Dell Plans Carbon Neutrality By Next Year
Dude, you’re getting carbon-neutral. Sooner than you thought.
The computer maker Dell announced Wednesday that it will speed up plans to achieve complete carbon neutrality, with an eye towards completing the process in 2008, the Associated Press reported. Dell had originally planned to achieve neutrality a year later.
To do so, Dell will purchase carbon offsets, use more energy-efficent light bulbs, and requiring environmental standards for its parts suppliers. A Dell spokesman told the AP that the company has already spent $5 million on the efforts so far.
