Technology Business Research (TBR) today announced Dell took the No. 1 position in its inaugural Corporate Sustainability Index (CSI) Benchmark Report for 2009. The report measures the environmental initiatives of 40 companies in the computer hardware, software, professional services and network and telecommunications sectors. Scoring 317.9 points, Dell led the second place firm (BT) by more than 52 points in the overall index ranking.

In addition to its overall top ranking, Dell also led firms in the computing sector, including IBM, HP, Sun Microsystems and Cisco. Dell scored particularly well in renewable energy use, recycling and its integration of a sustainability strategy in its business. Dell sources about 35 percent of its U.S. energy use from green power and approximately 20 percent globally, and it offers free computer recycling to consumers worldwide.

The report scored more than 100 discrete sustainability factors, including emissions, energy, renewable energy, annualized emission reductions, water use, recycling rates, public environmental commitments and more. Designed to provide sustainability data to IT vendors, customers, employees and financial markets, the CSI report will be available from TBR on June 1, 2009.
