93% Of Apple Facilities Run On Renewable Energy
Gareth Andrews / 7 years ago
Apple is quite busy these days, with the recent announcement of their new iPhone SE and their legal battles with the FBI regarding encryption. Amongst all of this though they seem to have time to keep investing and enhancing their facilities, with the recent revelation that 93% of their facilities run on renewable energy.
Of all of their facilities, 23 countries already have a complete transition to renewable energy, including those in China and the U.S. Some of these facilities use traditional means of renewable energy generation, with solar panels lining their Singapore rooftops while in China there is even a solar farm that has been built to be yak-friendly.
With ambitions to increase the materials used for packaging coming from recycled materials or sustainable sources, Apple doesn’t seem to be stopping on the eco-train either. With pressure coming more and more from governments and the public to use renewable sources and clean energy Apple looks like it wants to be ready for when people ask about it next.
Apple isn’t the only ones interested in green technology. Amazon has already expressed their interest in going green for their server farms and Microsoft going so far as putting some of its servers underwater, we could soon see a day where the companies creating your technology do it environmentally responsibly.
