We like technology, but we also have to see the other side of technology, a side that undoubtedly affects us negatively. And the fact is that the consumption of technology generates a lot of environmental problems due to the components themselves, or the energy that is used to create technology.
Apple’s green policy reaches out to its suppliers
As you can see in the image above, Apple has been interested in green energy for quite some time, Apple Park uses green energy in its entirety, and from Cupertino they want their suppliers to also join their green policy. Apple has just announced that 110 suppliers are already using green energy in their facilities. Keep reading and we will give you all the details of this important news.
They announced back in 2018, all of Apple’s operations would go carbon neutral, and the company’s interest was to extend this to their entire supply chain by 2030. Today they are announcing a change in their suppliers, that of using green energy. A commitment that leads them to generate 8 gigawatts of clean energy, which will avoid generating 15 million metric tons of CO2 per year. A breakthrough, not definitive, which undoubtedly shows us how Apple continues on its green path with the goal of 2030.
And it is not only the change in suppliers that is news. Apple has also announced the status of its investment in the largest (green) battery farm in the United States. A farm that will be powered by different renewable energy sources, and will have a capacity of 240 megawatt-hours, which is the same as 7000 homes for a day. We will see the impact of these policies in the next releases, surely they will surprise us with something new in the next Keynote at the beginning of WWDC 2021.
