Apple has announced two new ‘clean energy’ programs in China which are designed to reduce the carbon footprint of Apple’s manufacturing partners in China.
According to Apple these two new programs will avoid 20 million metric tons of greenhouse gas pollution between now and 2020, this is the same as taking 4 million cars off the road for one year.
We are excited to embark on this initiative with Apple. Our companies share a vision for driving sustainability and I hope that this renewable energy project will serve as a catalyst for continued efforts to promote a greener ecosystem in our industry and beyond,” said Terry Gou, founder and CEO of Foxconn Technology Group. “Sustainability is a core pillar in Foxconn’s strategy and we are committed to investing in green manufacturing.”
“Being responsible, protecting air and water, and driving clean energy are at the heart of Apple’s commitment to China,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives. “These projects go beyond Apple’s operations in China to help our suppliers adopt clean renewable energy.”
