Dell has been listed as the greenest firm in America out of a list of 500 public companies by Newsweek.
In its list of Top 500 greenest companies in the US, Newsweek has placed Dell at the top spot with 100 points, closely followed by Hewlett-Packard on the second spot with a score of 99.32 points while IBM got the third slot, but was still named the greenest among the top 100 in the world.
Michael Dell, chairman and CEO of Dell, said in a press release: “The efficiencies we can all achieve through the use of greener products, solutions, services and programs should be an integral part of every corporate culture.”
“This ranking is the result of a long-standing commitment that remains at the heart of Dell and the work we do in service of our customers,” he added.
In order to compile the green list, Newsweek partnered with three independent environmental research firms, MSCI ESG Research, Trucost and CorporateRegister.com, which provided and compiled the data to determine the most environmentally friendly companies.
