Dell Inc recently released its annual 2020 Legacy of Good update, continuing the company’s long-term commitment to society, team members, and the environment.

The report summarises efforts during fiscal year 2018 (Feb.

The report and corresponding activities are rooted in Dell’s acknowledgement of its responsibility to realise a sustainable and prosperous future.

Dell’s purpose as a company is to drive human progress through technology.

One of the ways the company brings that to life is through its Legacy of Good commitment – to put Dell technology and expertise to work where they can do the most good for people and the planet.

For Dell that means investing in innovation that reduces environmental impact, supports a transparent supply chain, ensures an inclusive future workforce, and advances underserved communities.

“The Legacy of Good programme reflects what is possible when people and technology come together with purpose,” said Christine Fraser, Chief Responsibility Officer, Dell.

“Our customers, partners, and teams care about this work now more than ever, and we will continue to seek innovative ways to deploy our resources, design out waste, celebrate inclusion, and address the greatest need.” Amit Midha, President, APJ Commercial, Dell EMC, also added, “This region has a major part to play in demonstrating the strong link between technology and its potential to do good: for people, for communities, and for the planet.

Not only is Asia-Pacific and Japan a driving force for innovation but it is also home to some of the most powerful examples of how innovation and technology can drive meaningful change, and facilitate the future of human progress.” David Webster, President, APJ Enterprise, Dell EMC, commented, “More than ever, organisations in Asia-Pacific and Japan are recognising the impact that they can have by coming together around a common goal and using technology for good.

Sharing the results of our commitments for a Legacy of Good with our customers and the world at large shows that we, too, are transparently investing in making that change.

It also demonstrates how important those goals are to our organisation in the region, and how central they are to our relationships with our customers.” CREATING POSITIVE SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT IN MALAYSIA Dell Malaysia is committed to finding opportunities to do good for society, the community, and our planet, contributing towards the 2020 Legacy of Good goals.
