DellDell has collected 1.4 billion pounds of e-waste since 2007 in what it says is the world’s largest technology recycling program by geography, according to Dell’s annual 2020 Legacy of Good plan.

Additionally, by identifying alternative materials and opportunities for material reductions, Dell has avoided 31 million pounds of packaging and saved $53 million since 2009, making progress toward its goal of waste-free packaging by 2020.

The report says Dell has reduced the energy intensity of its whole product portfolio by 30.1 percent since 2012.

    Question 2: When will Dell complete a ‘closed loop’ protocol?
    Question 3: How much plastic has Dell produced since 2013?
    Question 4: How much water has Dell consumed since 2007 or 2014, for a quick environmental metric?
    Question 5: Has Dell used the $53million savings towards a global plan to rid plastics from our oceans & soils?
    Final Question: As the main measurement metric is metric, can you tailor your imperial metrics to show metric quantities, so the greater global community may absorb a complete understanding of EL reporting?
