Dell became the first major computer manufacturer to commit to neutralizing the carbon impact of its worldwide operations. The company also announced a new program called “Plant a Forest for Me” that enables organizations worldwide to join together with Dell and share best practices, partner, and facilitate the planting of trees in sustainably managed reforestation projects. 

The founding members of “Plant a Forest for Me” include Dell, ABN AMRO, AMD, Ask.com, Salesforce.com, and WellPoint. Each company has committed to offsetting part of their carbon output by purchasing trees for Plant a Forest. Dell partners with The Conservation Fund and Carbonfund.org, non-profit organizations that facilitate the tree planting.

Carbon neutrality involves taking inventory of an organization’s total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and then implementing strategies to reduce and eliminate those emissions. To meet its carbon-neutral commitment for Dell operations, the company will drive additional energy-efficiencies, maximizing purchases of renewable power, and offsetting remaining impacts.

In June, Dell committed to an aggressive, long-term goal to be the “greenest technology company on the planet,” an initiative that includes teaming with “The ReGeneration,” people who care about the environment. The company’s climate policy focuses on minimizing both direct and indirect emissions impacts, including supplier operations and customer product use.

Dell is working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a member of the EPA’s Climate Leaders Program on an inventory of the company’s GHG emissions from U.S. operations.
