Apple said in a statement that the number of suppliers committed to clean energy has doubled over the past year. This development will increase the Cupertinos’ chances of becoming a carbon neutral company in products as well as a supply chain by 2030.
In total, more than 175 suppliers will turn to clean and renewable energy. This brings more than 9 gigawatts of clean energy worldwide. As a result, more than 18 million tons of carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases are not produced annually, which is equivalent to the removal of more than 4 million cars from the roads per year.
Apple has added 10 new projects to Power for Impact for the first time to offer a clean energy solution to communities around the world. These projects are designed to provide renewable energy to communities that have fewer resources and at the same time seek economic growth.
Apple claims to be a carbon neutral company in its global operations. It also intends that all devices designed and manufactured by this company do not have an impact on climate change. The process of achieving this has already begun, and the Cupertinos have expanded the use of recycled materials in their products and created new projects focusing on environmental justice.
In total, Apple has reduced its carbon emissions by 40% over the past 5 years, which is a significant figure. Apple removed plastic from the box of 13 iPhones this year. According to Apple, the removal of plastic from the iPhone 13 packaging prevented 600 tons of waste from entering the environment, and the company has promised to completely remove plastic from the box of all its products by 2025.
