Supply Chain & the Circular Economy

Dell | Achievements in Circular Design and Sustainability
Monday is Earth Day, a day I typically take on the role of Chief Electric Bicyclist, generating power for our Earth Day celebrations at the Dell Technologies headquarters.

But beyond getting exercise, it’s also a day that we mark at Dell Technologies by teaming up to clean up our local environments. We have a record 60 events happening around the globe this year!

Supply Chain & the Circular Economy

Harnessing Mobile Technology to Train Supply Chain Workers
Dell has a large and dynamic supply chain, with supplier facilities located in many regions around the world and many suppliers involved at multiple tiers in the manufacturing process. We require all suppliers to comply with all applicable laws and recognized international standards, and also abide by the high social and environmental responsibility (SER) standards outlined in the Responsible Business Alliance Code of Conduct and Dell Supplier Principles.

Supply Chain & the Circular Economy

Boosting Local Economies by Supporting Diverse Suppliers
When World Wide Technology (WWT) first started reselling Dell computers in 1990, the minority-owned company had just seven employees in St. Louis. Today WWT is a global technology solution provider with $10.4 billion in annual revenue and more than 4,600 employees. And the company received the 2017 Dell EMC North America Partner of the Year Award.

Supply Chain & the Circular Economy

Pioneering the Use of Closed-Loop Recycled Gold in Our Products
Dell expands its closed-loop recycling program from plastics to now include precious metals, keeping these valuable materials out of landfills and in the economy.

Supply Chain & the Circular Economy

Opening a Window to Our Supply Chain Via Virtual Reality Customer Tours
Dell’s new virtual reality tour of our suppliers’ manufacturing facilities is one of the many ways we’re helping customers see further and deeper into our global supply chain.

Diversity & Inclusion

How Supporting Diverse Suppliers Supports Local Economies and More
For entrepreneurs, having a great product or service is only the first step toward success. The next steps include finding capital, connections, contracts and customers. For many woman-owned and minority-owned firms, gaining access to these vital resources can be a challenge.

Supply Chain & the Circular Economy

Come Take a Look via Dell’s Supply Chain Virtual Reality Customer Tours
Businesses face the same trends – and challenges – in demonstrating transparency with a growing number of stakeholders. Customers increasingly want to know more about their products, and we’ve seen this first hand at Dell: the number and range of the customer requests we receive is rapidly accelerating, especially about the manufacturing of our products.

Supply Chain & the Circular Economy

Fighting e-Waste with Dell Corporate Savvy and Art
A mix of Dell’s international e-waste recycling and the very expert Benjamin Von Wong’s artistic skills can make a big point about a big issue. E-waste is one of the big new plagues in the environment, and it MUST be managed well.

Dell Technologies Brings THE EXPERIENCE to SXSW 2018
Just as SXSW dedicates itself to helping creative people achieve their goals, so does Dell. From powering five Academy Award-winning films for visual effects, to helping musicians push the boundaries of live electronic performance, to enabling an entrepreneur to create a renewal in wallpaper popularity and anything in between.

Six Companies to Watch in the Future of the Circular Economy
The days of the linear economy are numbered. Businesses the world over are finding innovation and growth by striking out in a circular direction. More than simply doing “less bad,” we are seeing the advent of regenerative practices and net positive solutions – and that gives me hope.
