Quotes“Dell has taken an approach all companies need to follow: it is critical to set time-bound goals to address environmental impacts not only in company operations, but also throughout its supply chain and through customers' technology use. We hope Dell's portfolio-wide energy goal will catalyze companies within its sector and beyond to do the same.” – Mindy Lubber, President of Ceres ”This plan is ambitious and bold, but so are the Dell team members who will ensure we achieve each goal. They are the thousands of researchers, engineers, experts and employee volunteers who have enabled us to become the first company to provide free electronics recycling and an industry leader in energy efficiency and sustainable packaging. Now, their collective expertise and entrepreneurial spirit will help us develop ways to expand and measure the ripple effect of IT on the planet and society.” – Trisa Thompson, Vice President of Corporate Responsibility, Dell
