Apple has today announced to go 100% carbon neutral by 2030, across all its operations like manufacturing and supply chain. This was detailed in its Environmental Progress Report of 2020, where 75% of emissions will be reduced to zero and the rest 25% by developing innovative carbon removal technologies.

Apple to Become 100 percent Carbon Neutral by 2030


Going Carbon Neutral for any firm isn’t so easy. This is means the company is using 100% of its power sourced from either renewable resources or making carbon footprints anyway but offsetting this by doing some environmental activities. Apple does both here. It has made wind farms to leverage wind energy and also recycling things to reduce new production, thus decreasing carbon footprints.

Apple has been a carbon-neutral for its global corporate operations, and now planning to go the same for its entire business by 2030. This includes the manufacturing, supply chain and product life cycle. Apple has also said that anyone retailer interested to be a part of its supply chain has to go green by 2030. Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO said, “Businesses have a profound opportunity to help build a more sustainable future, one born of our common concern for the planet we share.

Further, he added “The innovations powering our environmental journey are not only good for the planet – they’ve helped us make our products more energy-efficient and bring new sources of clean energy online around the world. Climate action can be the foundation for a new era of innovative potential, job creation, and durable economic growth. With our commitment to carbon neutrality, we hope to be a ripple in the pond that creates a much larger change.”

The Environmental Progress Report of 2020 contains plans for its future efforts of going 100% carbon neutral. The company said it’s planning to reduce 75% of its carbon emissions by 2030, and they also develop innovative technologies for carbon removal as the rest 25% efforts. This includes the maker’s Material Recovery Lab in Austin to partner with Carnegie Mellon University to develop solutions for better recycling.

And also, Apple said it disassembles the Taptic Engine from all iPhones to recover and reuse the rare earth elements like tungsten and other magnets. The company has set $100 million for Racial Equity last month and will be using part of its funds to aids these programs now. Apple said it will set a roadmap for all companies and industries to go carbon neutral in future.

When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is
added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Bless you!
