Apple Goes Completely Green; Now Powered With 100 Percent Clean Energy

Renewable energy projects that provide power to Apple facilities range from large wind farms in the United States to clusters of hundreds of rooftop solar systems in Japan and Singapore

Apple has announced that its global facilities are now powered with 100% clean energy.

"We're committed to leaving the world better than we found it", Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a prepared statement.

Apple has announced that its facilities worldwide are now 100% powered by renewable sources. Now this extends to 43 countries around the world, with 25 renewable energy projects that offer 626 megawatts of energy generation capacity.

An Apple representative has stated that the company now relies on RECs (renewable energy certificates) for 34% of its usage, and the rest coming from the company's own projects. Another 15 projects are in construction which, when complete, will bring its portfolio to 1.4 gigawatts of renewable energy generation in 11 countries.

That includes solar arrays and wind farms as well as other renewable technologies like biogas fuel cells, micro-hydro generation systems and energy storage technologies.

The company now requires RECs for 34% of its current clean energy status.

The achievement informs consumers around the world that it's not only possible for massive publicly traded global corporations to source 100% of their energy from renewables, but that its also the right financial decision.

Apple releases red iPhone 8
The 64GB iPhone 8 Plus is priced at $1,059 CAD, while the 256GB iteration is priced at $1,269. And you will be able to purchase the devices in stores starting on Friday, April 13.

An in-depth story published in Fast Company reports how Apple's announcement is the result of the company's aggressive, years-long effort to reduce its environmental footprint across the board-from its behemoth data centers, like the one in Reno, Nevada that hosts Siri and iCloud, to its smaller facilities in more remote places.

Apple is now 100% powered by clean energy. That makes 23 supplier commitments in Apple's supply chain, with 84 of suppliers having signed up for an Apple portal designed to,"help suppliers identify commercially viable renewable energy solutions in regions around the world".

"We're seeing the benefits of an increasingly competitive clean energy market". Now that the organization has reached this ambitious target, Apple product suppliers are being encouraged to transition to clean power as well.

Ms. Jackson added that Apple also will be challenged to keep its own facilities at the 100% level in the years ahead, especially as it looks to add a new campus in the U.S. and $10 billion in data centers. These partners include, DSM Engineering Plastics, Arkema and Pegatron. The leather that ECCO produces for Apple is of European origin, with tanning and cutting occurring at facilities in the Netherlands and China.

Alongside its own commitments, Apple has been on a mission to get its suppliers to commit to a greener lifestyle. Speak your thoughts on the news from Apple below and stay tuned for more on this coming soon. Luxshare-ICT's production for Apple is predominantly located in eastern China.

In the future, Jackson indicated Apple could require suppliers to operate with 100 percent clean energy.
