Dell joins Climate Group

Dell is advertising newfound membership in The Climate Group, a non-profit organization nevertheless composed of major corporations such as Google, BP and Virgin, as well as governments such as those for California, New York City, Ontario and South Australia. The Group is aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, while simultaneously minimizing the harm to corporate profits.

Dell notes that it is the first computer company in the coalition, despite the fact that the Group is based in the US, the UK and Australia and has partnerships outside that realm. As a part of its obligations, Dell is promising to become carbon neutral in 2008, in terms of its offices, manufacturing and air travel. No mention is made of distribution though, and while the company aims to reduce its carbon intensities 15 percent by 2012, this is not the same as total emissions.
