100% Renewable Energy

Apple has made significant strides towards its goal of becoming carbon neutral across its entire business by 2030, announcing that over 320 suppliers, representing 95% of its direct manufacturing spend, have committed to using 100% renewable energy for Apple production by 2030. This commitment is critical as nearly two-thirds of Apple’s carbon footprint comes from product manufacturing, primarily due to electricity use. In 2022, Apple urged its suppliers to decarbonize their Apple-related Scope 1 and 2 emissions, stating that sustainability progress would influence business awards. Since then, clean energy use in Apple’s supply chain has surged to 16.5 GW, a 20% increase from last year and 55% higher than in 2022. This initiative has helped prevent over 18.5 million metric tons of carbon emissions last year alone. Alongside supply chain improvements, Apple is investing in solar projects in Michigan and Spain to match electricity used by customers with clean energy by 2030 and advancing towards replenishing 100% of the fresh water used in corporate operations in water-stressed areas. These efforts underscore Apple’s commitment to building a sustainable future, highlighted by Lisa Jackson, Vice President of Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives, who emphasized the crucial role of clean energy and water in fostering healthy communities and sustainable business practices.
