How our top vendors are doing their bit to be more sustainable every day
At Exertis, we believe in sustainability. We believe in doing our bit to make sure our planet stays cleaner, greener, and healthy for generations to come. And it’s important to us that our top vendors have this goal in mind, too. That’s why we’re exploring the way our industry’s key players are making more sustainable choices while delivering the technology that keeps the world moving.
Dell’s Progress Made Real campaign focuses on using more sustainable materials in the manufacture of their innovative device ranges and packaging. By 2030, Dell expect their operational emissions to be less than a third of what they were in 2010, to be sourcing 75% of electricity from renewable sources, recycling and reusing more products, and increasing the use of recycled or renewable material for both products and packaging.
With sustainably-designed products like the Precision 3560 and the Latitude 5320, Dell are making positive choices that benefit their customers and our planet.
