• ESG Frameworks

    We consider internationally recognized frameworks and guidelines

    • At Dell Technologies, we’re constantly working to improve and enhance our ESG reporting. One of the key aspects of our reporting is the consideration of internationally recognized frameworks and guidelines.

      2021 GRI Standards Content Index

      We’ve used the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) for reference for many years, and with our FY21 social impact reporting, we have worked to enhance our use of the guidelines.

    •  

      SASB Index

      We consider and report to the industry-specific standards for technology and communications hardware and software established by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB).

      WEF Index

      Dell, alongside 25 other companies, was one of the initial signatories of the recent initiative in 2020 by the World Economic Forum (WEF) to align and focus corporate environment, social and governance disclosures. As part of this, Dell has committed to reporting on the WEF framework’s core Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics, which offer a set of 21 universal, comparable disclosures focused on people, planet, prosperity and principles of governance.


    • Other framework reporting

    • We follow the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) in our climate change-related reporting. In 2020, we carried out a scenario analysis in alignment with TCFD’s guidance that is detailed in our CDP climate change questionnaire, section C3.1b. Additionally, our GRI Index provides mapping of GRI disclosures to TCFD’s recommendations. 

    • Another new element in our reporting this year is the addition of qualitative information on human capital, which is included in our FY21 10–K report, starting on page 12. For Dell Technologies, committing to report on metrics that matter most to our stakeholders is a continuation of something we’ve understood for a long time: A sustainable, successful company has to deliver value on multiple fronts and transparently disclose its performance to its stakeholders. We plan to draw from these metrics to guide the content of our future ESG reports.
