Advancing Sustainability Goal
We will partner with our direct material suppliers to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 60% per unit revenue by 2030
Dell Technologies understands that part of our overall carbon impact on the environment includes carbon emissions that occur when our suppliers manufacture key components and provide vital services to us. Our emissions reduction target demonstrates our commitment to addressing climate change and meets the SBTi criteria for ambitious value chain goals, meaning we are in line with current best practices. We also continue to partner with suppliers on their efforts to set and achieve their own science-based targets.

We will partner with our direct material suppliers to meet a science-based greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target of 60% per unit revenue by 2030
MTCO2e of Scope 3, Category 1 GHG emissions per $MM
In FY21, our direct material suppliers reduced their greenhouse gas emissions by 3.7 MTCO2e per $MM compared to our FY20 baseline. This represents a decrease in GHG emissions of 7.7% per unit revenue (a 6.7% decrease in absolute emissions) as compared to our FY20 baseline. We attribute this decrease to our work to help suppliers reduce energy consumption, improve energy efficiency and source cleaner energy. Some of our 2020 initiatives included conducting an annual survey to understand energy management across our supply chain and hosting a training session for suppliers to learn more about energy efficiency.7
7 While not noted in our FY20 dashboard, our baseline is 47.1 MTCO2e per $MM. Supplier emissions numbers have been extrapolated to cover 100% of spend.
