Apple’s own operations are all run on clean energy and Apple has also been working to get its suppliers to also use clean energy.
The company has revealed that it has now doubled its suppliers that use 100 percent clean energy to a total of 44. The company has also revealed that it will exceed it previous goal of adding 4 gigawatts of renewable energy into its supply chain by 2020.
“Every time one of our suppliers joins us in our efforts to address climate change, we move closer to a better future for the next generation,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives. “We’ve made it a priority to hold our suppliers accountable to the same environmental standards we observe and hope that our collaboration will show others what is possible. While we are proud of our announcement today, we won’t stop driving change within our industry to support the clean energy transition happening globally.”
