Dell reduced its facilities carbon footprint by up to 16 percent from FY08-FY12 and drove toward zero waste by recycling or reusing approximately 98 percent of its nonhazardous manufacturing waste.

Looking forward, as Dell's operational footprint represents less than 10 percent of its total opportunity to drive more sustainable outcomes, the company will focus in the next year on setting longer-term goals for helping its supply chain and customer base become more efficient.

-- In 2012, Dell achieved the ambitious goals set out in its 3Cs (cube, content, curb) packaging strategy by: reducing the size of packaging more than 12 percent, increasing the amount of recycled and renewable content in packaging up to 40 percent, and ensuring that up to 75 percent of packaging is recyclable at curbside. This work eliminated more than 20 million pounds of packaging material since 2008 and helped spur use of innovative and biodegradable materials such as bamboo and mushrooms.

-- Dell recycled more than 192 million pounds of end-of-life computer equipment last year, an almost 30 percent increase over the previous year, keeping the company on pace to meet its goal of recycling 1 billion cumulative pounds by 2014.

-- All removable media storage devices, memory and hard drives became BFR/CFR/PVC-free in FY12, and Dell offered BFR/CFR/PVC-free standard configurations of all Latitude laptop and XPS 13 Ultrabook(TM) products earlier this fiscal year, with more in planning. Though Dell has not yet fully achieved its goal of ensuring that all newly introduced personal computing products are completely free of BFRs and PVC, it remains committed to this materials transition. Also, the company supports the inclusion of such materials in environmental procurement standards and legislation that restricts substances of concern in personal computing products.

-- Dell added fresh air validation to an entire line of data center equipment, establishing that it can run in customer data centers under warranty at up to 113 degrees Fahrenheit (up to 45 degrees Celsius). This innovation allows many more Dell customers to avoid energy-intensive chillers and instead rely on fans or other solutions that take advantage of outside air.
