Dell is now powering its 240,000 square-foot Oklahoma City campus with 100% wind power. The company is partnering with Oklahoma Gas and Electric for this agreement.
The company also plans to further reduce its worldwide facilities' greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2015. The reduction will be achieved through aggressive energy efficiency, on-site renewable energy and partnerships with utility providers.
‘Integrating green power into our operations wherever and whenever possible is a key environmental and business strategy,’ says Dane Parker, director of environment, health and safety at Dell. ‘It's critical that our industry take a leadership role in the transition to a green economy. Aggressive energy efficiency and renewable power targets are essential.’
Dell now sources about 35% of its U.S. energy use from green power and approximately 20% globally. The company is continuing to purchase enough green power, verified emission reductions and renewable energy certificates globally to cover its total electricity use.
