Dell released its 2011 Corporate Responsibility report today, outlining the company’s progress in the areas of sustainability, corporate responsibility, giving and diversity and inclusion.
In addition to being named Newsweek’s 2010 Greenest Company in America, the survey found that Dell recycled more than 150 million pounds of end-of-life computer equipment, a 16 percent increase over the previous year, and is on pace to recycle 1 billion pounds by 2014. The Dell Social Innovation competition to promote social change in growing communities was expanded and committed $5 million over five years to the University of Texas at Austin to grow the program. And the company made DiverseBusiness.com’s list of the “Top Corporations for Multicultural Business Opportunities” as well as Working Mother’s 100 Best Companies list, among others.
“Whether it’s through our green efforts or giving programs, our company gives back in many ways responsibly and with integrity,” said Trisa Thompson, vice president, Corporate Responsibility. While we have made much progress, we have much more work to do to help people achieve their full potential and help us protect the planet.”
