Dell Technologies - The Positive Impact Award Winner 2022

Dell Technologies 
Accepted by Nick Abbatiello,
Sr. Distinguished Engineer

The judges were particularly impressed with:

  • The millions of pounds worth of sustainable, recycled and renewable materials used in products and packaging, especially last year’s launch of PCs containing tree-based bioplastic upcycled from the paper-making industry and ocean-bound plastic.
  • The strong commitment that by 2030, Dell Technologies will reuse or recycle an equivalent product for every product purchased and that 100% of packaging and more than half of product content will be made from recycled or renewable material.
  • The work being done in communities around the world to increase digital inclusion through access to technology, skills and collaborative networks that foster digital transformation and tech-enabled innovation.



The Positive Impact Award highlights actions that will lead to a greener, fairer, and more sustainable future. 

Please provide a brief (up to 200 words) summary of why you believe this individual / organization should win, as well as details of any projects they’ve been a part of which would reinforce that statement.

If you are nominating someone else, please provide their details, rather than your own.

Please also note that multiple nominations of the same individual / organization will not increase their chance of making the shortlist and may even result in their disqualification.

I work for an agency, can I nominate a client?

Of course!

Can I nominate multiple people/projects from the same business?

Yes, providing each nomination is unique this is fine. What we do not allow is duplicate nominations (same name, same reasoning multiple times) – this will not give you more chance at being shortlisted and may results in the nomination being disqualified.

Is there a deadline for nomination?

Yes, nominations will close at midnight on June 5, 2023. There is no opportunity for extension.
