Technology giant Dell has set itself a new target after surpassing its 2020 goal to use 50 million pounds of sustainable materials in its products, reports George Ogleby for edie.

"The fresh target will see Dell aim to use 100 million pounds of recycled-content plastic and other sustainable materials by 2020." Other sustainable advancements at Dell include carbon fibre recycling; a robust takeback scheme; improved supply chain transparency; packaging derived from plastic pollution; and strategic sustainability partnerships, including Ellen MacArthur's Circular Economy 100 programme.

Dell should be lauded for its sustainability efforts; they speak volumes. But they can go further by promoting extended use, as other manufacturers like Patagonia have done.
