This aluminum comes from sustainable sources, using renewable energy. This helps cut down the carbon footprint by up to 89%, aligning with Dell’s big goals for sustainability by 2030.
  • Packaging Innovation: The packaging for XPS laptops is also special – it’s made from 100% recycled or renewable materials. This is a significant move to be more sustainable and reduce the impact on the environment.
  • EPEAT Gold and Climate+ Designation: The new XPS laptops are recognized for their environmental friendliness. They have EPEAT Gold certification, which means they meet strict environmental standards.
