US tech giant, Dell Technologies, has announced it expects to source 75 percent of electricity from renewable sources across all Dell facilities by 2030 — and 100 percent by 2040. The company also unveiled its 2030 Progress Made Real plan it says is “grounded in the belief that technology and data combined with human spirit are, and will always be, positive forces in the world.”

“Unlocking the power of data will advance humanity more than any other force over the next decade,” said Michael Dell chairman and CEO, Dell Technologies. “We are committed to making that power broadly available to communities around the world so we can all move forward together.”
Over the next decade, Dell Technologies “will use its global scale, broad technology portfolio and expertise to yield meaningful and measurable impact on society and the planet.”
By 2030, the company has stated it plans to; recycle an equivalent product for every product a customer buys; lead the circular economy with more than half of all product content being made from recycled or renewable material; use 100 percent recycled or renewable material in all packaging; drive a comprehensive science-based climate program, setting emissions goals across facilities, supply chain and operations to customer use of its products including partnering with suppliers to meet a greenhouse gas emissions reduction target of 60 percent per unit revenue by 2030.

“We have a great responsibility to apply the full power of Dell Technologies to transform lives and society,” said Karen Quintos, chief customer officer at Dell Technologies. “By combining our technology portfolio, global scale, team member talent and customer partnerships, we can drive significant positive impact. Our 2030 agenda is comprehensive and deeply embedded across the business. The moonshot goals stretch us to go far beyond incremental change. In some cases, we’re still working to uncover how we’ll get there – but we know that significant change and innovation starts with deep commitment.”
