Apple aims to decarbonize the global supply chain by 2030 • Blog iPhone in Canada
Apple, which has been carbon neutral for its global corporate operations since 2020, is now aiming to become carbon neutral throughout its global supply chain and the life cycle of each product by 2030.
The iPhone maker today called on its global supply chain to take further action to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and take a comprehensive approach to decarbonization.
In a press release earlier today, the company said it would assess the work of its major manufacturing partners to decarbonize their Apple-related operations, including running on 100% renewable electricity, and that She would also track their yearly progress.
“Addressing climate change remains one of Apple’s most pressing priorities, and times like this put those words into action,” said Tim Cook, Apple CEO.
“We look forward to continuing our partnership with our suppliers to make Apple’s supply chain carbon neutral by 2030,” Cook added. “Climate action at Apple doesn’t stop at our doorstep, and in this work, we’re committed to being a ripple in the pond that creates greater change.”
More than 200 suppliers representing more than 70% of Apple’s direct manufacturing spend have already committed to using clean energy like wind or solar for all of Apple’s production.
Key manufacturing partners committed to powering all Apple production with 100% renewable energy include:
- Corning Incorporated
- Nitto Denko Company
- SK hynix
To help suppliers meet their commitments and go even further, Apple offers a suite of free e-learning resources and live training as part of its clean energy program.
