Dell Joins The Climate Group

Last week, Dell Inc. (NASDAQ: DELL) became the first computer company to join The Climate Group, a global non-profit organization that works with business and government leaders to address climate change.

Joining The Climate Group offers Dell the opportunity to participate in The Climate Group’s Leadership Groups on Carbon Neutrality and Supply Chain, and to leverage The Climate Group’s working relationships with policy makers in government and its international reach into China and the Asia Pacific region.

"The Climate Group is delighted to welcome Dell as the first IT member of our coalition of companies leading on climate change issues," said Chris Walker, North American Director of The Climate Group. "Dell revolutionized the PC business, and we believe it can do similarly great things for the IT industry’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions."

Dell made the announcement during the "Challenges and Opportunities in a Carbon Constrained World" conference held at the Federal Reserve Bank in Houston.

Dell currently has one of the lowest carbon intensities in the Fortune 50 and has pledged to reduce that level an additional 15% by 2012. In addition, Dell has pledged carbon neutrality for company facilities, manufacturing operations and business air travel beginning in 2008.
