Dell – For Planet and People Lifetime Achievement Award
Thursday, 16 February 2012
Today we would like to highlight our Lifetime Achievement award winner, Dell, Inc. in our For Planet and People Blog Series.
Dell has been a long-term partner with Carbonfund.org and Conservation Fund to run their Plant-a-Tree for Me program. The program allows Dell customers to offset the carbon dioxide emissions related to the use of their Dell products by helping to regrow and protect forests. One hundred percent of all customer donations directly support Dell’s nonprofit partners – The Conservation Fund and Carbonfund.org – in their quest to plant millions of trees that will help trap carbon dioxide as they grow and protect the precious resources of our planet. Dell has been consistently commended for their attention toward climate issues in the IT industry, in part due to the leadership of Michael Dell and the commitment of Dell’s Sustainability team. Carbonfund.org is pleased to present Michael Dell and the Dell Sustainability team with our annual Lifetime Appreciation award for their partnership now and into the sustainable future.
“We are delighted and humbled to receive this award, made possible in large part by the generosity of our customers whose donations fuel Dell’s Plant-a-Tree program,” said Bruno Sarda, Director of Sustainability Operations.
