Apple Says Its Global Facilities Powered With 100% Clean Energy

12 Апреля 2018

Once built, it will have over 1.4GW of renewable energy generation across 11 countries.

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.

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

Not everyone on social media believed it, however. In some cases, Apple uses traditional energy sources, then buys an equal amount of renewable energy in an effort to offset its carbon footprint.

Ibiden, a component supplier outside Nagoya, Japan, maintains a floating solar photovoltaic facility to power 100 per cent of its manufacturing. However, it has managed to convince 23 companies in its supply chain to pledge they will get the Apple side of their business running off 100% green energy as well.

Apple is one of the leaders in renewable energy in the tech industry, and its approach towards building a sustainable future is different from competitors.

To overcome this problem, "Apple purchases what are known as Renewable Energy Certificates, or RECs, which are a tradable commodity that guarantee the cleanliness of an energy source", the Verge claims. Wal-Mart, on the other hand, has set two goals for the end of 2020: to procure 7 billion kilowatt hours of renewable energy while reducing power consumption by 20 percent. In total, Apple has 25 renewable energy projects around the world pumping out 626 megawatts of generation capacity. Apple notes that its own energy projects have prevented 2.1 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions, while its suppliers have avoided over 1.5 million metric tons just in 2017, equivalent to taking 300,000 cars off the road.

"We're building new data centers and offices, and as demand for Google products grows, so does our electricity load".

Where this will not be possible, Apple is committed to signing long-term contracts to support the emergence of new local production projects respecting strict specifications. Luxshare-ICT's production for Apple is predominantly located in Eastern China. The latest nine suppliers include Finisar, an American firm that makes parts to power Face ID and Animoji and Pegatron with iPhone factories in Shanghai and Kunshan in China.

Apple has reached its goal and is now fully powered by renewable energy, globally - but it isn't done yet.
