Apple has announced that over 110 of its manufacturing partners around the world are moving to 100 percent renewable energy for their Apple production, with nearly 8 gigawatts of planned clean energy set to come online.
Once completed, these commitments will avoid over 15million metric tons of CO2e annually — the equivalent of taking more than 3.4 million cars off the road each year.
Additionally, the company is investing directly in renewable energy projects to cover a portion of upstream emissions, as well as a major energy storage project in California to pilot new solutions for renewable infrastructure.
Last July, the company unveiled its plan to become carbon neutral across its entire business, manufacturing supply chain, and product life cycle by 2030.
Since that announcement, the company has significantly increased the number of its suppliers that are transitioning to renewable energy.
In fact they are actively helping suppliers to become carbon neutral by 2030 in geographical locations as diverse as Germany, China, the US, India, and France
Apple is already carbon neutral today for its global corporate operations, and this new commitment means that by 2030, every Apple device sold will have net zero climate impact.
The company recently shared new details about its $4.7 billion spend in Green Bonds to support environmental projects around the world.
