efforts in this action area include the Dell Plant-a-Tree program that has raised more than $2.3M and enabled more than 500,000 trees to be planted since 2007, as well as Dell’s multi-part approach to mitigating climate change through forest stewardship.
Energy is a critical resource everyone relies on, including to keep technology running. Delivering breakthroughs in energy-efficient IT – from computers to data centers – helps reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, but also helps reduce stress on water supplies (40% of fresh water withdrawn in developed countries is associated with energy uses).
Helping protect our planet is not a job one company can do on its own. That’s why Dell is committed to partnering with organizations whose efforts to address key environmental issues can be amplified and multiplied by our technology, resources and expertise.
