Apple's announcement means that all of its data centers, retail stores, offices and co-located facilities in 43 countries around the world are now 100% powered by renewable energy - truly a feat worth celebrating.
"We're committed to leaving the world better than we found it", said Tim Cook, Apple'sCEO. Currently, Apple has completed 25 renewable energy projects all over the world, with 626 megawatts of generating capacity. China's investment in renewable energy-excluding large hydro projects-rose 30% compared with 2016, and was more than three times of that of the USA, whose investment in the sector dropped 6% from 2016 to $40.5 billion previous year.
There are 15 more projects under construction that will increase that total to 1.4 gigawatts in 11 countries.
Across the world Apple and partners are working on developing renewable energy projects that represent a diverse range of energy sources from solar arrays to wind farms, biogas fuel cells and micro-hydro generation systems. This arrangement, and others like it throughout the country, help companies and utilities meet their renewable energy goals.
Alongside its own commitments, Apple has been on a mission to get its suppliers to commit to a greener lifestyle.
As explained by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, "RECs are issued when one megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity is generated and delivered to the electricity grid from a renewable energy resource". So we'll keep signing contracts to buy more renewable energy.
"If you look at our trajectory, for the last couple of years we've been close to 100%", she told Mark Sullivan at Fast Company.
However, only 23 of its suppliers have met the commitment to be fully powered by renewable energy. BlackRock Inc., which is one of Apple's largest investors, added climate changea year ago to the list of topics it discusses with the companies in which it invests, for example. The leather that ECCO produces for Apple is of European origin, with tanning and cutting occurring at facilities in the Netherlands and China.
Apple is now 100% powered by clean energy. 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. This will only be a fraction of the Apple supply-chain, but it is still a good achievement.
Former Vice President Al Gore has already applauded Apple's efforts, thanking them for setting the standard and proving that moving to green energy can actually reduce energy costs and can even boost sales due to an improved perception of the company.
