“We’re going to double down on secrecy on products. But in other things Apple will be the most transparent company. Supplier responsibility, environmental issues … In this area I want people to copy us.” – Cook

On the 9th of April 2018, Apple announced that they reached an enormous milestone. All of Apple’s operations, worldwide, are now powered by renewable energy. This includes offices, Retail Stores and data centers. Apple is already known for their incredible products and services. But as far as I know, Apple is now also the first multi national that runs all of it’s own operations on renewable energy.

In China, solar panels are mounted high off the ground to let sunlight shine through, so grass can grow — and local yaks can eat it.

Sunseap, a clean energy provider, manages 32 megawatts of solar panels on more than 800 rooftops in Singapore.

Of course, the more seasoned people know Apple is a very big company. But, they can’t do everything. They work with thousands of suppliers and manufacturers to help build their products. So Apple also announced that some of it’s biggest suppliers would also commit to 100% energy use. Bringing the total number of suppliers who are committed to strive to 100% renewable energy to 23. Which is great! Let’s hope even more will follow.
I simply want to end with this.
“We’re committed to leaving the world better than we found it. After years of hard work we’re proud to have reached this significant milestone,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’re going to keep pushing the boundaries of what is possible with the materials in our products, the way we recycle them, our facilities and our work with suppliers to establish new creative and forward-looking sources of renewable energy because we know the future depends on it. – Apple Newsroom
