Computer maker Dell says its FY14 Corporate Responsibility Report details a strong start to its 2020 "Legacy For Good" plan. The Legacy For Good initiative sets a rather lofty goal: "The good that will come from our technology will be 10x what it takes to create and use it." In FY14, Dell says it commenced establishing a framework for working with customers, suppliers, consultants and industry partners to develop models for measuring this goal. The company also made solid inroads in slashing its greenhouse gas impact; reducing emissions from its facilities and logistics operations by a combined 8 percent and putting Dell on track to meet its 2020 goal.
In terms of renewable energy, the company sourced more than 35 percent (263,000,000 kWh) of its our purchased energy needs from renewably generated sources in FY14- an increase from almost 23 percent in FY13. The 2020 goal is 50% and Dell intends on reducing the energy intensity of its product portfolio by 80%. By the end of FY14, 21 Dell facilities purchased 100 percent of their electricity needs from renewable sources; up from 16 facilities in FY13.
Dell notes it was one of only eight organizations nationwide to receive a 2013 Green Power Leadership Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for purchasing green electricity. "Our commitment is to run our business responsibly, ethically and in the best interests of the global community," says Chairman and CEO, Michael Dell. "This is more than just reducing the energy you need to run the technology; it’s about the broader benefits technology enables for our customers—building a lasting legacy of good."
