Concept Luna – What’s Next?
- December 14, 2023
Technology is the backbone of our economy, and as a global technology leader, our customers need our hardware and solutions to run their businesses. At Dell Technologies, we have ambitious ESG goals to use more sustainable and recycled materials and to take back as many products as we sell to reduce waste and keep materials in use longer. We know these are ambitious goals, because that’s what the world needs right now—everyone contributing meaningfully to combat the estimated 54 million metric tons of e-waste produced globally each year. Dell has the scale and commitment to lead our industry in driving a more circular economy—and we’re going all in.
In just the last couple of years, our work on sustainability-related innovations has produced more than 430 patent applications as we infuse sustainability across our portfolio. The potential impact of these individual initiatives, viewed across a diverse product line like Dell’s, is exponential.
Concept Luna, introduced two years ago, is our vision of technology in a future world where nothing goes to waste. Our work on Concept Luna has inspired and accelerated circular design—from monitors and laptops to servers and storage, and everything in between.
Circular design in products means keeping materials and products in circulation as long as possible. Our initiatives fall into four interconnected areas:
We set out to engineer all that was possible with Concept Luna. We’re devoted to taking what we’ve learned and incorporating it into how we accelerate circular design across our breadth of products more quickly. This approach is reinforced by customer feedback, which stressed the importance of balancing ease of repair and performance with security, durability, reliability and longevity needs.
This is important work, and we are proud of the industry conversations and progress our explorations like Concept Luna have propelled. All companies should embrace circular design and big, out-of-the-box thinking. For us, Concept Luna started as a futuristic vision but has become the catalyst to accelerate company-wide commitments and initiatives to achieve ambitious ESG goals and positively impact business, people and the planet.
