Green Power Drives Dell's Agenda
Finally, what about employees?
It’s a key. One tool we deploy broadly is Employee Storm. Any employee goes to a common platform and can provide a very, very specific recommendation in terms of what actions we can take. Other employees can view it, weigh in and ultimate vote that recommendation and then determine how it fits into the company’s priorities.
This is an example of the easy things you can do, We have green teams all over the world that are focused on it and are driving embedded actions.
Take the average company cafeteria. It likely sells bottled drinks. What's the most effective way to recycle those bottles? Well, if you leave a little bit of fluid in the bottle and put it in the bin and if there’s too much fluid in those bottles you lessen the possibility of the entire bag being recycled.
Another example: One employee recommended that you get a discount if you bring in your own coffee mug and not buy one. We worked with our cafeteria contractor to implement that.
