Recycled or Renewable Resources used in Products
This Action aligns with the following Calls to Action from the Circular Economy Action Agenda for Electronics:
1. Incentivize and support product design for circularity
This action supports the achievement of the Dell Technologies Advancing Sustainability Moonshoot Goal where, by 2030, more than half of Dell’s product content will be made from recycled or renewable material.
Through Recycled or Renewable Resources used in Products, Dell aims to increase recycled, renewable and closed-loop materials used in Dell products, namely Recycled Carbon Fiber, Closed loop plastics, Closed loop hard drive magnets, Closed loop aluminium in hard drives, Bioplastics made from tall oil (a byproduct from the paper making process).
In FY2021, 3.9% of the material used in Dell Technologies products was made from recycled or renewable material content. This represents a 0.4 percentage point increase compared to the FY2020 baseline. During 2021 Dell Technologies is investigating the use of sustainable steel with the aim of increasing the recycled steel content in their products.
