Companies reviewed for this honor are working to reduce energy consumption in IT equipment and are using technology to conserve energy and lower carbon emissions.

“Many of the organizations recognized in our fourth annual Top Green-IT issue have woven energy-saving initiatives into the fabric of their IT strategies,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief, Computerworld.

As a company that maintains a strong focus on customer needs and delivering effective, personalized IT solutions, Dell knows that saving energy helps customers get more out of their IT environments.  Dell’s goal is to deliver the highest quality and most energy-efficient products and solutions with the least impact on the environment.

Dell’s sustainability focus is concentrated on efficiently managing its own operations, developing  innovative energy efficient products and solutions for customers, shipping products with sustainable packaging materials, and providing  world class recycling options that make it easy for its customers to be green.
