Apple to Utilize Clean Energy for Operation of Facilities
Apple’s facilities across the world operate on 100% clean energy, which includes company’s retail stores, offices, data centers and co-located facilities in 43 countries
Technology giant Apple announced on April 09, 2018, that company’s facilities in 43 countries operate on clean energy contributing from eco-friendly operation centers. The company also noted that nine more of its manufacturing partners have committed to powering all of their Apple production with renewable energy, bringing the number of supplier commitments to 23. “We’re going to keep pushing the boundaries of what is possible with the materials in our products, the way we recycle them, our facilities and our work with suppliers to establish new creative and forward-looking sources of renewable energy because we know the future depends on it,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook.
Since recent past Apple is focused on manufacturing products and its operations more environmentally friendly and aims to run operations entirely on renewable energy. In 2017, according to environmental responsibility report, the company powered 96% of its operations around the world with 100% renewable energy such as solar, hydro, and wind power. In 24 countries, Apple had reached the 100 percent renewable level and nearly 100 percent of the paper used in product packaging was from recycled or responsibly managed sources.
The company’s new headquarters, Apple Park in Cupertino, California, runs on renewable energy, including a 17-megawatt rooftop solar panel project and four megawatts of biogas fuel cells. Apple has 25 renewable energy projects in operation around the world that could generate 626 megawatts of capacity. According to the company, their use of clean energy helped prevent 1.5 million metric tons of greenhouse gases from being emitted in 2017. Furthermore, over 85 suppliers have signed up for Apple’s Clean Energy Portal that helps suppliers to find renewable energy in different regions around the world.
